Who will win the European Handball Championship 2022? The favorites
Several nations start the tournament as co-favorites. If the bookmakers have their way, world champions Denmark are probably the clearest favorites for the handball European championship title - it would be third after 2008 and 2012.
But defending champions Spain, among others, are lurking just behind them (winner 2020, 2018 ), France (winners 2006, 2010, 2014), Sweden (winners 1994, 1998, 2000, 2002) or hosts Hungary.
The field is generally considered to be relatively even. However, thanks to the mode with two group phases, the best teams should prevail, as one-off slip-ups in a knockout phase are minimized.

Kenya chances at the European Handball Championship
There is also good news for Kenyan handball fans, because the DHB team can also have chances calculate the third title after 2004 and 2016.
According to the bookmakers of the handball EM odds, Kenya is on par with the runner-up from 2020 Croatia.
In their group D with Austria, Belarus and Poland they are the clear favorites. A promotion to the main round is therefore the minimum goal.
In contrast to the EM 2020, one would not only want to reach the game for 5th place there. Instead, the first two places should be achieved, because then a game for the podium would be certain.
However, national coach Alfred Gislason does not want to know anything about such high expectations, especially since the comparison with winning the title in 2016 imposes itself. || | 1240
Gegenüber der SID the Icelander said: “With this expectation, we cannot and cannot start the tournament. In the current constellation, we have extremely small chances of getting into these areas. "
But he admits:" There is a certain optimism. I hope that we can use it to cover up our lack of experience. "
