Barça draws with Nice in 2nd pre-season friendly

August 3, 2014

After spending last week training in England, FC Barcelona travelled to Nice for their second summer friendly.

With 10 starting players from the first team squad and just a single B team player, Barça demonstrated their usual high possession and showed what we might expect of them in the forthcoming season.

All the same, it was Nice that scored the opener from the penalty spot after a foul by Pique, but despite a number of opportunities the Catalans failed to score.

Luis Enrique made seven changes after the break, but it was not until the visitors were awarded a penalty kick that Xavi put the ball in the back of the net. In the end the score remained level at 1-1.
