FC Barcelona put in an excellent performance away at Bayern Munich to overcome Svetislav Petic's side in the Euroleague. Xavi Pascual's team scored a record 60 points in the first half, 38 of which came in the second quarter, another blaugrana record.
The blaugranes put in an excellent first half, composed in defence and effective in attack. They went point for point with Pesic's team in the first quarter with an 'alley-oop' from Satoransky a particular highlight after a great assist from Doellman. That score gave Barça a 14-22 lead before Bayern hit back to end the first quarter 17-22.
In the second quarter the blaugranes took control, above all from the three point line. Nachbar, Lampe and then Navarro all showed their skills from distance as Xavi Pascual's side stretched their advantage to a huge 24 points. At half time they led 39-61 with an impressive 38 points in the second quarter.
Three point party continues
Despite their comfortable lead Barça did not let up in the second half and Deshaun Thomas' triple three pointers gave the visitors a 27 point lead. Bayern did not throw in the towel and 11 points from John Bryant in the second half prevented an overwhelming win for Xavi Pascual's team. Barça racked up the points in the final quarter in search of the century but time ran out as they ended with a 77-99 victory to record their sixth consecutive win in Europe.
