However, just minutes later a fine finish from Mati Rosa saw the visitors draw level. Palma keeper Barrón made an excellent save from Ferrao to prevent the blaugranes getting in front and the visitors took advantage as Taffy put them ahead just before half time. 

The home side set about finding the equaliser in the second half and a great combination between Marcenio and Esquerdinha allowed the former to make it 2-2. Chances came for both sides but neither was able to take them as the game went into extra time. Barça keeper Juanjo made two excellent saves to deny Hamza then Paradynski before Barrón, his Palma counterpart excelled in saving a double penalty from Ferrao.
