Two points escape from the Mini (1-1)

Berta Brau

Igualada scored a last gasp equaliser against Barça B to take two points away from the Miniestadi. It’s the first time Guardiola’s youngsters have conceded a home draw this season and comes on the back of a three-match winning run.

The FC Barcelona reserve side played well but were hit by an equaliser in injury time. Igualada won promotion this season and have started the campaign well.

45 minutes of Barça dominance

Barça B dominated possession in the first half and created a number of dangerous attacking moves. The opening minutes were all Barça and the goal was inevitable.

Guerra again

An intense second half

Igualada reacted well after the break and tested Oier Olazábal in the Barça B goal a number of times. The contest took on a different aspect as the visitors upped the pace of their game and held their share of possession. The atmosphere became tenser with some physical play, leading to more fouls, and the referee was finally forced to red card the Igualada manager Martí Alavedra.

Changes and penalty

In the 71st minute the referee gave a penalty for a foul on Pedrito. Victor Vázquez took the spot kick but it was saved by Igualada keeper Ander. Guardiola then brought on Thiago for his third division debut.

A tight finish

Igualada continued to create danger on the counterattack but Barça B defended firmly until Brullet got the equaliser in injury time. The final draw leaves Barça B with 14 points.
