A great win for Barça as they reacquaint themselves with victory in a game pulsating contest with Vendrell. Goals from Joao (4), Pablo Álvarez (2), Bargalló and Matias Pascual were enough to hand Edu Castro's team the win.
An early blue card for Bargalló and a goal from Crespo saw Barça fail to get off to the best of starts in Vendrell. However, a hat trick from Joao put the blaugranes back in control at 3-1 before Bargalló and Helder Nunes missed great chances to extend that lead. Vendrell pulled one back but a goal from Pablo Álvarez saw Barça go off at half time with a 4-2 lead.
The intensity did not let up in the second half with Vendrell coming back into the game with a Manu Necchi strike to make it 4-3. Goals from Bargalló and Pablo Álvarez put a bit of daylight between the sides at 6-3 before Fernández made it 6-4.
Nevertheless, strikes from Matias Pascual and a fourth from Joao rounded off an excellent win for Edu Castro's team, their third of the current season in the OK league.
