It's Spain vs Denmark and France vs Sweden on Friday, January 28 at the Handball EURO 2022 semi-finals at the MVM Dome in Budapest. You can also catch the Iceland vs Norway fifth-place play-off earlier in the day.
Defending champions Spain will be looking to make history with their third EHF EURO title in row and who'd bet against them? The personnel may have changed but their unruffled style remains the same. In their way stands the best offence in the tournament in the shape of Denmark and their 214 points across seven games so far.
Sweden face an equally nervy fixture on the other side of the draw with France only one point shy of Denmark's total on 213. These two high-scoring teams against will need little motivation having both lost out at the same stage, and to the same opposition, last time around.
Handball matches don't come with much more grudge than these. Follow our guide to watch the a free EHF EURO 2020 live stream online from anywhere.
