Edu Castro's side begin their OK Liga season in spectacular fashion
Six months since their last game in the competition, Barça showed on Saturday that they have not lost any of the magic. They put seven goals past Palafrugell, with João Rodrigues (4), Pablo Álvarez (2) and Helder Nunes all contributing to the task.
The Palau Blaugrana may have been empty, but that did not seem to do anything to perturb the players, and with a 3-0 lead at the interval, the second half was a mere formality, with Rodrigues the absolute hero of the day with his four goals. The defending champions clearly mean to carry on where they left off... Winning!.
