The schedule is not final and the EHF reserves the right to exchange the rounds!
After the draw, we asked Ambros Martín: "I can't be dissatisfied with the draw, maybe our group is a little more challenging, but the outcomes will depend on our own performance. We've got great opponents ahead of us, there's no question about that, besides the defending champion, the rookie team is in our group. It's going to be a special season because there's more new players will join the team this year and we'll have less time to prepare for the Olympics, but that's also true for most of our opponents. I've spoken with the players a lot in the last of couple weeks and I have a really good feeling, of course we'll do everything to get the best out of them. Most important, however, the essentials will not be decided in the group phase, but next May and June!"
