Barça Lassa 3-3 ElPozo Murcia: Honours even at the Palau
On the evening that the Palau paid tribute to Paco Sedano, the sides second and third in the table share the points after the visitors equalise in the dying seconds

The points were shared on Saturday night at the Palau Blaugrana as Barça Lassa and ElPozo Murcia tied 3-3 after the visiting side pulled level just one minute from the end.
It was a frustrating climax to a vibrant match that was followed by an emotional ceremony in honour of goalkeeper Paco Sedano, whose number 28 shirt is to be retired and hung on the pavilion wall – the first time such an honour has been bestowed on a futsal player.
Esquerdinha had put Barça ahead after 11 minutes, and extended the leads on 24, and although the Murcians pulled one back, when Dyego made it 3-1 it looked like the 4,000 plus crowd were going to go home happy.
But a fine set piece and some very insistent play towards the end eventually paid off for ElPozo. The result means Palma Futsal go two points clear at the table on 18 points, with the two teams that met this evening staring over their shoulders on 16 each.
