SVG Lüneburg vs. VfB Friedrichshafen

2:00 p.m. EST/ 11:00 a.m. PST

After game one, it's clear that Erik Mattson (Toronto, On) and SVG Lüneburg are playing against one of top teams in the world. Now it's time for them to prove they're equal to the task. They trail 1-0 in the best of five series, but something tells us the 2014 Bundesliga Team of the Year won't back down that easily.

Ajaccio vs. Sète

It's do or die for GFC Ajaccio. Sitting on the edge of the playoff picture, Rudy Verhoeff (Calgary, Ab) and Brett Dailey (Ottawa, On) need at least two points to stay ahead of Chaumont, who are only two points behind and have a fortunate match today against Narbonne. A win puts them in, and a loss could very well mark the end of their season.


Lyon vs. Toulouse

2:00 p.m. EST/ 11:00 a.m. PST

Toon van Lankvelt (Rivers, Mb) and Adam Simac (Ottawa, On) have one final match to push for second today. Winners of two in a row, another victory today coupled with a Cannes lost will have them sitting pretty for the playoffs. 


Béziers vs. Hainaut

2:00 p.m. EST/ 11:00 a.m. PST

It's simple for the Béziers Angels in the last match of the regular season: win and move on to the playoffs, lose and you're playing for 5th. Currently tied for fourth with Nantes, Rebecca Pavan (Kitchener, On) will will help lead her team to victory. 


Nantes Rezé vs. Paris

Things are simple for Max Burt (Gander, NL) and Nantes. A win keeps them in the top division for next season, a loss will most likely have them have them relegated.

One final match for Dan Jansen van Doorn (Langley, BC) in the top division before Tourcoing is relegated.
