ASOBAL (Round 29): Barcelona suffers first season defeat at the hands of Naturhouse La Rioja

FC Barcelona were unable to repeat the success of Ciudad Real few years ago when they went undefeated the whole season. Naturhouse La Rioja had huge motivation for this game – the third place is at stake – and with the superb victory over Barcelona 33:31, La Rioja are now two points ahead of Ademar Leon with Ademar Leon playing tomorrow against Atletico Madrid, and after this there is only one round left. Naturhouse La Rioja has undoubtedly had a great season, and this victory comes at the right time in the fight for the third place.

Morrazo Cangas with last-seconds goal take 25:24 win over Valladolid, which probably ensures them the stay in the ASOBAL next year.

Scores: Puerto Sagunto 25:20 Villa Aranda, La Rioja 33:31 Barcelona, BM Cangas 25:24 Valladolid
