Barça Intersport will not be in Cologne. Xavi Pascual’s team, who fell to 29-23 in Denmark, could not achieve the desired Palau’s comeback, and could only sign an insufficient, 36-33 triumph remaining four goals short in the leg to make it to the Final Four. There is no room for any criticism towards Barça Intersport, which quickly reached a lead of three goals which, unfortunately, wasted before reaching the break, where it stands a cruel 17-17. In the second half, a partial of a 6-0 home side have allowed the dream come true, but it was already too late.
