Six out of eight quarter finalist are already decided, while the other two it will be unveiled this Friday when the Round 6 of 2014/15 Men`s European Champions League will be held. Pairs are: Rosklide Bordtennis – Gazproma Orenburg, Pontoise Cergy – Olimpia Unia, Eslovs Al – Chartres ASTT, SW Werder Bremen – Wienviertel Niederosterreich, Sten Marketing HB Ostrov – TTSC UMMC, FC Saarbrucken – Vaillante Angers, Borussia Dusseldorf – SPG Walter Wels, GV Hennebont – Bogoria Grodzisk.

In Group A quarter finalists are known. The 2013/14 MECL finalists, Pontoise and Orenburg already booked their places for the next stage. Both sides have 4-1 score but Russian champion is on the top because of better set-ratio in games played between themselves. Olimpia Unia is fixed on third spot and it will continue in ETTU Cup. Roskilde is the fourth.

In Group B is clear that Werder Bremen will finished on the fourth spot. Other three clubs – Chartres, Niederosterreich and Eslovs – have eight points each. But Austrian club, the 2008 MECL winner will progress in the quarter-final no matter what will do in Bremen, because of better score in mutual games against French and Swedish club. Other quarter-finalist from that group will be the winner of encounter that will be held in Eslov.

Remaining question in Group C is: who will as no. 3 continue in ETTU Cup. UMMC is the first for sure, Saarbrucken will finish on second spot, while Sten Marketing and Angers are waiting the last round with 6 points each, but Czech side has the better ratio of wins to losses in games against French club

One of the most exciting games in Round 6 should be one in France where Hennebont hosts Bogoria Grodzisk. The winner will reach MECL quarter-final, while the loser will continue in the ETTU Cup. Austrian champion Walter Wels will stay on the fourth spot no matter what will happen on Friday.
