Gaby Cairo’s FC Barcelona want to clinch the OK Liga title this Monday. If the Catalans beat Calafell this evening, the match will be broadcast live on Esport3 and Teledeporte at 21.15, they will claim the OK Liga title that slipped away last season.

How FC Barcelona come into the match

Cairo’s men come into the match with sky-high morale. Despite the important absence of Sergi Panadero, the Catalans will have their captain back, Beto Borregán, who missed the game against Maçanet due to suspension. Barça are within touching distance of the title, a title that they won 13 consecutive times, before last year’s second-place finish. In the first half of the season, FC Barcelona played against Calafell and won by a 1-3 scoreline.

The rival

The team managed by the ex-Noia Freixenet player, Pere Varias, are an amalgam of veteran and young players. The ex-Azulgrana Marc Coy, one of the best players in the squad, could make the jump to one of the big teams of the league next year due to his standout performances this season. It goes without saying that Coy, only 24-years-old, has a lot of potential. Next to him on the court is the veteran and experienced Quim Pujades (32-years-old). Pujades has given consistency to Calafell in the team’s fight to avoid the relegation zone. Currently sitting in the 11th spot of the table, fourth from the bottom, Calafell enjoy a comfortable advantage over 12th-place Voltregà, who only have 16 points.

The Juvenil team, champions of Spain

The FC Barcelona roller hockey youth team continue to enjoy an exceptional run of good form. This weekend the team led by one of the first-team players, Marc Julià, thrashed Cerceda by 6-0 in the final of the Spanish Juvenil Championship.
