The Spanish Cup tournament that is being played in La Rijoa awarded the reigning champions Barça Alusport with mouth-watering semi-final matchup. The Catalans will play against Inter Movistar this Saturday. The matchup pits the two favourites of the tournament, especially after the way Caja Segovia and El Pozo Murcia were dispatched, respectively, in the previous round.

Third matchup

Barça Alusport comes into the match with a fully-fit squad two days after seeing off Caja Segovia in a hard-fought quarter-final match. Lozano (2) and Saad proved decisive in the quarter-final tie. The team led by Marc Carmona is showing superb consistency in all the competitions they’re playing in (leaders in the Liga and qualified for the Final Four of the UEFA Futsal Cup).

However, Inter Movistar is the opponent that have given the Catalan side the most trouble so far this season. In fact, Inter is the only team to have beaten Barça in an official match. It was in the Spanish Super Cup (3-2), at the beginning of the season. In the Liga, managed a one-all draw in Alcalá.

The men led by Chema Jiménez are enjoying high dose of morale after their exhibition in the quarter-finals against El Pozo (5-0). With this result they showed that they aren’t rueing the absence of Schumacher, one of their star players.
