Lviv win in Faroe Islands
The first leg between Lviv and H71 was not played last weekend, as the Faroese team did not travel to Ukraine following advice from their national government.
However, the teams met in the second leg in Torshavn on Sunday, and Lviv took a narrow 27:26 win, but a decision regarding the future of this tie will be communicated by the EHF at a later date.
