It’s déjà vu all over again this weekend as Flensburg and Zagreb will play each other again. Last Sunday, Flensburg held serve with a 32-29 win at home. This Sunday they travel to Croatia, where Zagreb will look to even things out with a victory. After this match there will still be 4 rounds left, but a Flensburg victory would all but assure them of at least 2nd place in Group D. A victory by Zagreb, however, would level the two sides on points.
It’s also worth pointing out that as there is a real possibility these two sides may finish the 10 rounds of group phase level on points. Should that happen, the goal differential between the two sides in their head to head games will decide seeding heading into the round of 16. Just something to keep in mind if Zagreb has a 2 goal leading heading into the closing minutes.
The match is at 5:30 PM (Central European Time), 11:30 AM (U.S. East Coast) on Sunday, 28 November. Zagreb is 1.5 goal favorite.
