Andreu Plaza's team took the three points against ElPozo Murcia (2-1), but the Blaugranes suffered throughout this hard-fought encounter. Just 72 hours after the last game, Barça and ElPozo went toe to toe at a deafening Palau Blaugrana. Both goalkeepers, Juanjo and Espindola, made crucial saves in the opening minutes.
The suffocating pressure of the visitors' front line saw Andreu Plaza call for a saving timeout. Marcenio, Arthur, Adolfo and Sergio Lozano all went close before Adolfo opened the scoring.
Daniel, with an assist from Roger, made it 2-0 after half-time, however, within a minute Paradynski had cut short the celebrations of the home crowd. Indeed, Barça's fans spent the last seconds with their hearts in their mouths. Barça held on, and the team will travel to Peñíscola to end the year (Saturday, December 21 - 6.30 pm).
