Barça - Palma Futsal: Tough defeat to take (2-3)

The hosts mounted a comeback after going 0-3 down, but fell to their first defeat in the league

Barça's first defeat of the season came after losing 2-3 against Palma Futsal. Despite no clear chances in the opening exchanges and Barça dominating possession of the ball, it was Palma's Nunes who came closest after 11 minutes, hitting the post with a superb shot. Barça's response was immediate, but Ferrao could only find Sarmiento's gloves.

Two goals from Palma in three minutes

Palma quickly put their foot on the accelerator and scored two goals in three minutes. The first of them came as a result of Lolo's great individual work before Joao found the net with a shot from the front of the area.

At the start of the second half, Ferrao, Dyego and Adolfo all went close without success. Palma's Tomaz then increased the lead with a third from inside the area. With 10 minutes to play, Arthur pulled one back for Barça, and although Ferrao added a 38th minute second, it was too little, too late.
