On a difficult track, the visitors' persistence paid off
Before the match, Huesca honoured Víctor Tomàs after the Aragonese pivot announced this week that he would shortly finish his career. The game was very even in the opening exchanges (5-5, 8th minute), and the Barça players, despite being erratic in attack, were almost always ahead on the scoreboard. However, they couldn't dominate for long enough, and so at 11-11, Xavi Pascual asked for timeouts.
From then on, the visitors improved to go to in half-time 13-16. A hectic second half - although Huesca were never ahead - saw more of the same, with Barça doing just enough on a difficult track to take the spoils.
