Thus, an important aim by Blaz Janc made it 9-8 that appeared to ask a change of dynamics.
None of that occurred.

They didn’t rating, however the drawback was not decreased even with three objectives in a row from Fàbregas (26-20 and one other timeout for Ortega).
As within the first half, the lifeless time had an impact and Barça instantly decreased their drawback to lower than half with objectives from an important Fàbregas, from an Ariño who additionally multiplied within the 5-1 defensive (nice success de Ortega) and two from an enrachado Aleix Gómez. With 27-25 with 18 minutes left, it was time to present one other push.
And Barça gave it.

A magical cross from Magnusson to Mertens, a penalty aim from Wanne (provoked by Fàbregas) and a save from Nielsen in a determined shot they took the match to further time with 35-35. Wonderful for the way in which issues have been.
After two errors by Fàbregas and Blaz Janc, Barça lastly took the lead with a penalty aim adopted by a courageous motion by the previous Kielce participant. Swedish Hampus Wanne he took benefit of it and the azulgranas gained by 36-37 (min. 63:35)one thing that had not occurred since 2-3. And he did it with Janc as central in a variation that Ortega loves.
