The pressure advanced of the venues 'killed' to the barcelonistas, that suffered a lot and that took in generating something of danger in the contrary area. The changes approached something more to the Catalans to the goal and Alejandro Balde tested to the goalkeeper of the Network Bull with a powerful far shot that had to take out to corner with a good pulled.
Martin Braithwaite also generated doubts in the Salzburg with a Chilean that did not arrive to goal and little by little the culés began to corner to the venues.

The shot of the side touched in a defence and rebounded in the knee of the forward for colarse in the goal.
Unfortunately, the equalised lasted only some minutes and near of the 90 the Network Bull went back to strike to the Barcelona after a good played of Adamu.
