Not only have Barça had to play three handball matches in three days, but they won them all! Aalborg on Thursday, Benidorm on Friday and now Dicsa Modular Cisne of Pontevedra 43-27, with N'Guessan, Ludovic Fabregas and Janc all contributing six goals to the cause.
With some fans allowed into the Pabellón Municipal dos Deportes the home side were on top for the first quarter of an hour. Was the 3-game spree too much even for the all-conquering Catalans?
But by the break, Barça had gone seven points ahead, with Gonzálo Pérez de Vargas his usual brilliant self in goal, and eventually won the game by 15, the only negative being a thigh injury sustained by Cédric Sorhaindo.
So still unbeaten at home and in Europe, Barça now take a break for ten days of international matches
