The Guardés crashes against Antalya and loses the European Cup

Antalya Konyaalti deprived Mecalia Atlético Guardés (33-20) of winning the Women’s Handball European Cup after lifting the six-goal disadvantage that he brought from Galician lands on his court, in the second leg of the European Cup that he left sentenced in the first half with a defense that bordered on perfection.

The Galician team did not enter the game well, and I pay for it. Antalya Konyaalti struck with a 4-1 start that gave them a lot of confidence, as well as increasing the doubts of Atlético Guardés, fragile in defense and very erratic in attack.

The Portuguese Ana Seabra called a time-out to reassure her players, and her team threatened to wake up with a 0-2 run. It was a mirage. The turnovers multiplied, as well as the errors in six meters. Too many gifts for the Turkish team, which, halfway through the first half, had already equalized the tie (11-5).

As the minutes passed, Atlético Guardés improved in defense. He increased his intensity in the central zone, and Sanja Premovic and Alena Ikhneva no longer scored so easily. But his problem was in attack. Antalya’s 6-0 defense was an insurmountable wall, and the Turkish team grew to nine goals at halftime (16-7). Antalya had scored 17 goals in A Sangriña, and in the first 30 minutes of the first half they scored just one less. Too many for the European aspirations of Atlético Guardés, a team used to living off their defensive work.

The outlook did not improve in the second half. The Turkish goalkeeper Sevilay Imamoglu continued plugged in (50 percent saves in the 43rd minute) and the first line of Birol Ünsal in attack easily destroyed the Galician defense to shoot even more in the mail (23-12, min.45).
