Which team will win Baltic Handball League 2020?
Baltic Handball League
There have been some very exciting matches and events throughout the regular season of 2019/20 Baltic Handball League. But the final weekend promises to produce even more excitement for handball fans or even mathematicians. Winner of Group A and our first Final Four participant will be determined on Sunday in Minsk. In Group B there are four teams who can qualify for quarter-finals.
Another one of the postponed matches was held last Friday before this weekend will see the finish of the regular season. In Minsk two teams met, that have shared last seven BHL titles. This time they shared points, as SKA and Cocks Riihimäki produced an exciting match, which ended in a 27:27 draw.
The week, where three important postponed matches were played in Group A, brought much more worrying news for Baltic Handball League. The leader of Group A, ZTR Zaporozhye has withdrawn from the competition due to financial problems. The decision about ZTR's results and upcoming matches will be taken by BHL's leadership this week.
Eight important matches were played over the course of the weekend in Baltic Handball League. Lithuanian clubs came out almost with a "full house", using poker terms, as they won four and drew one of the five matches being involved. ZTR Zaporozhye also added two victories to their tally, while HC Kehra/Horizon Pulp&Paper collected a derby-win.
Regular season in Baltic Handball League is getting into descisive stage, group tables show a very close race for the play-offs is ahead. This weekend eight matches will be played, most of them in Group B, where the competition for two quarter-finals spots is exceptionally even and hugely important matches lay ahead.
International club handball was picking up speed as EHF EURO 2020 was ending. Baltic Handball League had another postponed match played on Saturday before an eight-match weekend on the first two days of February. Former BHL winner Serviti Põlva hosted title-holder Cocks Riihimäki and the two "old friends" shared points with a 27:27 draw.
