Barça Alusport made up for last week’s match against Talavera by claiming victory in a hard-fought Catalan derby. The first half was especially difficult against a Marfil Santa Coloma side that never backed down. However, two goals from Igor, who was give the medical clearance to play, in the first half and Wilde gave Barça the advantage before the half. In the second half, the team led by Marc Carmona secured the win with three more goals from Torras, Wilde and Lozano. Gabriel and Cristian both enjoyed a lot of playing time against Coloma.

With this victory, which allows Barça Alusport to maintain the distance with leaders ElPozo Murcia who also won their games (9-1 against Triman Navarra), the team can look to their upcoming appearance in the UEFA Final Four with confidence.

Amazing Igor

Barça Alusport took the initiative from the starting whistle. Lin came close to scoring the first goal of the night with a shot that hit the crossbar after three minutes, five minutes later, Igor fired his team ahead after a good play with Javi Rodríguez. Marfil Santa Coloma didn’t give up as they also went on the attack at the Palau Blaugrana. Because of the visiting side’s attitude, Barça were not comfortable throughout much of the first half. Igor appeared on the scene again with an individual play that could have been the 2-0 for Barça.

Seconds from the break, however, the second goal was scored. With 47 seconds to go, Wilde, after a brilliant give and go with Ari, made it 2-0 for his team. The goal shocked the visiting side, who had played an amazing first half. Against this Barça Alusport, however, it simply isn’t enough.

Absolute superiority

In the second half the difference between the two sides was painfully evident. A physically fresh Barça Alusport team pinned Coloma back into their own half. Rafa cleared what would have been a goal off the goal line on 27 minutes. The play ended in a corner, which allowed Torras to make it 3-0 after a great assist from Igor. The goal completely deflated the visiting side. Wilde and Lozano quickly added two more goals to Barça’s tally.

In the dying minutes of the match, Carmona brought on Eric Martel and the keeper Cristian, who along with Igor and Gabriel, missed Barça’s recent matches due to injury.
