Barça Lassa won 2-6 in France against Dinan Quévert thanks to a hat-trick from Joao Rodrigues and goals from Alabart, Marc Gual and Pau Bargalló. Although the match was just the second of this season’s European League, it was an important victory because it leaves Barça at the top of the table, with six points, after Follonica’s win over Oliveirense (3-2). In fact, Barça’s next European League match will be on December 1, in Portugal, against Oliveirense.
It was the seventh time Barça have played against Dinan Quévert, and all of them have been wins. This edition began well for the visitors when Alabart put Barça ahead (0-1, min 8), and although the French team equalised shortly after on the counterattack via Pablo Gonzalez, Joao restored the lead within a minute 1-2 (min 15). Five minutes later Joao added another, assisted by Matias Pascual from behind the goal.
Toni Seró cut the deficit (2-3, min 27 ) but Marc Gual (2-4, min 32) and Pau Bargalló (2-5, min. 38) ended the match as a contest. There was still just enough time for Joao to grab his hat-trick goal and complete the scoring (2-6, min 39).
