second Semi-Final saw Urbansport ‘22 take on
Deportivo Dooradoyle as 4th place from Group
A would take on 5th Place from Group B.
Dooradoyle were no strangers to the eurofootballfives.com
Plate competition. They won the Plate at the
2013 Barcelona Fives and were runners-up at
the 2011 Amsterdam Fives and 2014 Berlin Fives.
They had qualified for the Semi-Finals at the
2015 Barcelona Fives, 2018 Gdansk Tournament
& 2019 Budapest Fives They did have 3 defeats
in Plate Quarter-Finals though – at the 2012,
2015 Algarve Opens and the 2017 Barcelona Fives.
Irish team would have their work cut out in
this game though as Urbansport '22 (as Bar Maruru)
won the title here in 2018 and were runners-up
in 2019 so it was a surprise they were in the
Plate rather than the Cup. They showed their
Cup class here as the Spanish turned on the
first half it was Johiner Vasquez that did the
damage with two goals. In the second half it
was Luis Perdouno with two goals. At the other
end, Deportivo Dooradoyle were unable to defeat
Javier Yauguen as the Spanish team ran out 4-0
