Balonmamno Costa del Sol Málaga faces one of the most important weeks in the club’s history. The Malaga team is just one round away from entering the group stage of the EHF European League for the first time, something that would mean a new sporting milestone for a club that last season surprisingly won the Liga Guerreras Iberdrola.
After eliminating Larvik HK in the first round against all odds a few weeks ago, the Malaga “panthers” will now face København Håndbold, a regular team in the top European competitions and with a great continental career. Going to the group stage would be a milestone, not only for BM Costa del Sol Málaga, but also for Spanish women’s handball, since Only one team from the Guerreras League managed to enter this last phase of the competition in the last 10 years.
Carranque will host the first leg of the tie next Saturday the 11th at 6:00 p.m. The team hopes that its fans will come en masse to support Suso Gallardo’s players in such a special event. The tie seems complicated for Costa del Sol, København competes in one of the most competitive and powerful leagues in Europe, the Women’s Kvindeligaen. Suso Gallardo’s team will have the added difficulty of the second leg, They must resolve the tie in the Danish hell on Sunday the 19th at 6:00 p.m.
Although the players are aware of how complicated the duel is, They are confident and sure that they will fight for the challenge of entering the group stage. The previous tie against Larvik HK will serve as a precedent, as They were not favorites either and managed to advance consistently. Lack of experience will not be an excuse for the “panthers”. The objective is to advance to the round and leave the club’s reputation in style.
This is how they get to the game
Costa del Sol arrives at this event at a good time. It is true that they lost this weekend against Rocasa Gran Canaria, but after a spectacular month of October that has led to the Malacitans sThey are in fourth position in the league standings with eight wins in ten games. On the other hand, København Håndbold’s season is not so brilliant, The Danish team is tenth in its league and has only won two of the last five games.
For the last qualifying round, Costa del Sol Handball will not be able to count on Laura Sánchez and “Gabi” Pessoalong-term injuries. Esperanza López will be a doubt for the Malaga team after two games without playing, although everything indicates that Suso Gallardo will be able to count on her for the first leg this coming weekend.
