Doha: Al Sadd will meet Macedonia’sHC Vardar in the bronze-medal match in the IHF Super Globe at the Duhail Handball Stadium on Monday.
The match starts at 5pm local time.
Sadd had lost to Germany’s defending champions Fuchse Berlin 23-30 while Barcelona defeated Vardar 32-29 in the semifinals.
The Qatari side can rely on the home support along with the likes of Danijel Saric at goal and stand-out attackers Abdulla Al Karbi on the right.
The European side’s roster is certainly deeper with a long list of stars including 2013 world champions Joan Canellas, Jorge Maqueda and Arpad Sterbik.
The EHF Champions League title holders have the edge, but nothing is decided before the final whistle.
