TEAMS THAT ENSURED A TICKET TO THE LAST 16 PHASE AND THE LINE-UP OF THE POTS
After the last round in the Velux EHF Champions League, we are familiar with all of the teams that will play in the Last 16 phase. They are divided into four pots and the draw will select the eight-final pairs by format 1-4 and 2-3. The old rule applies that two teams of the same group in the preliminary phase cannot play against each other again the in the Last 16 phase.
HC Vardar, which is the only representative from Macedonia, might clinch with one of these teams: HC PPD Zagreb, Wisla Plock or Dunkerque.
