FC Barcelona U-19s fall by the minimum at CD Ebro to open the New Year

The FCB youngsters give up the game's lone goal on a corner kick and are unable to strike back despite plenty of chances to do so

[[DES_1]]The FC Barcelona Under-19 team saw their three-game unbeaten streak snapped on Sunday afternoon, falling 1–0 at CD Ebro in the first game of 2016.

A surprise goal coming directly off a corner kick in minute 16 was all Ebro needed as the Catalans were unable to take advantage of numerous scoring chances throughout the remainder of the game.

SeungHoPaik, who started, and AlexisMeva, who came on for Paik later in the game, reappeared for FC Barcelona while Rafa Mujica made his blaugrana debut. 

The lone goal came as FC Barcelona goalkeeper AndreuCases was screened on an Ebro corner kick and was unable to react in time.

Ebro then went into defensive mode, giving the visiting Catalans plenty of chances to equalise.

Mujica came close to drawing FCB level in the waning moments but the Ebro keeper saved the day, securing the victory.

The loss for FCB leaves them in fourth place in Group 3 of the U-19 top flight with 30 points, 12 behind leaders RCD Espanyol.
