Handball Web Streaming This Week (24-26 Nov 2020)

Toulouse hosts Leon in a key EHF European League match on Tuesday

Plenty of handball matches to watch the next 3 days.  What’s also fun to think about:  The switch to midweek means that American fans will be able to start a new Thanksgiving tradition on Thursday:  Dual screen Champions League Handball/NFL viewing after their turkey dinner.

American Athletes in Action

  • EHF European League:  Toulouse (-1.5) vs Leon (Tuesday, 2045 CET): Link
    • Circle Runner, Drew Donlin, plays for Leon.
    • Leon is on a 3 game winning streak with a victory over Metalaurg and 2 wins in Asoobal play, but Toulouse will present a tough road test.
  • EHF European League:  IFK Kristianstad vs Sporting Portugal (-1.5)  (Tuesday, 2045 CET): Link
    • Goalkeeper, Rene Ingram, plays for Kristianstad.  Ingram is Kristianstad’s 3rd keeper and is on the roster due to an injury to their top keeper.

Other Matches this Week

  • EHF European League LINK
    • In addition to the 2 matches above featuring U.S. players there are 7 other matches on Tuesday at either 1845 or 2045 CET.
  • EHF Champions League LINK

Were at the halfway point of the Champions League and that means we get return legs from last week’s matches.  This is generally interesting in that we get to see how coaches make adjustments in the intervening weeks to fix problems or pile on with what worked last week.  I’ll be watching to see if Flensburg can rebound from their surprise draw with Brest and whether Barca will have no problems with Kiel again.   No spoiler preview:  Link
