Naisa Nis await Faroese challenge in Last 16
Tuesday morning saw the pairing of teams for the Last 16 of the European Cup Women 2021/22, with the draw taking place at the EHF headquarters in Vienna.
Having seen off a Dutch side in the previous round, defending champions Costa del Sol Malaga have been drawn against another, in the form of Juro UniRek VZV, who overcame WHC Vardar last week.
There will be no Spanish derby in the Last 16 as the other two sides Bm Elche and Rocasa Gran Canaria, will face Maccabi Arazim Ramat gan and Izmir BSB SK respectively.
Faroe Islands' H71 are emerging as one of the big revelations in this season's competition, comfortably winning their round 3 tie against SPONO Eagles. Their reward is a clash with 2007 Challenge Cup winners ZRK Naisa Nis from Serbia.
