Barça Lassa weren't able to win on their visit to Veszprém (29-26), a duel in which the locals deployed a solid defence to make life difficult for the Blaugranes.
Xavi Pascual's side struggled to get the better of an aggressive Veszprem defence, and within a few minutes of the opening whistle, the hosts were up on the scoreboard. The Catalans, however, didn't surrender and, thanks to a goal by Aleix Gómez, went into the break level (15-15).
Veszprém scored three goals at the beginning of the second half (18-15) but once again Barça Lassa's resolve got them back into the encounter (19-18, min 40). They were even able to equalise (22-22) when there were 15 minutes left, but in the final stretch, the hosts' defence came to the fore again, allowing their attackers to win them the match.
