Barša have won the League after beating PuigcerdÓ 5-2 in the second playoff game. Evgueny Semeriakĺs men came from two nil down to win with a hat-trick by Pablo Mu˝oz and two strikes by Jonas.


Barša picked up the League Champions title for 2008/09 in the second playoff game. Seven years after their last triumph they are once again the best side after finishing top in the regular season and winning the playoffs.

Initial lead

PuigcerdÓ were determined to put on the pressure to force a third game and immediately took the lead.

First skipper Salva Barnola beat Ander Alcaide while a minute later EchevarrÝa sent the travelling fans into rapture with their side’s second goal.

But Barša soon fought back and Pablo Mu˝oz made it 1-2 just three minutes later.

Chain reaction

The speed of the game helped the home side take control in the first third and dominate the second.

PuigcerdÓ wouldn’t take a backward step but Barša equalised after two minutes in the period when Swede Jonas Norberg smacked home the goal that made it 2-2.

Then came the third from Pablo Mu˝oz as he netted his second.

40-year-old veteran skipper Enrique Zapata then lifted the trophy with a tear in his eye and a big smile on his face.
