Ehe Barça achieved in Son Moix the fourth ace of his poker. After the Super Cup, the Spanish Cup and the Champions League, Jesús Velasco’s men put the best finishing touch to the season with the League. A very complete year that has culminated in a very close final. In Son Moix, where in the last seven visits he had only won once, he took the title.
If there is something that characterizes this team, it is that it is very reliable and that it is very difficult to knock down. The best example was in the semifinal of the Champions League coming back from 3-0, but in Son Moix the strength of this team was also seen. Palma was in charge for much of the time, but could not finish off the azulgranas.
Contrary to the Palau, this time it was the Balearic Islands who took the initiative on the scoreboard. From the beginning, the respect between both teams and the physical demand that the match was going to have was evident.. Palma was the fastest free-kick, in just 10 minutes, but also the first to score.
When the locals suffered the most, a steal by Chaguinha in the forward pressure served for Higor to make it 1-0. Barça did not feel comfortable, but in a similar action, with a robbery in the opposite field, Sergio Lozano equalized.
It was the gunshot to a few intense minutes. Just a minute later Diego Nunes made it 2-1 in an individual action leaving Lozano and the following minute the own azulgrana captain culminated a one on one in Dyego’s band.
In the second half, what was at stake was more evident, with the appearances of both goalkeepers stopping the rival actions. It was a question of a detail, what decides these matches so evenly matched. And the decisive one came eight minutes from the end, when Pito picked up at the second post a rejection by Fabio of a shot by Sergio Lozano.
A turn of the match that Palma could no longer turn around. The blaugranes, already ahead, knew how to manage the match, lengthening even with long possessions the departure of the Balearic goalkeeper-playerwhich did not arrive until the last two minutes. But there Barça is a specialist and Dyego, 12 seconds away, put the finishing touch to the encounter and to the League.
