France-Austria: at what time and on which channel to watch the Bleues match at the World Handball World Cup?

Still undefeated in its Women’s Handball World Cup in Scandinavia, the French team enters the main round this Wednesday (6 p.m.) in Trondheim, Norway. Placed in group 2, Olivier Krumbholz’s girls can already take a big step towards qualification in the event of a victory against Austria. An opponent supposed to be within their reach, especially since the Blues made a good impression in their first meetings.

In Stavanger, in recent days, the French took a little time to get into the swing of things, winning by a short head against Angola (30-29), before making their mark, easily beating the Iceland (31-22) then Slovenia (31-27). These successes allow them to attack their group with 4 points and already put them in a good position for qualification. Austria, with only 2 points, for example does not benefit from the same luxury and has an almost imperative to win.

The two adversaries, who last met in 2009, know each other relatively poorly. But the pedigree of Les Bleues, reigning Olympic champions and vice-world champions, puts them a step ahead. After the match against Austria, France will successively meet South Korea on Friday (6 p.m.) then Norway, host and huge favorite of the competition, in a clash for the head of the group, Sunday (8:30 p.m.).

The Women’s Handball World Cup match between France and Austria is scheduled for 6 p.m. this Wednesday, December 6, and will be broadcast live on beIN Sports 1.
