Tatabanya host Hannover in derby of the round

After RK Nexe won against their two biggest rivals, Grundfos Tatabanya KC and TSV Hannover-Burgdorf, they can prepare to the match with HC Eurofarm Rabotnik in round 3 of the Men’s EHF Cup Group Phase.

The Macedonian club’s home group phase debut last Sunday was not a success, as Tatabanya were able to steal the two points with a confident win. On Sunday, the Hungarian side face what could be a rollercoaster home clash against Hannover.
