Voltregà 4-5 Barça: Brave fightback

Despite trailing 3-0, the blaugrana come home with the first away win of the season

Barça pulled out all the stops to battle back from what seemed an unsurmountable lead for Voltregà and take the full set of points thanked to a total turnaround in the second half.

Barça had gone all out in the attack from the start, but couldn't scored and were instead stunned twice in a minute and then conceded a controversial third shortly before the interval.

The home side had already shown in the Continental Cup that they are a force to be reckoned with but all the same Barça did not deserve to be trailing by such a wide margin. Hope was restored when Marc Grau slammed in from long range just before the break, and then they had a potential second disallowed. Voltrega were leading, but Barça had issued a severe warning.

Indeed, a fabulous goal from Pau Bargalló was followed by a second for Grau and Barça were back level. Joao Rodrigues then scored from the penalty spot and the same man had a fifth that had Barça two goals up in a game that, just moments before, they looked likely to lose.

It was a remarkable turnaround, and even the penalty converted by the home side did nothing to prevent Barça from collecting a thoroughly well-earned victory.
