The FC Barcelona handball team won their 58th consecutive league game in Gijón, giving Xavi Pascual's team a 34:25 victory in a game that did not feature top players Víctor Tomás, Karabatic or Sigurdsson. Aitor Ariño had a game-high seven goals in a clash that Barça dominated from start to finish. Barça were up 11:7 after 15 minutes and then, after Gijón came to within two goals, extended the lead to 18:14 at the half. A solid defensive effort after the break allowed the Catalans to run it 23:15, although a fine effort by Gijón goalkeeper Pejcinovic kept it from getting out of hand. With Barça up ten at 27:17 after 43 minutes, Xavi Pascual found minutes for youngsters Beto Miralles and Víctor Sáez before wrapping up their 58th straight.
