EHF Champions League on UK TV today
If you’re a fan of Kiel or Atletico then you’re in luck today because if you’ve got two chances to see your boys on British TV.
The lovely folks at Premier Sports will be showing today’s EHF Champions League group match in full at 4.15pm UK (Sky Channel 428) whereas British Eurosport 2 (Sky 411) will be showing highlights at 11.30pm.
British Eurosport 2 is also your home for the Euro 2012 Daily Show. Throughout the tournament at midnight and 5.45am they will be showing an EHF-produced review of the day’s events. No live coverage that I can see – for that you’ll need to head over to the EHF Euro YouTube channel.
Surprisingly, for a pair of teams who have between them have won the Champions League six times out of the last seven competitions, the match today is mainly to determine who will finish second in the group behind the Hungarians of Veszprem. The still invincible Kiel (domestically anyway) have returned pointless when asked to travel in a South Easterly direction, the fore mentioned Magyars and everyone’s favourite Slovenians wounding the Zebras.
For Madrid their problems have lain closer to home, having lost whilst entertaining their two main group rivals, though the Spanish also found that life was not so Swede when they were surprisingly defeated in Gothenburg.
Full details of how the group has gone so far can be found below in a treasure trove site of obscure handball data and statistics.
So for those of us who like to predict outcomes by inspired/uninformed guesses, please look away now
