A hard-fought victory (29-38)


Barça’s handball team won their away game against Teka Cantabria in the 6th matchday of the Asobal League. It was no easy task as the home side had done their homework well on the Barça squad.

Teka went into the game on the back of shaky patch. They finally kept their place in the Asobal league thanks to the resignation of Altea. Despite the problems of recovering a team that had been all but dismembered, Teka showed that they’re in the best handball league in Europe because of their quality.

Barça exploit the 9-metre line

Teka took the measure of Barça right from the start and for the first half hour the visitors couldn’t make their superiority count. Teka defended solidly and Barça could only take the lead from the 9-metre line. Even so, Teka enjoyed their own moments of dominance.

However, Barça took advantage of the occasional lapse in concentration to punish the home side on the counterattack. At the break, Barça led by two goals (16-18).

Barça take the reins

After the break, Teka fought their way back into contention thanks to Oualid Bien Amor, Brajkovic and Bauer but Barça reacted well to first maintain, and then increase, the lead (29-38).

Jerome injury blow

On the downside, Jerome Fernández picked up a right leg injury and limped off at the break, after scoring the 18th goal in the final minute of the first half. The French international will have a scan to see if he can be fit in time for Sunday’s game against Ademar in the Palau. Meanwhile, Rubén Garabaya made a brief reappearance after missing the second half of the game against Granollers also due to a right leg problem.
