FC Barcelona Lassa earned a hard-fought 3-2 win on the road against Citylift Girona to return to winning ways after three matches and to end the year on a positive note.
Pablo Álvarez opened the scoring for Barça after 13 minutes to give the team the confidence they so very much needed.
And things were about to get a whole lot better for the visitors as, in the next four minutes, two penalties would go in their favour. Both were converted by Lucas Ordoñez, giving Barça a precious 3-0 lead to protect with still plenty of the match to play.
The home side made a good battle of the match late on. Two goals from Girona in the closing stages had Barça fans biting their nails but the team held on for an invaluable win.
