There’s not much happening on the club level this week, but there is a plethora of national team competition taking place. Normally, these matches would all be friendlies in preparation for the World Championships, but thanks to COVID-19 related postponements there are ten 2022 European Championship qualification matches scheduled for ehfTV this week with 7 more on tap this weekend.

1715 CET Croatia vs Spain (Slight Favorite)
