Barcelona : Bengaluru FC ended their 2018 tour of Spain with a 3-0 loss to FC Barcelona B at the Mini Estadi here.

It was the proverbial game of two halves as the Blues opted to be cautious in the opening exchanges. With Barcelona B seamless in attack, Bengaluru were compact in shape and tight in defence to thwart any possible danger.

While the Blues played four friendly games in Spain, Cudarat utilised a total of twenty-three travelling players. Bnegaluru who netted twice in the opening two games were forced into a defensive game in the clashes against Villarreal B and Barcelona B.

The Blues who land in Bengaluru on Thursday, will host Turkmenistan’s Altyn Asyr FK in the first leg of the AFC Cup Inter-Zone semi-final at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium on August 22.
