A “Champions” defence (28-22)

Verónica Díez

FC Barcelona Borges beat Ademar de León 28- 22 thanks in large part to some excellent defensive work and another fine performance from keeper Saric.

After a tentative start, Barca began to impose themselves on the game and although Ademar never gave up, they were always chasing the game.

5 goal flurry

Although Martins then put the vivitors two up, Barca soon took control and were 4-3 up on 10 minutes, a lead that they never again let go of.

Juanín García led a 5-0 torrent of goals to really hammer home their advantage and Xavi Pascual's men went in 13-10 up at the break.

Total dominance

Playing their best handball, with good teamwork, Barca simply played their opponents off the court.
