Two great strikers from the edge of the box, one from Álex Collado and the second from Riqui Puig, were not enough to hand Barça B their first ever win at the Estadi Johan Cruyff. Opponents Prat pulled back level not one but twice in the game, first through Arjona at the end of the first half and then through Guzmán with just five minutes to go.
After an even start to the encounter with few chances, Álex Collado almost put the home side ahead with Prat defender Dani Argilaga clearing off the line. However, a great passage of play from Riqiu Puig ended with Collado firing in a brilliant effort from the edge of the area. Nevertheless, just two minutes before half time Arjona slotted home a loose ball in the Barça box to make it 1-1 at half time.
In the second half the deadlock was broken with a spectacular effort from Riqui Puig from distance, scoring his first goal for Barça B. Unfortunately, with a win at the new stadium just minutes away, Guzmán scored with a header to make the final score 2-2 at the Estadi Johan Cruyff.
