ELF: Munich Ravens travel to Barcelona to face electric Barcelona Dragons

The 1-1 Munich Ravens will head west to face the 2-1 Barcelona Dragons on Saturday in week four of the European League of Football

After taking their first loss to the undefeated Raiders Tirol last week, the Dragons will be eager to redeem themselves and return to winning ways.

Connor Miller, who is currently the only ELF passer to surpass 1,000 yards through the air, has been elite through the first three weeks, racking up a league-leading 10 passing touchdowns.

With Miller at the wheel, the Dragons’ offense is certainly one of the most entertaining to watch, with a stacked receiving corps headlined by big-bodied wideout Theo Landström. The young Swedish talent sits in the top three for receiving yards (381) and holds the title of top scorer (6), while his American teammate Josh Johnston has recorded 302 yards and a touchdown.

Their defense, on the other hand, can’t tell the same success story. Barcelona have conceded more points than any other team with a winning record, but their electric offensive unit has been able to bail them out as they have in previous years.

The Ravens have had a similar story over the franchise’s first two games. After taking a loss in a high-scoring shootout against the Raiders, they traveled to Switzerland where they defeated the newly-formed Helvetic Guards 39-10 in yet another high-scorer. The win saw the Guards take an early lead, but it didn’t last long. After heading into halftime with the Ravens up 13-10, they seemingly flipped a switch; Munich scored 26 unanswered points and went on to a comfortable victory.

Markell Castle was the clear difference-maker, going off for a ridiculous 242 yards and four touchdowns.

After losing American DB Darius Robinson to injury, the Ravens have signed 2x ELF All-Star Justin Rogers, who is sure to make an impact as soon as he steps on the field.

Despite this, both teams have proven to be very strong offensively, so this matchup is sure to be a high scoring one.
