In the second-half, Barça put their foot on the accelerator and within 10 minutes had increased the lead to 10 points (29-19). By the final whistle, the hosts had gone further ahead, finishing with a winning margin of 14. The next challenge will be the Champions League, against Montpellier, the current champions.
