LAST MEETING
HC Meshkov Brest 21-29 Barca Lassa

THE LOWDOWN

BARCA LASSA

  • Barca Lassa are coming off the back of a 42-36 win over PGE Vive Kielce in Poland which gives them a better head-to-head over the Polish side who are just four behind Barca - who sit atop Group A in the EHF Champions League.
  • The Spanish side can extend their winning streak to nine games, which would be their second best ever, just three games fewer than their record of 12, between 2011 and 2012.
  • Barça’s left-back Brito Duarte had his best game of the season against Kielce as he scored nine goals, while top-scorer Casper Mortensen scored nine as well which brought his season tally up to 52.

HC MESHKOV BREST

  • HC Meshkov Brest last time out drew a thriller 31-31 with Macedonian side HC Vardar, as Vardar scored an equaliser with seven seconds to spare, which saw Meshkov remain in sixth place in Group A with five points.
  • The draw means the Belarussian side are on a seven-game winless streak, and are tied with Kristianstad for sixth place in the group.
  • Right wing Darko Djukic has been in good form lately as he’s scored 12 goals in his last three games, but Meshkov Brest will be needing more goals from other areas of the pitch as they are the lowest scorers in Group A.

THE PREDICTION

Barça’s attack has been unstoppable this season, scoring 310 goals in nine games, which is an average of 34.4 goals per game and means that they have a competition-best goal difference of 59. As Meshkov Brest have been fairly unsuccessful in stopping opponents from scoring, Barca should be able to extend their winning run to nine games.
