Despite recently being crowned champions of Europe, Barça are still looking for their first win in the league after going down to 3-1 defeat in Cordoba on Saturday. Esquerdinha was the only player to beat an extraordinary home keeper. Prieto dealt with absolutely everything else Barça threw at them, and there was a lot of that, meaning the day ended in frustration for the Catalans.
The game was preceded by Adolfo being handed awards for MVP, top goalscorer and best wing of the previous LNFS season, while Lozano was the best lock and Barça as a team took the Fair Play trophy.
Next up, on Wednesday 21 at 8.00pm CEST, there is a huge game when Inter Movistar comes to the Palau Blaugrana.
Cordoba: Prieto, Cordero, Zequi, Jesulito, Saura, Boyos, Jesús Rodríguez, Koseky, Shimizu, Pablo del Moral, Ricardo & Manu Leal.
