Palacio Municipal of León, one of the most difficult arenas for Barça Intersport
Barça Intersport will play to keep their title hopes alive this Sunday at 21:00 at the Pabellón of Reale Ademar in León. In the last couple of seasons FCB have has a very difficult time claiming victory in this venue.
FC Barcelona’s handball team have played 18 matches away to Ademar in the Liga Asobal. The team have won nine times, drawn four and lost five.
Of the nine victories, three have come in the last three seasons. In the 2008/09 season the Azulgranas won by 24 to 28. In the next season, Barça won by six goals (27-33). Last season the difference in goals was six as well, when Barça won by 24 to 30.
The last 10 matches
Despite winning in León for 3 consecutive years, the record over the past 10 years proves how difficult it is to beat Ademar on their home court.
The last visit from FC Barcelona Intersport to León, not in the Liga Asobal, was in December for the Asobal Cup. In the final of the competition, the Azulgranas narrowly beat Ademar by a solitary goal (27-28).
