Barça Lassa blazed their way to victory against BM Blendio Sinfín (43-19) in a wonderful display of everything that works for this team when they click. Xavi Pascual masterminded a defensive web that was near impossible to penetrate and after the first 30 minutes of play the game was already as good as over (20-8).
There was no easing of the intensity after the restart, and their visitors from Santander were left to suffer a further barrage of goals from the relentless blaugrana.
The game was preceded by the players parading the Catalan and Spanish Super Cup trophies, and most especially the record fourth Super Globe won midweek in Doha.
That’s seven wins in seven games in the Liga Asobal so far, leaving Barça outright leaders of the competition. Now there’s a short international break, and play resumes on Wednesday 31 October away to Quabit Guadalajara.
