Five goals scored by Aleix Gómez helped the Blaugrana to go into the break with a comfortable advantage (13-21, min 30). It was a difference that proved to be important, because after half-time Barça could only score one goal in 10 minutes, and eight in 23 minutes (24-29).
At this point the visitors were grateful for Möller's saves, which prevented the locals turning the deficit around.
