With the competition entering round 12 of 14 this weekend, two more clubs could join already qualified Györi Audi ETO KC into the EHF Champions League Women 2023/24 quarter-finals: Odense Håndbold in group A, and the winners of the MOTW between Metz Handball and Team Esbjerg in group B. However, they would need other results to go their way in order to lock up a top-two spot in their respective group already this weekend.

So far, our best performances in the Champions League have been when we have had a strong belief in ourselves. I believe that the key to playing well against Buducnost on Friday is to have a strong defence.

20240201 CLW R12 Preview Quote Buducnost
Before the last game against Györ, we said that the most important thing is that the young players get a place in the roster in the remaining part of the season in the Champions League. It is important that we play a good game in Sweden, that the energy and approach are like against Györ. The most important thing is that this is not missing and then we can expect a good result.

20240201 CLW R12 Preview Quote Odense
We have the chance to secure a top-two position this weekend. Brest have shown an impressive stability and form lately, so we know that we face a top-class opponent. This is a great test for us, with a possible big reward if we win. Our home crowd will be a big support on Saturday.

20240201 CLW R12 Preview Quote Brest
We played well against Odense in the first match but we lost by one goal. Odense are a great team with great players. For our part, we want to continue our momentum and manage to put in a great match against a contender for the EHF FINAL4. We will prepare as best as possible for this match.

20240201 CLW R12 Preview Quote Györ
There is always something special about playing against CSM Bucharest, because you are playing against a team of great quality players. We want to keep the momentum that characterises our form in the Champions League. We want to show our loyal fans and supporters that we can once again perform at a high level."

20240201 CLW R12 Preview Quote Csm
We know that going there will be really tough but I think honestly the pressure is more on them than on us. If we do a good job, I think it is possible for us to win this game. We shouldn’t make any mistakes because they know how to take advantage of them.

Since our first match, DVSC have improved significantly. We have been warned about this and will prepare specifically for this match again in order to get two points with the support of our great fans.

We have to face a team with a very physically strong defence and be prepared for that. It’s a defence that goes forward and really use their physicality. We solved that with a very mixed level in the first match. So its going to be a huge key, that we can produce chances against the aggressive defence

20230921 CLW R3 Preview Quote Jensen
Playing away against Metz will always be one of the toughest matches to play in a season, because they do not lose that many point on home court. It is also a head to head match for the first seed in the group, so there are many things at stake in this match.
Jesper Jensen
Head coach, Team Esbjerg
20240201 CLW R12 Preview Quote Rapid
Probably the most important game of this season until now. I know that after FTC, we have another two finals against
Lubin and Esbjerg, but it is the first step if we want to continue playing in EHF Champions League this season. We know that it will be very a tough game but I think that we will have our chances and we have to be ready. Also for us it’s really important that we play at home because our supporters will be next to us.
