Placement Battles

EWHL
(PM EWHL) European Women’s Hockey League: while the Top 3 teams fight in direct duels in southern part of Austria for a better final tournament position, 4 others go for last play off spot…
EVB Eagles South Tyrol (24 points), Team Poland Silesia Brackens (24) and EHV Sabres Vienna (23) are ranked 4-6, the Austrians have even one game less played. 8th ranked Hvidovre IK Selects have only 16 points from 14 games, but their theoretical chance to qualify for the Final 4 Tournament is anyway still alive. And they now play the direct duels against Vienna Sabres where the situation is quite clear: Hvidovre needs at least 5 points to keep their chances alive while the Sabres need at least 4 points to have everything in own hands…
 
Leader MAC Budapest, KMH Budapest and Aisulu Almaty do not have these problems anymore. All three already have their play off spot secured. But of course they want the best possible position. On Saturday Aisulu will play in Carinthia against KMH – this duel will likely be also one of the semi-finals later. On the other side a possible winner after 60 minutes would still have the chance to go for first place in preliminary round. And on Sunday? If MAC will win this game, they will almost for sure go with pole position into the play offs…
