FC Barcelona opened their 2011 pre-season with a rather entertaining goalless draw against Croatian side Hajduk Split. As expected Guardiola started with two different side in each half. The first half saw majority of Barca B players start along with the likes of Keita, Afellay and Villa. The full line-up for the first half is Valdes, Dalmau, Fontas, Lobato, Camona, Thiago, Jonathan Dos Santos, Afellay and Villa. The first half had Barca controlling the majority of possession but the better chances came from the Croatian side. it wasn't like we were not creating anything - there was a stupendous strike from Villa which hit the crossbar, another wonderful shot from Thiago after some dashing run through midfield, but all these was far in between. The second half saw a completely different side - Pinto, Balliu, Abidal, Rosell, Maxwell, Iniesta, Busquets, Riverola, Cuenca, Jonathan Soriano, and Jeffren. Definitely we started taking full control in the second half with Iniesta, featuring a new hair cut running riot. The finishing at times have been poor but still there were enough positives from some of Barca B players performances. The likes of Soriano, Thiago, Jonathan dos Santos all impressed. They all should see more playing time with majority of starting eleven players from now on.
