Aitor Cantalapiedra was back in action for the reserve team/ VICTOR SALGADO - FCB

FC Barcelona B have drawn 1-1 with Huracán in Division 2B in game where they played the better football, but try as they could, the goals didn’t want to come against a very defensive opponent.

Things got off to a bright start when Grimaldo received from Samper and dribbled round the keeper before slotting the ball home after just six minutes. Barça sought to build on that inertia by finding a second, and Dongou came closest before having to come off injured. He was replaced by Cámara, who provided more depth down the left, first supplying Rolón with a great pass that the Argentinian failed to make the most of, and then crossing for Aitor to fire just wide.

It was then that Huracán started to take the initiative, made good of their momentary dominance by scoring through Cubillas. A header from Ros and a long shot from Kaptoum sought to re-establish FCB’s lead, but things stayed 1-1 until the break.

Barça were even more dominant and created even more chances in the second half, while Huracán were content to sit in their own half and hope to spring surprises on the counter, without too much fortune. Maxi came close to connecting with a cross from the left from Cámara, which would have been a certain goal had he managed to make contact. And he also came close in a one-on-one on visiting keeper Paco, but the ball drifted just over the bar.

Aleñà’s entrance towards the end stirred things up a bit, and he was twice denied by some fine goalkeeping, the latter of the two chances coming after a delightful move by Godswill down the right. Gerard López¡s side went for all-out attack in the final minutes in search of the three points, but time ran out and it all ended with a very unsatisfying draw.
