Barça Sorli Discau v Reus 2

Only a win would be enough to keep Barça Sorli Discau’s chances alive in the OK Liga, but it was the home side that opened the scoring before Jordi Adroher equalised. Borregán then put FCB ahead before a second from Marín confirmed the draw.

Frenetic pace

The game got off to a hectic start, with both goalkeepers being called upon early, to the extent that both coaches made quick changes. But it was the excellent shot from Raül Marín who put Reus ahead with a tremendous goal, which caused tension on the court and cards from the referee. The rest of the half saw some excellent play from FCB, but they weren’t rewarded with a goal until seconds before half time, when Adroher, immediately after a timeout, finally beat Reus keeper Guillem Trabal.

Barça possession

In the second half, Reus seemed keener on playing the waiting game, which handed Barcelona a free reign in the centre of the court. Chance after chance fell to the forwards, and an FCB goal looked inevitable, and finally came though Alberto Borregán with a powerful long shot. However, Barcelona’s joy was short-lived, in the very next play, Marín added his second to bring things back level.

The game ended in gripping fashion, with both keepers producing key saves, and Barça dangerously poised on nine fouls. And so it ended, 2-2, a score that ends Barcelona’s title hopes, they are now six points adrift of league leaders Reus.
