Although they sprung a huge surprise two years ago, the miracle didn’t repeat itself and the handball reserves went out of the cup at the round of 32 stage to Naturhouse La Rioja, despite being supported from the stands at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper by Xavi Pascual, Gonzalo Pérez de Vargas, David Barrufet and other members of the section.

Against a side that’s playing in the Champions League, the Barça youngsters managed to hold their own in impressive fashion. They were only trailing by three at 19-22 and there is no shame in being beaten by a seven-point margin by one of the strongest teams in Europe.
