Euro League second qualification round draw

The draw for the 2nd qualification round of the women's Euro League, held on Friday, saw a sensational group C being created. Here Friday's European Super Cup contenders, defending champs Olympiacos and LEN Trophy runners-up Padova, are being joined by fellow Greek powerhouse Vouliagmeni in Portuense, Portugal where the home team also meet London Otter to complete the busy group. More interestingly just the two best sides advance to the quarterfinals so heated battles can be expected.

In other results Russian teams Kinef Kirishi, a usual contender for the Final Four, and Uralochka Zlatoust, face off against German champion Bayer Uerdingen and ambitious hosts Sant Andreu. In group B, played in Budapest, home team UVSE will be favourite despite meeting Hungarian rivals Szentes, and outsiders Red Star and Spartak Volgograd.
Spanish title contenders and last year's finalists Sabadell travel to Lille, France taking on the home team, Spanish rivals Mataro and outsiders from Italy Messina. The games will be played in the first weekend of February.
