Victory in Santander to equal the record

GO Fit Sinfín - FC Barcelona Lassa 28:37 (15:19)

The FC Barcelona Lassa handball side continue racking up the records. In week 6 of the Asobal League Xavi Pascual's side have recorded another victory, their 67th in a row thereby equalling the league record previously held by Ciudad Real. The new landmark was reached with a 37:28 win over GO Fit Sínfin from Santander. Barça, as is customary, were focused right from the very start and by the 9th minute the blaugranes were 8:4 ahead.

By the 17th minute the visitors were 14:9 and on top to such an extent that GO Fit were forced to call a time out. The appearance of Jicha, Entrerrios and Aleix Gómez helped Xavi Pascual's team to a 19:15 lead at half-time. Barça Lassa started the second half with Saric in goal, Sigurdsson out wide and Lazarov at full back. Saric made three important saves in a row and then Lazarov found the net to give his side a 22:16 lead, their biggest of the game at that point. A counter attack from Sigurdsson pushed the advantage out to eight (27:19). The side from Santander held their own from that point in terms of scoring but were unable to make any inroads into Barça's lead as the blaugranes closed out an historic 37:28 win.
