El Barça struck first in the League final. Jesús Velasco’s men are one victory away from closing an almost perfect season, although Palma left a notice at the Palau: it will not be easy to lift the title. In a match of you to you, the azulgranas had more hits in the areas, something decisive.
Little can be blamed for Palma’s approach and match, especially in the first half, with an aggressive defense on the front line and making Barça’s game uncomfortablewho had not quite found the game with his main weapon: Ferrao.
But if the Barça team has something, it is its great variety of resources. And this time, as in the semifinal of the Champions League, the one who appeared was Dyego. Two individual actions, one for each band, served him to overtake his team twice in two plays in which Fabio could do something else.
in between, Palma had signed the tables through Higor, in a great pivot action in which he left Sergio Lozano. Although the Balearic Islands lacked success to win more prize, Before the tie Cainan he had a header at an empty goal that sent him out and shortly before the break Higor failed to finish
28 seconds after the resumption came the tie, work of Nunes after an error of Dídac in a pass, but even so the second part was of the locals. Barça took possession and Palma delayed their defense a few metres, which made them suffer more.
Adolfo, at 28 minutes, put the azulgranas back ahead and Ferrao, with six to go, put a 4-2 that seemed very difficult to overcome. It was the turn of the game of five of the Balearic Islands and the Barça defense, which left no gaps and took the first point. On Saturday he can decide in Son Moix, with the wild card of the third game just in a week at the Palau.
