Barça have lost at Industrias in the cup quarter finals. Ximbinha’s goal was neutralised by a Drahovsky brace and another from Petry and the magical run of 15 games without defeat has come to an end. It was the first time since 2016 that the threepeating champions had lost a game in this competition.
It was an enticing encounter in which both sides had chances to claim a place in the Final Four, but once the home side had scored three it was a mountain too far for Barça, who played a rush goalie in the hope of a late comeback.
All they can do now is fight to get their morale back as attention switches back to Saturday and a 5.00pm CET league fixture against imbee Cartagena.
