THW Kiel v FC Barcelona EHF Champions League live stream - European powerhouses battle for Final4 qualification

Brendan O'Neill 24 Apr 2016
  • Barcelona have lost just once in all competitions this season
  • Catalans bidding for back-to-back Champions League titles
  • Kiel have produced their poorest group phase showing in the competition this season

European powerhouses THW Kiel and FC Barcelona face off in the quarter-finals of the EHF Champions League on Sunday evening with a place in the Final4 in Cologne at stake over two legs.

Barcelona head to Kiel for the first leg this weekend having only won twice at the German club although their last trip in 2011 saw the Catalans eliminate Kiel in the last eight.

Both teams boast proud records at the Final4 of Europe's premier club competition and are the only sides to have won the trophy more than once with Kiel successful in 2010 and 2012 and Barcelona in 2011 and 2015.

They are also the only sides with five out of six possible participations at the end of season finale although Barca are the winning most in the competition's history as either the European Cup or EHF Champions League with nine victories compared to Kiel's three.

And the team from Catalonia is in flying form this term having tasted defeat just once in all competitions thus far, losing at Rhein-Neckar Löwen in their Champions League opener. A draw at Kielce followed in the continental competition but the defending champions have won all of their other fixtures at home and abroad, which is a phenomenal record.

"It will be our match of the matches in this Champions League season," conceded Kiel Coach Alfred Gislason in the build up to the match. 
"Barcelona have one of the strongest squads in the world with a huge width full of quality options to rotate, but we have proved in our last 16 match on home ground against Szeged that we can stand the heat and the pressure. 
"I am optimistic to gain a positive result - as Cologne is our goal."

Kiel could only manage a fourth placed finish in the group stage of the competition, which is their poorest group phase showing since the introduction of the new system in 2009. That included five defeats in all and their first home loss in over four years in Europe at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain last November.

Kiel are also embroiled in a three way battle with Flensburg and Löwen for their 21st Bundesliga title, whilst Barca only need a point in their domestic league to land their 23rd Liga Asobal title.
