Especially since the most recent handball empire with the cup gala on Sunday repelled with all your might.

Magdeburg play a “fantastic season” and “absolutely deserved to stand up there”. But his team noticed “that nobody actually expected us here, and then we said: Stop, we are not that bad now.”
For the THW, the celebrations of Hamburg and a training-free Monday continues on Thursday with a home game against HSG Wetzlar. Magdeburg bends on Sunday with the tricky home game against the Füchse Berlin (point equally with Kiel on the third place in the table) on the seasonal desk.
