Füchse Berlin 24-29 Barça Lassa: The Globe is blaugrana!
A stunning 7-0 streak just after the break sends the Catalans sailing towards a record fourth conquest of the world club championship in Doha
Super Globe champions! Barça Lassa have beaten Füchse Berlín 24-29 in a game where they got over a slow start to steamroll their way to the title in the second half.
The victory in Doha adds one more trophy to what was already a record haul of three world titles, and moves the Catalans further ahead of Füchse themselves and fellow Liga Asobal club Ciudad Real, who have claimed the honour twice each.
Barça first won the title in the 2013/14 season, and retained it the year after, and also won last year’s edition, and four of our players (Víctor Tomàs, Raúl Entrerríos, Cedric Sorhaindo and Aitor Ariño) have been in the team for each one of those finals.
For the five new signings (Casper Mortensen, Thiagus Petrus, Gilberto Duarte, Kevin Möller and Ludovic Fabregas) this was a new experience, as it was for Aron Pálmarsson, who joined the club last year, but after the third Super Globe had already been conquered.
7-0 streak seals it
The game itself was as tight as one would expect for such an occasion, but an incredible run of seven uncontested goals after the interval was what tipped things well and truly the way of the blaugrana.
Captain Víctor Tomás was simply outstanding in that streak, and at 22-15-there was never going to be a way back into it for the Germans.
With the Catalan and Spanish Super Cups already in the bag, that’s three pieces of silverware already for the handball team this season. And we’re still only in October!
