Telekom Veszprem vs. Aalborg Prediction, Tips & Odds – May. 12, 2022
EHF Champions League knockout stage continues this Thursday with two new exciting fixtures. The match of the day is the clash between the Hungarian heavyweights Veszprem and Danish giants Aalborg. Both teams have serious firepower and should guarantee two great games which will decide who progresses to the Final 4.
During the newer history Veszprem were close to winning the Champions League title losing in the final three times. They suffered three heartbreaks between 2015 and 2019 as every season they have to be regarded as strong title favourites.
Hungarian roster is a mixture of the best of the best with their marquee player interestingly being one of the leading Danish players in the world, Rasmus Lauge. He will have to forget friendships going up against a team from his country as he is a vital part of Veszprem´s offense.
Veszprem was in one of the toughest groups and had to go through an additional playoff elimination round knocking out Vardar. Their schedule was difficult but they faced teams at the level of Aalborg which already beat them, so they could be vulnerable against a high-flying Danish team full of stars.

The new superpower in the EHF Champions League, Aalborg, are looking to win the title. A Scandinavian team has never won this competition, and neither a team from Denmark whose sponsors and handball elite have decided to start a new project after a failure around a decade ago.
They are entering this clash in excellent form from the domestic championship where they have shown dominance. With the arrival od Mikkel Hansen next season they will be even stronger but at the moment also have enough quality to fight against the best teams in Europe.
That was proved during the group stage when they finished at the top of a very respectable group and sent a clear signal to the handball world. They are a new title contender and Veszprem will have their work cut out for them.

Telekom Veszprem vs Aalborg Prediction
Hosts are rightly the favourites at home but we feel Aalborg can cause problems immediately looking to secure a favourable result before heading back to Denmark. Veszprem´s high-scoring offense meets its match as the away team is one of the rare teams in Europe which can keep up with them.
Pick: Handicap Aalborg (+3)
