Because it’s the 2nd tier competition and because there are so many matches to list, I don’t normally don’t discuss the EHF European League. However, there are a couple of matches on Tuesday that I’ll highlight since they are Germany-France club showdowns and are a window to the relative strength of the world’s 2 best leagues.

Both feature 2nd place clubs hosting a club bit further down in the standings. Up first is Berlin taking on Nimes (currently in 6th place in the French League) at 1845 CET and that match is followed by Montpellier hosting Magdeburg (currently in 5th place in the German league) at 2045 CET. 2 matches are by no means a definitive answer, but it will provide some insight.

CET is 6 hours ahead of US ET. Odds courtesy of Bet MGM.
