It was no easy win in the Palau Blaugrana even though Barça emerged victorious 4-1 over Caldes at home in the 23rd weekend of the OK League. Three valuable points in the battle for the league title and three points that keep Edu Castro's team on top.
Caldes made life difficult for the blaugranes early on and they took the lead through Miras on 14 minutes. Hélder Nunes levelled things up for Barça on 21 minutes.
The home side edged ahead before half time thanks to a strike from Joao but they did lose Sergi Llorca to injury before the break.
In the second half the blaugranes took charge of the contest and Pablo Álvarez added a third on 32 minutes. A free hit from Hélder Nunes made the final score 4-1 to Barça who now face Reus on 21 March at 8.00pm CET.
