Hira CC Sabadell square off against Catalunya CC in the penultimate group-stage game of the ongoing ECS T10 Barcelona 2020 tournament. Hira CC Sabadell are second from bottom in their group while Catalunya CC, who are second, are the only unbeaten team in the ECS this season.
Hira CC Sabadell have had a poor run in the ECS this season. They have won just one game, which was against the bottom-placed Gracia CC. Almost all of their defeats have been by heavy margins. Not surprisingly, they are not in the race for the ECS semi-finals.
Meanwhile, Catalunya CC have a lot to play for. They have won five games in a row but haven't yet qualified for the semi-finals. A win in this game will ensure them a place in the knockouts, otherwise their final game against the table-toppers Falco CC will become a do-or-die match.
There is no doubt that Catalunya CC are the favourites against an out-of-form Hira CC Sabadell.
