Barça Lassa have won their second consecutive game in the Elite Round of the UEFA Futsal Cup and are within a touching distance of qualification for the Final Four. Ferrao, Adolfo and Joselito were on target against a stubborn Ekonomac of Serbia, who put up plenty of resistance and proved tough to crack, with Paco Sedano quite outstanding with two stunning saves.

After putting six goals past ZVV 't Knooppunt of Holland, the Catalans will now face host nation Pescara of Italy in the final game, where a draw would be enough to secure passage to the final round.

But this was no simple victory, and it was the Serbs who took the lead through Saiotti after just 25 seconds. And although Barça cancelled out that lead with two goals, Ekonomac would pull back square before Joselito clinched the three points with six minutes to play

They now have a day off before taking on Pescara on Saturday at 8.30pm CET.
