FC Barcelona Lassa handball earned a commanding victory over Silkeborg to remain top of Group A of the VELUX EHF Champions League (34-19) on Sunday evening.
The match began at an intense pace, with Bredsdorff-Larsen’s side taking a 1-3 lead within the first five minutes. It seemed to give Barça the wake-up call they needed, as the hosts turned the game around convincingly to go into the break 18-10 ahead.
Lasse Andersson ended the first period with five goals to his name, in what was a terrific display from the Danish star.
Barça also had keeper Pérez de Vargas to thank for some important stops at the start of the second half, including a penalty. With Silkeborg without a goalie of their own, Víctor Tomás and Viran Morros scored from the halfway line to give the team a 13-goal lead.
