Ehehehe, Astrakhan are already out, no? Kicked by Kuban. LADA? Lada are indeed one of the top favourites, they have the best squad in Russia and EHF pedigree. If you are Russian wannabe, Goji, please inform yourself better! Lada is 10-0-0 in Russia, Kuban 6-0-3, lost by 13 at Rostov and by 5 on home field against Lada.
Strangely they previously lost in the Russian Superleague as host against Astrakhan, but being solid on home field put them in this position in EHF Cup. After managed not to lose by big margin on the road, they beat Astrakhan by 4 in Krasnodar.
Honestly it will be hard for Kuban to play a final in Europe.
I know it probably better than you, since I saw most of those games. And I'm not a wannabe of anything.
I would say Astrakhanockha have the best squad after Rostov; Postnova, Sabirova, Chigirnova, Ikhneva, Kochetova, Malashenko, Levsha, Samokhina, Kozhokar, Petrova. And they also som against Rostov 26-24 at home if im wrong. But, yes Lada is one of the favs now. Along with Vipers/Brest I guess.
