Caldes - Barça Lassa: A win at a difficult venue (0-4)
Edu Castro's side earned their victory thanks to a hat-trick from Pablo Álvarez and a goal by João Rodrigues
Edu Castro's men worked hard to get their win (0-4) at Caldes, a notoriously difficult place to go. A hat-trick by Pablo Álvarez and a goal by João Rodrigues gave the victory to the Blaugrana.
The game started with both teams looking to attack, but a lack of precision and some great goalkeeping kept things goalless.
Pablo Álvarez finally opened the scoring (0-1, min 10), and though the Blaugrana had plenty more opportunities, it would take until the 32nd minute for the second goal to arrive, again through Álvarez.
Against some fierce home pressure at the beginning of the second half, Barça managed to keep dominating, and that allowed João Rodrigues to extend the score further (0-3, min 38).
With Caldes still pushing hard, Álvarez’s third goal (0-4, min 48) was the icing on the cake, the player ensuring he remains top scorer in the competition with 27.
