The Executive Committee of the European Handball Federation met, last Thursday, April 28, in the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, during the draw for the group stage of the European Women’s Championship 2022, which will also include the Polish national team. The meeting in Ljubljana was the first since the 2022 European Championship for men in Hungary and Slovakia, and the penultimate meeting in the 2021/22 season, when the next and last session of the current season is scheduled to take place in the fourth final of the Champions League. in Cologne (18-19 June).
During the meeting, the hotel’s executive committee made several key decisions. The most important of which is the abolition of the “Away Goals” rule in all club and national team competitions under the auspices of the European Football Association from the 2022/23 season. In the event of equal goal difference after two knockout matches, the match is settled on penalty kick basis.
The provision of “away goals” has been applied in handball since forever. He has repeatedly decided the results of the European Cup matches. Such was the case in the 2011/12 Champions League knockout stage – exactly ten years ago, when Fouche Berlin advanced to the quarter-finals. The German team initially lost away to Spain’s Ademar Leon 23:34, then won in their home hall in 29:18. The score was 52:52 on aggregate, and the away goals base outpaced the promotion scales.
A similar situation also occurred in the previous Champions League season. In the 2020/21 edition, she worked for Denmark’s Aalborg Handbold – 29:32 away loss and 27:24 home win against FC Porto. In total, the score was 56:56, and the Danes were happy to qualify for the quarter-finals, who eventually reached the grand final of these matches. However, they were hit hard by FC Barcelona (23:36).
Also this season, Orleen Wisla’s Europa League opponent, Kadeten Schaffhausen, has benefited from the ongoing measure. The Swiss national team competed in the 1/8 finals with Sweden’s IK Savehof. He won 32:26 at home, and lost 28:34 in the rematch (60:60 on aggregate).
