A convincing but demanding win for Barça away to PAS Alcoy (0-4). João Rodrigues and Pau Bargalló both scoring braces for the blaugranes to come away with a victory after two draws in their previous visits.

Early score for Barça

PAS Alcoy are one of the best sides in the league when playing at home, and Edu Castro's side ensured they remained in possession for as long as possible during the match. The first goal came after 8 minutes, Barroso picking up an error from Gonzalo Pérez, before passing to goalscorer João Rodrigues (0-1).

The side from Alicante had a good chance to equalise on 25 minutes, Formatjé and Verdú combining to score, but the referees decided it hadn't fully crossed the line despite the home side's protestations. Just one goal in it at the break.

Lead extended to ensure win

No change after the restart, Barça dominating possession and controlling the game, and five minutes in, Pau Bargalló made the most of a mix up between Formatjé and Sergi Canet to score a powerful shot from halfway inside the opponent's half to make it 0-2.

Eight minutes later Marc Grau and Pau Bargalló combined for Barça's third, the latter firing past Marc Grau in the Alcoi goal virtually from the same spot as his previous effort (0-3). Still time for another goal as João Rodrigues finished some great play by Bargalló (0-4) to score his 29th in the OK Liga with a minute to go and confirm Alcoi's defeat.

Next up for Barça, Noia Freixenet at the Palau Blaugrana on Monday 5 February (8.30pm).
