Euro women's handball: 3 things to know before France-Sweden

2020-12-15T08:37:40.190Z

Everything is possible for the Bleues of Olivier Krumbholz, according to the result of Tuesday's match (6.15 p.m.) against the Scandinavians. From the qualification



The Blue will finally know if their adventure at the Euro, which takes place in Denmark, continues in the semi-finals.

The defending champions, who meet Sweden on Tuesday (6:15 p.m. on BeIN Sports) for their last game of the main round, have their fate in hand to qualify.

The rest, that is to say the next opponent (perhaps the formidable Norway), does not depend on them.

Several possibilities to qualify

After the first two meetings, France and Russia, still undefeated, share the lead of Group 1 with 7 points.

Denmark follows at a length.

Which means that a victory or a draw is enough for the France team to go to the semi-finals.

A defeat against the Swedes would not necessarily be synonymous with elimination.

The salvation of our Blue would then pass by a success or a draw of the Russians against the Danes, during the last match of the evening (8:30 p.m.).

Sweden not defeated in advance

Already eliminated, the Swedes could, in absolute terms, let go.

It would be bad to know them, especially since they can help another Scandinavian country: “This team is quite overhauled with new players who form a good amalgam with the old ones, says Olivier Krumbholz, the French coach.

We will have to defend well.

Sweden is very close to the top, and it is struggling to cross the threshold.

Most of the time, we win, but it's always tough games.

The Nordiques will count on Linn Blohm, the competition's 7th best scorer (22 goals).

Norway to avoid

If the French qualify, their semi-final will take place this Friday.

It remains to be seen against whom, knowing that the meetings will be crossed, that is to say that the first of each of the two groups meets the second of the other.

In group 2, the demonstration of Norway, already qualified and assured of finishing first, made him one of the favorites for the title.

To avoid it in the semi-finals, we must therefore finish ahead of Russia and Denmark, that is to say, hope for a victory for the Danes on Tuesday evening.
