Which teams qualify from quarterfinals to Final 4?
Baltic Handball League
The setup for the Final Four of 2018/19 Baltic Handball League season is complete. The last qualifier was Dragunas Klaipeda, beating compatriots VHC Šviesa Vilnius in both quarter-final legs. Semi-final pairings will be SKA Minsk – Cocks Riihimäki and Dragunas – ZTR Zaporozhye. The host of the Final Four will be announced in coming days.
After the most fascinating regular season of recent years, it was surprising how one-sided some of the quarter-finals of 2018/19 Baltic Handball League turned out to be. ZTR Zaporozhye and title-defender Cocks Riihimäki marched to the final tournament with some relatively easy wins. The last participant of the Final Four will be decided next Saturday.
Two more participants of this season's Final Four of the Baltic Handball League – to join regular season winner SKA Minsk – will be clear by Sunday evening, as five of the six quarter-final matches will take place over three days. Arguably the most intriguing clash will take place between last year's finalists Serviti Põlva and Cocks Riihimäki.
Baltic Handball League's final weekend of the regular season delivered as it promised – fascinating matches with some big wins, one-goal victories and surprises as well. SKA Minsk emerged as the biggest winner of the weekend, moving on top of Group A and qualifying directly to the Final Four, to be held in April.
Regular season of 2018/19 Baltic Handball League will end in the coming weekend and what a final two days we will have in the competition. SKA Minsk and ZTR Zaporozhye will go head-to-head in Minsk to determine the direct qualifier for the Final Four, while other three places in Group A are all still unclear. In Group B there is a three-horse race for two places.
Two postponed matches were played last week in Baltic Handball League, as Cocks Riihimäki visited the Eastern-most clubs of the BHL. The title-holder returns with just a point, having lost to SKA Minsk and playing a draw against ZTR Zaporozhye.
