FC Barcelona Lassa go back to the top of the CERH European League Group B after coming from behind to defeat Portuguese side FC Porto at the Palau Blaugrana (3-1).

The night certainly did not start as Barça would have wanted, as the visitors took an early lead through Gonçalo Alves after just three minutes.

And it would have been 2-0 after nine minutes had it not been for two excellent saves from Aitor Egurrola to deny Reinaldo Garcia and Hélder Nunes.

The game changed for Barça when Matías Pascual pulled things level almost immediately after that double save.

Barça came out more purposeful in the second period and eventually went in front through Bargalló on 34 minutes. And the win was secured four minutes later through Ordoñez, giving Barça the leadership of Group B once again, leapfrogging their Portuguese counterparts.
