American Athletes in Action

  • Copa del Rey Tournament (Spain)
    • Drew Donlin plays circle runner and defense for Leon
    • Spain’s annual Copa Del Rey Tournament starts Friday and it’s an important tournament for Leon as it presents their best opportunity to qualify for next year’s European League. Spain has 1 Champions League slot which will likely go to Barcelona. 2nd and 3rd place in the Liga ASOBAL will then be awarded European League slots, but a string of defeats has dropped Leon to 8th place and it will be a tough climb back to 3rd place. Which is where the Copa Del Rey comes in. 2nd place (assuming a Barcelona title) will also secure a European League slot.
    • Leon (-1.5) vs Huesca (Friday, 1200 CET): Video Link (Quarterfinal)
      • Leon’s QF opponent on Friday is Huesca. The two sides met in league play with hosts Huesca winning 27-24
      • UPDATE: Leon beat Huesca 40-28
    • Leon vs Irun (-1.5) (Saturday, 1630 CET): Video Link (Semifinal) 
      • Irun beat Benidorm 28-27 and will be Leon’s Semifinal opponent. Irun is 2nd place in the Asobal league and beat Leon 33-27 in Leon on 3 February.
      • Assuming Barcelona beats Granollers in the other semifinal, this match is a one off contest for a guaranteed spot in the EHF European league.
      • UPDATE: Leon beat Irun 30-26 and thanks to Barcelona’s 32-22 victory over Granollers they have qualified for next year’s EHF European League
    • Leon vs Barcelona (-9.5) (Sunday, 1900 CET): Video Link (Final) 
      • Next up for Leon is mighty Barcelona. So far this season Barca is 21-0-0 in Asobal play and 14-0-0 in Champions League play. In fact their only loss this season was a 33-28 defeat to Kiel at the makeup 2020 Final Four and that was technically last season.
