Spectacular hockey, especially after the break, brings victory in one of the sport's classic fixtures
Barça were spectacular on Sunday at the Palau against Reus. It was a tight game until the first goal was scored, and then the floodgates opened. Matias Pascual scored twice and there was one each for Pablo Álvarez, Nil Roca, João Rodrigues, Helder Nunes and Bargalló in an impressive seven-goal rout of one of the sport’s biggest clubs.
Amidst a festive atmosphere, with the team posing for its official photo before the game, Edu Castro’s side hang onto top spot in the OK Liga. Next up is a trip to Voltregà on Saturday 1 February.
