Numancia-Barça B: Hard work gets no reward (1-0)

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.
