London Blitz will travel to Belgrade in July as top seeds for the IFAF European Champions League semi-finals after crushing Spanish side Osos Rivas 

The Finsbury Park club were totally dominant in Madrid, with both quarterbacks throwing touchdown passes and all five of their running backs who touched the ball scoring.

Josh Adamson twice found Jack Daley in the end zone, while Joe Thompson hit Jasper Van Dooren in stride for a 47-yard scoring connection.

Defensively Blitz blanketed the Osos receivers, with Sam Joseph in outstanding form as he jumped a screen route and went over the top of the wide receiver for an interception.

The Osos Rivas running game was non-existent as Blitz sacked the quarterback on five occasions, with a pair for Marcus Thouant and one each for Fab Garguilo, Charlie Cohen, and Jordan Jones.

Blitz are back in domestic action on Sunday, when they host Bristol Aztecs (2.30pm).
