European Men's Handball Championships Prediction

To make a good prediction you need to understand how a competition works, let's talk a little about the organization of this Euro 2022 Men's Handball tournament. Organized in 5 host cities (Budapest, Debrecen, Szeged, Bratislava, Kosice), the tournament will start with a preliminary qualifying round, played from January 13 to 18, 2022.

Divided into 6 groups of 4 teams, the 24 nations present will first have to secure one of the top two places in their group, aiming to continue into the next stages of the competition. Nothing complicated so far, as we already know the format. However, this is where this competition differs from others. Unlike other tournaments we are used to following on Sportytrader, the 12 teams that qualify at the end of this first phase will again be divided into two groups, of 6 teams in total: Group I and Group II of the Main Phase.

In this main phase, played from January 20 to 26, only the top two teams in each group will qualify for the semifinals, while the third-place teams will compete for fifth place in the tournament. There is therefore a long way to go to reach the title, which means a lot of predictions for the bettors. We advise you to prepare and analyze your sports bets carefully, because this Handball Euro 2022 promises, and a lot can happen in this much anticipated tournament.
