That defeat of the Cabanas team was their only defeat in the UPNA Pavilion in two years. Portland have “taken revenge” and they are still in the race for the third place in the Asobal League, which means CL qualification as well.

The Swedish international goalkeeper, Tomas Svensson, is the top player of Portland right now. Svensson had four incredible games in the last two weeks and he is key player of San Antonio. The fans of Ademar, Flensburg, Zagreb or Antequera could talk about the saves of the veteran goalkeeper…
