The win was fully deserved as the Blaugrana dominated the match from the first minute.
After the hectic opening exchanges, Barça began to impose their natural game they quickly went ahead on the scoreboard. Playing with high energy and intensity, the Blagurana had opened up a five-point lead (13-18) by half-time.
