After the euphoria of the Cup, Barça Lassa visited the Palma Futsal track on Saturday but couldn't overcome the Majorcans who are very strong at home. Despite the defeat, good news came in the form of Esquerdinha's return to the court after his injury, though he wasn't able to finish the game after being sent off.
The Mallorcans got on the scoreboard in only the second minute, thanks to a goal from Eloi Rojas, but as the game evolved Barça Lassa were more effective and Roger equalised after a great move and assist from Dyego (1-1, min 13).
Unfortunately, in the next attack, Sergi Lozano turned Lolo's cross into his own goal (2-1, min 14), and that gave the hosts a lot of confidence enabling them to play with much more intensity.
The visitors couldn't find their rhythm at the start of the second half, and any comeback was made even more difficult when Esquerdinha, who had returned to the track after some months out, was sent off in the 34th minute. In the subsequent play, Eloy Rojas scored the third (3-1, min 34 ).
Andreu Plaza reacted and chose to play with the goalkeeper-player, and in the first attack with five outfield Arthur reduced the deficit (3-2, min 34). Barça Lassa took advantage to keep creating chances, but, ultimately, came up short.
