It’s time for the national anthems.


    The entrance ceremony has just begun.


    Moldovans Igor and Alexei Covalciuc were assigned to referee this match. EHF Delegate is Carmen Manchado Lopez from Spain; Denis Reibel from France will be the observer.


    The team of Montenegro is the surprise in the semifinals of the European championship. So it had won all three preliminary round matches in Podgorica at home and traveled to Skopje with a decent cushion for the main round and was able to afford bankruptcies against France and in the meaningless last match against the Netherlands, which was completely given away with 25:42.


    The Danish handball players started the tournament with a surprising defeat against co-hosts Slovenia, but have not lost a point since then. They made their biggest exclamation mark so far in the final main round game, in which they defeated Norway, which had been flawless to date, after a deficit of 31:29 and thus avoided Olympic champion and top favorite France in the semi-finals.


    After the Swedes took fifth place in the afternoon with a 37:32 win against the Netherlands, the final weekend of the 15th European Women’s Championship is now all about the four nations that are left in the fight for the continental crown .


    Good evening from Ljubljana! The national teams of Denmark and Montenegro will face off in the first semi-final of the European Championship. The throw-off in the Arena StoĹžice is scheduled for 5:45 p.m.
