The Palau Blaugrana were treated to a wonderful game of roller hockey on Tuesday evening. Pau Bargalló quickly opened the scoring against Calafell, but despite sustained pressure it wasn't until the 33rd minute when a João Rodrigues penalty made it 2-0 to the hosts. Pablo Álvarez quickly added another and it looked like the hosts would walk away with a big win.
However, within three minutes, the visitors were back to within one goal as first Sergi Torné (min. 40) and then Guido Pellizzari found the net. Barça's Pau Bargalló (min. 45) took the hosts further ahead but Arnau Xaus (min. 47) kept things interesting. It took a late João Rodrigues double to finally make the game safe. Barça's next rival will be Lleida's Lista Blava (Sunday, November 24, 12.00pm CET)
