EHF has decided that every team will qualify from the group-phase due to the special circumstances of this season regarding the covid19 pandemic, travel difficulties, and illness. Originally the first two teams should have been directly qualified to the quarter-finals, but now Rostov and Metz from group A, Győr, and Moskva from Group B need to play two extra unplanned games.
Here are the play-off matches:

Krim Ljubljana – CSKA Moskva
Team Esbjerg – Brest Bretagne
