Juvenil A – Cornellà:
Due to injuries to Jaume Jardi and Franc Angong, Franc Artiga implemented a few changes in the line-up with Ilias Akhomach starting the game on the right-wing. Cornella started the game aggressively with high pressure, not allowing Juvenil A to build up from the back. However eventually in the 12th-minute youngsters managed to shake off their pressure.
