ElPozo Murcia v FC Barcelona Lassa: Palau will have to provide the magic (3-2)

Andreu Plaza's side are unable to get their first point of the series and will have to win the next game in front of their own supporters to be in with a chance of making the final

FC Barcelona Lassa fell short in their first encounter against Murcia, losing 3-2 to ElPozo leaving them with the need to win their next game at the Palau Blaugrana to stay alive in the play-offs.

The hosts got off to a flyer when Pito scored inside four minutes, but the Barça response was almost instant as Adolfito made it 1-1 moments later.

Barça stopper Juanjo made a string of saves to keep the score level but was helpless to stop Miguelín's penalty for 2-1 on the stroke of half-time.

Álex, with a goal for Murcia at the start of the second half, made life even more complicated. Lozano hit a cracker to reduce the deficit to 3-2 just a minute later.

The defeat means Barça absolutely must win their next game on Wednesday 31 May at 9.30pm at the Palau Blaugrana.
