The season got off to a fine start / GERMÁN PARGA-FCB

The season began with Barça winning the Catalan Super Cup against Fraikin Granollers at the Juan Carlos Navarro in Sant Feliu de Llobregat.

The semi-final produced a routine win over BM La Roca (27-45), and then the deciding game ended in a clear 37-22 win for Barça, although it wasn’t as easy to break down Granollers as the scoreline suggests. Xavi Pascual imposed their powerful defending and pace, especially in the second half, to win the first of seven titles this season.
