Flensburg-Handewitt vs. KIF Kolding takes place this evening in the Handball Champions League.
The game takes place at the Flens-Arena and is scheduled to start at 18:30 GMT.
Where to watch live:
Kolding Kobenhavn took the entire handball world – and Flensburg – by surprise back in September as Kolding defeated the ruling VELUX EHF Champions League winners 35:21.
Obviously, Flensburg will be seeking revenge for that humiliating defeat, when they take on Kolding in the Flens Arena Sunday evening, but they will be meeting a Danish team who seems to be almost impossible to defeat at the moment.
When Kolding won 24:19 away against Team Tvis Holstebro in the Danish league Wednesday evening, it was their 30th match in succession without defeat, counting Champions League matches, Danish league matches and Danish Cup matches.
According to veteran and defence specialist Lars Jørgensen, Kolding are going to Flensburg for another win.
“Of course, the 14 goals from the first match are far from giving a realistic picture of the difference in strength between our two teams, and we realise that we are going to play in one of the toughest away arenas in Europe.
“However, we have shown before that we can manage such environments, and we definitely want to keep our undefeated record,” 36-year-old Jørgensen told ehfCL.com.
Many Danes are expected in the Flens-Arena, but Jørgensen is not sure that this will mean an advantage to his team.
“Many Danish fans will be supporting Flensburg,” he believes, while Flensburg’s Danish left wing Anders Eggert disagrees.
“They will come to cheer for KIF,” expects the 32-year-old Danish international.
