Category: Goalball

What an exciting Goalball European B has been played in Centro de Desportos e Congressos de Matosinhos, in Portugal! It only takes a quick glance at the standings in both the men’s and women’s groups to see how unexpected this final day for the stage group can be.

In group A, Portugal depends on itself to guarantee first place, despite being defeated by Denmark, which put the host squad on the same points as Finland but with a better goal difference. Check out the results from Day 3, the standings, and which matches are scheduled for the final stage before the finals:

In group B, Greece is taking the lead by some margin, and with only one match left to play, it may not lose its status. Great Britain and Israel are in a league of their own, while Spain and Sweden are playing their fate on Euro B. The victorious one will remain in the current division, and the other one will go to Euro C.

Here are the numbers:

Group B

In the women’s competition, with the round robin system, this Thursday will not determine anything, although it can give a clearer idea of what may come after that. Finland and Ukraine have shown some differences among their opponents, but there can be no promises made. After all, Portugal has defeated Finland, most recently in the FEDC International Goalball Tournament in Madrid, so nothing can be granted.
