The Bundesliga first round continues and the defending champion goes on TV. The Swedish Cup closes the weekend and six elite teams are in action to consolidate their positions against lower-ranked teams.

THW Kiel won 29 of 24 league matches last year and topped the table with two points to their name. Stars like Niklas Landin and Sander Sagosen have left the zebra team, while fans eagerly await Elias’ beautiful statement at Skipagøtu over the summer.

Kiel has already managed to win a title in 2023/24 after the Super Cup penalty decision. Newcomer HBW Balingen-Weilstetten haven’t scored a point against the giants for seven years.

Among the four women’s and two men’s matches in the Swedish Cup, Lugi HF are under pressure to score points against IK Baltichov, while Skuru IK and Skövde HF will add to their winning streak.

HK Malmö and HK Aranäs have, on paper, the toughest fight of the group first with the game starting at 4:00 p.m. at Baltiska Hallen.
