It wasn’t just a storm, it was a hurricane as Barça Lassa brushed aside one of their biggest rivals in the LNFS, Palma Futsal, by a staggering score of 8-1 to go top of the regular season table with 23 points.
Adolfo claimed a hat-trick, Ferrao got two goals and Esquerdinha, Lozano and Leo Santana got the others in the performance of the season so far..
Nobody could have predicted that the floodgates would open to such a dramatic extent judging by the cautious start to a game between two sides with a lot of respect for each other. It was 2-1 at the break, the Mallorcans pulling one back when playing with a rush goalie towards the end of the half.
But when Barça re-established a two-goal cushion, Parma again opted for the rush goalie, and this time it proved their undoing. Totally exposed at the back they were punished again and again by a home side that just couldn’t stop scoring.
There could have been no better way to prepare for the Champions League Élite Round at the Palau Blaugrana next weekend.
