PREVIEW & TIPS PPD Zagreb VS Kristianstad
For the change from the last round of the group stage of the handball championship for our analysis, we took a duel that definitely did not derail, since the two last team members are in the group but it is very important also for Zagreb and Kristianstad. The winner of this duel will likely win the placement in the finals, unless Wisla surprised Vardar in Skopje, which is hard to expect. Both teams have six points, with Zagreb playing something better just in the end of the group stage. The first mutual duel of these rivals ended at 28:28.

In the end, however, Croatian champions came to the situation to be able to place themselves in the eighth finals, and they practically decide on their destiny in the home game. More than they really could not expect, especially after the very poor start of the group stage, when they scored only two points in the first nine rounds in two rows. They were waiting for the first time until the tenth round, and then they played the best match this season and it was very easy and convincingly to beat German champion R.N Lowen.
It was a hint of better days, and they then beat very good Nantes, and little was missing in the last round and Pick Szeged was away. In the end they lost 30:28, and Horvat shook right to score 11 goals. Meanwhile, they provided good resistance to Vardar in the SEHA league, but they are minimally defeated. Bičanić is questioned for this reason.
Convinced initial composition of PPD Zagreb: Kastelic, D. Markovic, Bičanić, Pavlović, Miklavcic, Horvat, Vori

And the second win they made was minimal and they also made it on the domestic pitch against Wisle at 25:24. The remaining two points were won in two ranks, with Zagreb and Wisl, but away. The other matches were mostly lost, with Kristianstad having a win win in the eighth finals.
The problem is that in the very bad form and in the Champions League they lost the last four games, all against the strong favorites and the best resistance provided R.N Lowen away when they lost 32:29. In Skopje they experienced a real catastrophe, and they were solidly opposed to Nantes and Barcelona in their field. In the home championships, the leaders are on the table, but have missed the week at Malma at 21:17. The first star of this team is the Swedish representative, the right-hander Lagergren.
