VIDEO: EHF Champions League “Match of the Week” returns


Just a reminder that Champions League Group Play has started and the first ehfTV Match of the Week is later today as Poland’s Wisla Plock hosts Germany’s Kiel.  Wisla Plock knocked off France’s perennial power, Montpellier in a wild card playoff to reach the group stage, now they will try to upend traditional German power, Kiel in week 1.  Kiel is a 2.5 goal favorite.

The match will be available live on the ehfTV web streaming platform today (22 September) at 1700 Central European Time or 1100 U.S. Eastern Time.   English language commentary will be provided by the always energetic, Tom Ó Brannagáin.

If you can’t catch the match live it will also be available later “on demand”.  Further, U.S. residents with beIN Sport can also catch a retransmission on Monday, 23 September at 1700 (Eastern Time)
