Barça controlled the opening 45 minutes but lacked the penetration to take their chances. Carmona had the first chance from a corner after 14 minutes. Twenty-five minutes later the same player finally made it 1-0, finishing off a move he started himself. However, Nástic refused to give up and seconds later minute Powel failed to take a great chance to equalise.

More chances

The second half was much livelier and Barça enjoyed more chances. Carmona and then Rafinha came close in the 52nd and 59th minutes respectively. Jonathan Soriano came on for the final quarter of an hour after his 3-month injury layoff. Nastic opened their lines and created the odd half chance but Barça hung on to keep a clean sheet and take the three points.

Next Friday, Barça B are away to Cordoba in the league.
