FR Gottéron knows his opponent in the round of 16 of the Champions Hockey League. The Friborg people will compete against Red Bull Munich. The first leg will take place on November 16 or 17 in Germany and the return one week later in Freiburg.
Coached by the American Don Jackson (65), who was an NHL defender in the 80s, Red Bull Munich are in 1st place in the German professional league (DEL) with a collection of 24 points in 10 matches. His best counter is American striker Austin Ortega (27), who has a record of 7 goals and 7 assists.
The Bavarian club won second place in Group D in the group stage (6 matches, 12 points) of the Champions League behind the Swedes of Rögle. He had notably won 1-6 in Zug on October 13.
In the event of qualification, the Dragons would meet in the quarter-finals the winner of the confrontation between the Finns of Lukko Rauma and the Italians of Bolzano.
As for the Zurich Lions, the second qualified Swiss club, their task seems a priori a little more complicated since they will face the Swedes of Rögle.
