Barcelona are the Super Cup Champion of Spain, defending the title they won last year against Palma Futsal by beating Movistar Inter (3-5) in the first win for the Blaugrana against Movistar Inter in the final of this competition. The last time these two clubs met in the final Barcelona lost 4-3 in 2011.

The match kicked off with an unfortunate injury to Movistar Inter’s Raya with only 13 seconds on the clock played, forcing him to leave the court with notable discomfort to his right knee.
His injury left Pato only with Carlao as the team’s out-and-out finisher, which limited their tactical rotational options, but allowed his energy to be incorporated into the Torrejón team. His high intensity received an early reward when Rubi Lemos recovered the ball to assist Fits, who opened the scoring in what is his first goal since his return to Spain from UEFA Futsal Champions League Final Four participants, Sporting Clube Anderlecht.
Pato made very fast rotations, maintaining his intensity and not allowing Barça to develop into their game with which they had clearly beaten ElPozo with in the semifinal.
Despite everything, Jesús Velasco had a plan for Barcelona in the second half. He advanced his line of pressure a little more and raised the intensity of his game, and the difference between the teams started to show as Movistar Inter could keep up the level of pressure they were trying to apply to thwart Barca’s efforts to control the game, and in the end, cracks started to show as their pace started to lessen and take its toll on Pato’s men.
Jesús Herrero fell into Sergio González’s trap, provoking him to make a pass over, which Barcelonan cut open and from there they started to put scores on the board.
