FC Barcelona 2-0 Benfica: Through to the quarters

Late goals from Lucas Ordonez and Pau Bargalló secure a win that sends the roller hockey team into the European League last eight with two games to spare

FC Barcelona Lassa have come through a tricky test on Saturday to ensure a place in the quarter finals of the European League.

Edu Castro's side enjoyed most of the possession and most of the chances but it wasn’t until the last five minutes that Lucas Ordoñez finally broke the deadlock and Pau Bargalló sentenced the win.

And the main reason it took so long was some stunning goalkeeping from Benfica stopper Pedro Henriques.

Four wins from four games means Barça are the only side already guaranteed a place in the last eight, and just one point from their remaining two fixtures against Forte dei Marmi or Montreux will ensure they’ll be doing so as group winners.
