Barça Lassa 2–3 ElPozo Murcia: Forced to win in Murcia

Andreu Plaza's side have lost the second game of the final series against ElPozo, in a match where Fernando's goal was decisive in overtime

Andreu Plaza's side, in a very intense match, lost against ElPozo in the Palau (2-3), and will have to travel to Murcia with the obligation to win at least one of the two remaining matches.

In spite of Ferrao's early goal, Andresito and Darío handed ElPozo the advantage, before Lozano forced extra time. Fernando decided the result with a 43rd minute winner. 

ElPozo demand Barça's maximum effort

It was not an easy match for Barça, with ElPozo pressing more and better than in the first game, which was played last Saturday at the Palau (7-2). The Murcians, who didn't want to head home with a 2-0 against them, demanded Andreu Plaza's staff played to their maximum. 

Ferrao opened the scoring (1-0, min 8), and in fact, the Catalans should've been able to extend their lead. However, Diego Giustozzi's men didn't surrender and Andresito took advantage (1-1, min 17). Darío, in a scuffle that ended at the bottom of the net, handed the visitors the advantage (1-2, min 34).

The euphoria is unleashed 

Forty seconds from the end, Lozano sent the Palau crazy with the equalising goal. In those latter stages all of Ferrao, Léo Santana, Esquerdinha and Joselito had chances but couldn't beat the excellent Fede. The result of extra time wasn't expected and a goal by Fernando ended up being decisive (2-3, min 43).
