The blaugranes pull off important win to stay in touch with leaders in the league table
Hard fought victory for the blaugranes in Bell-lloc d'Urgell with a 5-4 win against Lleida in a game that could have gone either way. A hat-trick from João and goals from Pablo Álvares and Helder Nunes handed Edu Castro's team the win.
Oriol Vives put the home side ahead early in the game before João levelled things up after 11 minutes. Barça took a 2-1 lead into the break thanks to Pablo Álvarez's goal with Sergi Llorca returning after injury for his first appearance of the season.
In the second half Helder Nunes extended Barça's lead only for Folguera to pull one back for Lleida. Nevertheless, a second for João and then his hat trick placed the blaugranes firmly in control. Late goals from Tomás and then Vives saw Lleida back in the contest but the visitors used their experience to close out the win and remain in second place in the league table behind leaders Liceo.
