Barça Alusport are now 5-0 in the competition after overcoming a decent Umacon Zaragoza side that managed to stay in contention until Barcelona managed to score three goals in an amazing 47 seconds.

Candid start

The fans heartedly welcomed Carlos Muñoz, who returned to the Palau, now playing for a side that despite today’s result, is still one of the candidates for a playoff spot. But once the game was under way, it took just two minutes for Saad Assís to supply Dídac with the ball to make it 1-0 from long range. The fans were still celebrating when Wilde almost made it two.

Barça was commanding the game, but Joan Linares then showed great opportunism scoring on an empty net, and drew his side level with the home team.

Flash of brilliance

It was end to end football with the scoreboard reflecting the 1-1 draw, but after missing a few more chances, Wilde finally found the target with a spectacular overhead kick. It was such a fantastic goal that almost everybody was still admiring the replay when Sergio Lozano made it 3-1.

Marc Carmona’s side was in extraordinary form, and anybody could catch their breath, Wilde found the net again. Three goals in just 47 seconds of actual play meant that Barcelona led 4-1 and had the game totally under control.

There was still time for one more before the break, this time from Fernandão, with a trademark goal from a narrow angle, bringing the first half to the perfect end.

Second half a formality

The second half was a far less frantic affair. Barça had already done their job and concentrated on wearing down the clock. Umacon Zaragoza also lost spark as it became more and more obvious that there was no way to claw out a tie or victory. Although both sides did have a few chances to add to the score, there were no further goals, and FCB continue with their one hundred per cent record in the competition.
