Madrid narrowly edged out Barcelona 17-15 in the first quarter, but a more aggressive and clinical Barcelona outscored their rivals 22-12 in the second quarter.

Real would claw back in the third quarter with a resounding 26-12 to take a marginal lead in the game. However, the never-say-die attitude of Barca sent the game to overtime as the scores were even after the fourth quarter.
