BM Sinfín v FC Barcelona Lassa: 100th consecutive league win! (22-27)
Xavi Pascual's side earn century of victories on the bounce in a tough encounter
FC Barcelona Lassa handball wrote an incredible piece of history on Saturday evening after achieving their 100th consecutive win in the league, in a 27-22 victory over BM Sinfín.
The stage was set for Xavi Pascual’s men to achieve the unprecedented honour of racking up a century of wins and, even under such intense pressure, they were able to do so.
It was the home side who started the brighter of the two, racing to a 3-0 lead in the first five minutes, and maintaining their lead right for the first 25 of the game. However, Barça managed to get a grip of the game and, just before the break, got their noses ahead by one (12-13).
Sinfín were back level soon after the restart, but Pérez de Vargas ensured they would not go ahead with a save from seven metres. From then on, Barça managed to reestablish their lead and De Vargas continued his heroics in goal. The game ended 27-22 in Barça’s favour and, in doing so, achieved the incredible record of winning 100 straight games.
