The match is a homecoming of sorts, for Nikola Karabatic, who played at Kiel for 4 seasons winning a Champions League title with the club in 2007. For Kiel’s Frenchmen Thierry Omeyer and Daniel Narcisse it will be an chance to play against the top side from France and several friends on the National Team. In addition, Omeyer has recently announced that he will return to Montpellier in 2013 when his current contract expires.
This will be the only match with English commentary, but handball fans might also want to check out the Berlin-Kielce match which starts an hour and half prior. Kielce will surely want to avoid going into an 0-2 hole.
