A great start, with two goals inside the first minute, gave Barça Alusport a valuable win over Triman Navarra and leaves them out on their own at the top of the table. Despite missing Igor, Saad and Jordi Torras, the team put in a great performance.

It needed just 44 seconds for Fernandão to set up the victory, especially important as it came
against a close rival, who had been enjoying an excellent run of wins themselves and was achieved
despite the injuries to a number of key players. The whole team performed, but Lozano was
Jordi Torras joins injury list
Jordi Torres pulled out before kick off with a thigh injury, but Lin was back after
injury and Carmona was able to call on three players from the reserves, including Tolra who put in
plenty of time on court. Fernandão’s great start set up the first half and Lozano soon
stamped his authority on the game, tackling back and creating danger up front. As well as
Fernandão’s touch up front and the great goal from Lin, Lozano was one of the best features
of the game.
Juanito and Cristian, especially the Navarran keeper, ensured there were no more goals in the
first half, though Roberto rattled the post for Triman and Wilde, Lin and Ari, as well as Lozano,
all had their chances for the hosts
Gem from Lin and reward for Lozano
Triman Navarra came out determined to get back into the game after the break and
Juanrin missed a great chance to get a goal back, but the next strike came from Barça, when Lin
received a pass from Fernandão to make it 3-0. Lozano helped to make it four as he charged down the
line to cross and Isi put through his own net.
Mimi finally got the visitors off the mark , as they threw everything at the hosts, but
immediately afterwards, Lin scored a spectacular fifth - already a candidate for goal of the
season- to douse any hopes the Navarrans might have had. Juanra pegged one back from a free kick
with three minutes left, but Lozano brilliantly set up Wilde for goal number six, before scoring
himself with a penalty to round off an excellent individual and team performance.
