Plenty of matches worth watching so far in Round 2. I say, “so far” because I still haven’t seen Barcelona-Kiel. Here’s a rundown on the ones I think are worth watching.
HCM Constanta VS Montpellier HB: http://www.ehftv.com/ec/cl/men/2009-10/video/000682
There’s not enough hours in a day to watch every match at efhTV, so when I check out a match between a heavyweight (Montpellier) and a would be lightweight (Romania’s Constanta) I typically fast forward 5 minutes at a time just to make sure that it’s the predictable blowout that it’s supposed to be. True to form this match started out that way, but I soon found myself rewinding to figure out just what in the heck happened. Sorry, to give away some of the match, but trust me, it’s still worth checking out.
Rhein-Neckar Löwen VS KS Vive Targi Kielce: http://www.ehftv.com/ec/cl/men/2009-10/video/000716
Germany’s Rhein-Neckar hosts Poland’s Kielce in a battle for Group B supremacy.
HSV Hamburg VS BM Ciudad Real: http://www.ehftv.com/ec/cl/men/2009-10/video/000685
A repeat of one of last year’s semifinal matchups. It’s very early in group play but the head to head matches between these two sides could very well decide who gets the number one seed in Group C.
Pick Szeged VS A.C. PAOK: http://www.ehftv.com/ec/cl/men/2009-10/video/000737
Greek side A.C. PAOK was crushed by 26 goals vs. Montpellier last week. Can they make a more respectable showing visiting Hungary’s Pick Szeged?
RK Gorenje VS HC Bosna BH Gas: http://www.ehftv.com/ec/cl/men/2009-10/video/000740
Can the upstart Bosnians make it two upsets in a row with a victory on the road in Slovenia?
Pevafersa Valladolid VS Chekhovskie Medvedi: http://www.ehftv.com/ec/cl/men/2009-10/video/000739
