Debut in the league for Carlos Ortega as Barça coach and a first win in the Asobal League thanks to the blaugranes' impressive performance away at BM Logroño La Rioja.
After claiming not one but two Super Cup titles in the last week, Barça began in style in the Palacio de Deportes de la Rioja. After an initial burst from the home side a Barça without the injured Ariño, N'Guessan and Dika Mem took control and at half time they led 18-14.
Keeper Gonzalo Pérez de Vargas was key in the opening half to the blaugranes going in at the break with a four goal advantage.
His form continued in the second half and De Vargas ended the game having made 23 saves from 42 shots. Barça took control of the encounter after the break with Ortega giving chances to young players Martí Soler, Artur Parera and Aleksander Cenic as the blaugranes closed out the win at 37-22.
