Barça flew into a final without alternatives and struck down Ademar León (27-35) in a tournament with fans in the stands, although with a reduced capacity, at the WiZink Center in Madrid, precisely when it was almost a year since the confinement for la pandemia.
The eighth cup title followed by the Catalans, the 25th in their history, was forged with the forcefulness and superiority of a team that has not lost a title in Spain precisely since the 2013 Cup. Barça has also just beaten a record with 14 wins in as many games in the Champions League, a competition in which this season has a pending issue after its defeat against Kiel in the final corresponding to the previous one but played in December. temporized. It came out like a breath. He stole the ball in the first two attacks of Ademar and Aleix Gómez translated them into the 0-2 that began to score a growing superiority
Ademar reacted slightly, encouraged by the streak of saves of their Algerian goalkeeper Khalifa Ghedbane, seven in the first half, due to some attacking actions in which Barça crashed into the pivots, the Polish Piechowski, of 2.10 meters, and Rubén Marchán , of 2.04.
Manolo Cadenas, the coach of Ademar, dispensed with a couple of goalkeeper attacks to attack with seven outfield players, the tactic that Kiel did so well in the European final. But in the first attack, Moller, Barça's Danish goalkeeper, took the ball and scored from goal to goal. In the second attack with that Ademar tactic, the same thing was about to happen. Chains rectified immediately. Barça, with the French Fabregas and N'Guessan as the main executors, opened a gap of nine goals before the break (10-19).
Ademar did not find a way to reverse the dynamics of the game, even at favorable times. He did not know how to avoid a goal when he was in superiority due to the exclusion of the Portuguese center Frade, nor did he know how to take advantage of a penalty because Gonzalo Pérez de Vargas stopped the Chilean Feuchtmann's shot. Barça did not let up in the second half, in which they came to dominate by 12 goals (22-33). Ademar had already achieved their goal the day before, by qualifying for and to compete in European competition next year. And Raúl Entrerríos, the author of three goals, received the award for the best player in a final that, at 40, could be the last of the Cup for him.
