A first half strike from Gaffoor sank Barça B at Los Pajaritos despite a spirited performance
A single goal from Gaffoor sunk Barça B, as they slipped to defeat against Numancia despite a fighting performance, which leaves them anchored to the foot of the table.
Gaffoor opens the scoring
Munir, Sandro and Halilovic all came close early on as the B team pushed for the opener, but it was Numancia who took the lead, when Gaffoor headed home from a corner on 21 minutes. Sergi Enrich nearly doubled the lead from another corner before the break and then a deflected shot was well saved by the home keeper to keep Numancia ahead.
Plenty of chances, but no goals
Barça B continued to push hard in the second half and Patric and Dongou were both unlucky not to score, before Suarez pulled off a great save to stop Numancia going further ahead through Íñigo Pérez. A last gasp effort from Grimaldo went over the bar and Barça B were left to reflect on another defeat despite all their hard work.
