A day when the ball just refused to go in means that the teams are all square going into two potentially decisive games at the Palau Blaugrana
FC Barcelona Lassa are coming back to the Palau Blaugrana with the league final series tied after losing 6-1 at Movistar Inter. Despite the reverse, the Catalans are still on good course for the title, and two wins in back-to-back games on their home court would bring them the trophy. Game three in the best-of-five series is this Thursday at 9.30pm CET.
And the heavy loss is not a fair reflection of true events on Saturday afternoon. Barça had plenty of chances, but it was one of those days when the ball just didn’t want to go in. A second half penalty by Dyego on Rivillos proved decisive, and Ferrao’s late goal served for nothing, other than positioning himself as top scorer in the competition with 35 goals.
