The 7th Match Day of the Asobal League will kick off this Tuesday at 20.30 at the Palau Blaugrana in a match that will pit one of the most dangerous teams in the league, Globalcaja Ciudad Encantada, who are undefeated on the road, against FC Barcelona Intersport.

Gunning to remain unbeaten

The men led by Xavi Pascual come into the 7th Match Day of the Asobal as the unbeaten leaders of the competition. After beating Aranda Duero last week, the Blaugrana were made to work hard for the win against Dinamo Minsk in the Champions League.

Without a doubt, Barça will face off against one of the most complicated teams in the competition this evening. The Cuenca-based team have won all three of their games on the road this season, however, in their nine visits to Barcelona, they have always been defeated.

The Blaugrana, who might be without Magnus Jernemyr, who is recovering from a back injury, come into the match with the objective of remaining undefeated ahead of the international break.

Globalcaja Ciudad Encantada, a demanding team

Manager Zupo Equisoain, European and Asobal champion with San Antonio, has turned Globalcaja Ciudad Encantada into one of the best teams of the this edition of the Asobal League. The Cuenca-based side were undefeated up until last week, when they lost 24 to 26 to BM Aragón, but they remain undefeated on the road.

Equisoain has molded his players into a well-structured team, that employ a fast-paced style of play. The team’s goal is also well protected by two standout keepers, De Hita and Moyano.

The manager boasts men like Corzo, Sifré, Pérez de Inestrosa, Simonet and Sorrentino on the team, which makes Globalcaja Ciudad Encantada particularly fearsome even when they have to face the tough task of playing at the Palau.
