Barça B are eager to score some goals without giving any up, and they have another chance to do that at the Ciutat Esportiva on Sunday at 5.00pm CET when they host CD Alcoyano, one of this year's favourites in Group 3 of the Spanish Segunda División B.

Clean sheet

Barça B's rookie head coach Gerard López sat down with Barca TV and fcbarcelona.com to talk about Sunday's game.

"The last game we were able to control the defensive aspect after giving up three goals against Espanyol and L'Hospitalet and it was clearly a step forward. But there is also an offensive side, which is very important for us and that, especially playing at home, we have to turn around."

"We're working on it, and this is a game to win, however we can."

Nevertheless, López said, "Our approach is that it's our turn to win."

Kaptoum, Gumbau and Cámara return; Andreu makes first squad

This Saturday the team held their final training session before Sunday's game and López announced a list of 16 players. Injuries to Suárez, Juste and Campins were influential in deciding whom to call upon. Among the good news is the return of the medically cleared Kaptoum, as well as Gumbau and Cámara. But the biggest novelty is perhaps the debut of U-19 team goalkeeper Andreu Cases.

Here's the full list: Ortolá, Andreu, Godswill, Palencia, Grimaldo, Costa, Tarín, Samper, Ros, Maxi Rolón, Aitor, Dongou, Enguene, Kaptoum, Gumbau and Cámara.

Bagnack and Quinti have been left out due to coach's decision while Ondoa and Babunski are away on national team duty.
