Barça B 2–2 UCAM Murcia: Draw to complete first round of games

Barça earn a draw in a very tough encounter after taking the lead twice

Barça B couldn't complete the win in the last match of the first round of games. The home side took the lead twice through early goals from Matheus and Ilias, but UCAM Murcia halved the deficit from a corner before completing the comeback. The away side were strong in defence and made it very hard for Barça to attack. Barça B now have 26 points in 19 games and remain mid table.

Quick start to the game

It only took five minutes for Barça to go ahead through a super turn and shot from Matheus. Just a couple of minutes later, Moussa Ndiaye tried to clear from the inside the box but it unfortunately went it his own net.

There was no downing of tools, however, and only a few minutes later, Ilias Akhomach scored a cross-shot to restore the lead. The rest of the half saw the game settle down, with Barça going in 2-1 at the break.

Stodgy second half

The second half continued as a midfield battle to gain control, but with no clear chances. However, UCAM Murcia managed to force a corner and Xemi shot to level up the score.

The last half an hour was full of stodgy play, peppered with stoppages. The away side continued to dominate in defence, reducing space for the Barça attack. One last counter attack saw Biel Ribas save an Ilias shot bound for the corner. Barça B have 26 points from 19 games and remain in mid table.
