Barça are through to the Elite Round of the Champions League after a big win against Kazakh side Ayat with a hat-trick from Daniel, a brace from Adolfo and single goals from Joselito and Dídac.
It may have looked tight early on, but once the Catalans had struck the net, the goals started to flow, and four goals behind, Ayat were already using the rush goalie tactic before the half-time whistle had blown.
The more the opposition pushed forward, the more they were sting on the counter attack, and this win coupled with Tuesday’s victory over Russian outfit Tyumen means that Friday’s fixture against host Lithuanian club FK Vytis (6.00pm CEST) is a mere formality, and if Tyumen beat Vytis in the late Wednesday fixture, they would even have top spot secure already.
Ayat: Smolin, Valiullin, Kacher, Ryndin, Agapov, Gurov, Matheus Preá, Turegazin, Lopatyuk & H. Bolt.
Barça: Dídac, Marcenio, Daniel, Joselito, Ferrao, Dyego, Rivillos, Arthur, Roger, Boyis & Adolfo.
Goals: 0-1, Adolfo (min 6); 0-2, Daniel (min 11); 0-3, Joselito (min 15); 0-4, Daniel (min 17); 0-5, Daniel (min 28); 0-6, Dídac Plana (min 36); 0-7, Adolfo (min 40); 1-7, Ryndin (min 40).
