If up in the final Potaissa caught a aisle favourable and has been the favorite in each tour, this time the transylvanians start with the second chance. Sporting Lisbon is a band powerful, the leader in the championship of Portugal. To give your opponent a able and better in terms of value, it must be said that Sporting has defeated recently Braga with 31-26, this last team being the opponent the team Dinamo in the Champions League this season (scores a direct Dynamo – Braga: 32-34, respectively 35-29).
