Key Players and Match Highlights

Barca’s Joao Cancelo came closest to scoring in a tepid first half when his shot from near the halfway line arched over Athletic’s goalkeeper but was cleared away by a defender. The home side were more aggressive following the interval, with Inaki Williams and Alex Berenguer proving to be a constant menace.

Unfortunately for Barca, they suffered two injury blows, with midfielders Frenkie de Jong and Pedri forced out in the first half. De Jong was carted off the field in the 26th minute after landing awkwardly on his right foot. Moments before halftime, Pedri left the pitch in tears after suffering what looked like a right leg injury.
