Barça B and Alavés fought to a scoreless draw on Saturday evening at the Miniestadi in the debut of new head coach Jordi Vinyals. His squad gave everything they had to break a string of disappointing results. Unfortunately, they couldn't create enough scoring chances and had to settle for a point, although it will surely add some much-needed confidence.

One could see Vinyals's hand at work in a slightly reconfigured Barça B. Captain Sergio Juste played his first game as a starter in three seasons and Patric moved inside after a long time on the wing. In addition, the new coach brought back into the starting line up severalplayers absent in recent weeks such as Bagnack, Samper and Adama. Not a bad start.
