Three-time champions!

Andorra has lifted its third Copa Catalunya after beating Olot in the penalty shootout. In the 90 minutes of play, the two teams scored a goal and ended up tying in a game that could have gone either way.

The match started with the planned script, with Andorra having the ball and the home team waiting for their opportunity in the counterattack. In fact, the locals had the first chance from Arnau Forés that saved Oier with his foot. For their part, the Tricolours did not forgive in the first they had: in a quick transition, Álex Calvo served the goal to Álvaro Martín (36'). Before half-time Olot could have equalised with a shot from Terma that hit the post.

The second half started similarly, but little by little Olot gained ground. Karrika tried to surprise the home keeper but couldn't find the goal, while in the 71st minute, Oier saved the equalizer. Ten minutes after, however, the Basque goalkeeper could do nothing in a corner kicked quickly that Urri finished in the back of the net.

With the goal, the match went mad and either team could have taken the win before the final whistle. In five minutes, Andorra enjoyed three clear chances to score from Karrikaburu, Alvaro Martín and Sergio Molina, while the home side were able to turn the scoreboard around in a messy action that ended with the ball hitting the crossbar. And even clearer was the last play of the match in which Oier again made a great stop and Roquet shot too high inexplicably.

In the penalty shootout, the tricolor goalkeeper once again acted as a hero saving two penalties, while Álex Calvo scored the winning goal that allowed Andorra to become three-time champions.
