Pablo Álvarez scored two late goals to make it 5-2 / GERMÁN PARGA-FCB

The new European champions were offered a guard of honour by Noia as they entered the court and then got off to a flying start in the match with a goal from Reinaldo Garcia after just 3 minutes. They continued to dominate, but the visitors pulled level through Aleix Esteller. Barça went ahead again, this time from a free converted by Marc Torra only for Noia to level things at 2-2, which how things stood at the break.

After the restart, visiting keeper Luis Gil kept Barça at bay with some fine saves but was finally beaten by a perfectly executed Raül Marín penalty. Noia could have equalised for the third time when they were awarded penalty of their own, but keeper Egurrola delighted the Palau by saving it with his head. The home side finished off the job in the closing minutes, with Pablo Álvarez converting a free and, just thirty seconds later, the Argentinian scored again to set up the definitive 5-2.

A fine day ended with the Palau Blaugrana on its feet for the presentation of the OK Liga trophy by FC Barcelona director Ramon Vidal-Abarca and FEP representative Carlos Feriche. Captain Aitor Egurrola held the trophy aloft, the European League trophy was produced as well, and celebrations ensued.
