Barça draws in first match of 2010

January 4, 2010

Barcelona remain at the top of the Spanish league despite drawing at home to Villarreal on Saturday night thanks to Real Madrid’s Sunday night draw.

Despite Pedro’s early goal for Barça they were unable to dominate the visitors as is their usual style, and Villarreal kept up their own pressure. Barcelona came close to scoring again through the efforts of Henry, but in the end it was Villarreal who put the goal in the net at the beginning of the second half.

And with the visitors keeping on the pressure, it was all Barça could do not to concede a second goal.

1-0 Pedro (min 7)
1-1 Fuster (min 50)
