RK Nexe vs. GOG Handbold Prediction, Tips & Odds – Apr. 26, 2022
Croatian team Nexe have always remained in the shadow of RK Zagreb in their domestic league but this year they are making the breakthrough. With their emphatic 40:22 win over Sesvete last Saturday they secured second place and qualified for the league playoffs. Now they are fully focused on probably their biggest game in club history, a quarter-final European League clash with Danish GOG.
Team from Našice is having one of their best and most memorable seasons ever. In the league they managed to take down their biggest rivals Zagreb after a very long time and also achieved their biggest European success by progressing into this European League quarter-final.
However, their fairytale might be coming to an end as they will be facing one of the powerhouses of this competition – Danish heavyweights GOG. It will be a two-legged tie so they will have to go all out at home this Tuesday as they are more than aware their chances in Denmark are extremely limited.
Led by experienced Slovenian expert Branko Tamše and Croatian international Halil Jaganjac they could cause problems to GOG at home in front a small and congested arena. Playing at home is of the essence for Nexe who will be backed by their loyal fans in their attempt to take down the second-best team from Danish handball.

GOG secured their quarter-final place after eliminating Spanish Bidasoa with two wins. Led by their Swedish duo Bergendahl–Tollbring, who won the European title with their national team this year, they are currently one of the main title favourites in this competition.
One of the most-decorated Danish handball teams of all time won their last domestic title 15 years ago. Their biggest European success came in the distant 1995 when they finished as the runners-up in this competition. Their glory days are long gone but they are still at the top in their domestic league, which is one of the strongest ones in Europe.

RK Nexe vs GOG Handbold Prediction
At home Nexe should put up a fight against the Danish favourites and keep the game competitive until the very end. During the group stage GOG has proven vulnerable away from home so taking Nexe to cover the +1.5 spread looks like a very strong option.
Pick: RK Nexe (+1.5)
