Anaitasuna 26-40 Barça: No let up from the champions

Barça win again and are now only two away from another perfect Liga season

Another win for the Barça handball team in the Liga Asobal, this time 26-40 away to Anaitasuna. That's now 28 out of 28 games won in the domestic competition, with only two games left to complete a perfect season.

Very strong in attack 

A good start saw Carlos Ortega's men take a three goal lead after five minutes (2-5), which was a sign of things to come, Domen Makuc and Hampus Wanne going on to score six and four goals respectively in the first 30 minutes.

The home side didn't give up and by the 20th minute were only four goals behind (10-14). Barça stepped it up in attack, however, stretching the lead to 15-22 at the break.

Win confirmed

Barça kept up the pace after the restart, but had a resilient Emil Nielsen to thank for making five saves from nine shots by the home side. The combination of good attack and defence stretched the lead even further to 13 goals, with Blaz Jann particularly effective.

The final score was 26-40, meaning another win in the domestic competition, as the perfect league season remains intact.
