A draw for Barça Atlètic against Fuenlabrada (2-2) at Estadi Johan Cruyff, but it could have been much more, after the blaugranes went ahead twice in the game.
Frantic end to the first half
Barça Atlètic began the game controlling possession and the pace of the game, patiently waiting for the opportunities to come. The first goal was superb, Aleix Garrido sitting two Fuenlabrada defenders down with a cutback before shooting past Belman at the near post (1-0).
The blaugranes continued to dominate after the goal, but with just two minutes to go before the break, Fuenlabrada made the most of their few chances in the half as handball was given against Mikayil Faye, Dani Nieto scoring from the penalty spot (1-1). There was still time for more, however, as Pocho crossed to the far post for the onrushing Pau Víctor to put the blaugranes ahead once again (2-1).
First draw of the season
Not a great start to the half for the visitors as six minutes in, Sotillos scored from the edge of the area past an unsighted Marc Vidal to make it 2-2, spurring on the home side to push forwards. Belman had to be quick to stifle Belcan but Marc Vidal also showed great reflexes to send a Fer Ruiz shot wide for a corner.
Barça continued to dominate but were unable to restore the lead despite having a few opportunities and had to settle for the draw. That's four points so far and next up, another away game against Tarazona on 24 September (kick off 8.00pm CEST).
