CN Sant Andreu and Astrapool CN Sabadell, in the same Euro League group

CN Sant Andreu and Astrapool CN Sabadell have sorted in the same Euro League group. The draw ceremony took place today at the LEN headquarters in Nyon. Javier Aznar’s squad faced La Sirena CN Mataró in this same round last year, but this season the challenge will be tougher, as CN Sabadell are the main favorites in this group to qualify for the final. The other two teams in Group H are Dunaujvaros and UZCS Utrecht.

CN Mataró will be up against Ugra Khanty, Orizzonte Ctania and Lille UC. The first two teams of each group will go through to the two-legged quarter-finals, with home and away games.

The four groups are:

Group E, in Athens: Olympiacos, Plabiscito Padova, Dymano Uralochta and Messina

Group F, in Catania: La Sirena CN Mataró, Ugra Khanty, Orizzonte Catalia and Lille UC

Group G, in Budapest: Kinef Kirishi, UVSE Budapest, Vouliagmeni and BVSC  Zuglo Budapest

Group H, in Barcelona: Astralpool CN Sabadell, Sant Andreu, Dunaujvaros and UZSC Utrecht 

The four tournaments will be held on January 19-21 2018.
