Barcelona welcomed Rayo Vallecano at the Nou Camp earlier tonight as they looked to earn a victory at home. The Catalan giants dominated possession in the first half but were held to a scoreless draw at half-time.

Xavi’s men pushed on in search of the opener in the second half but struggled to finish off any of their chances. The contest ended with Barca being held to a 0-0 draw at Catalonia.

Let’s take a look at how each Barcelona player performed during the match against Vallecano.

CB: Andreas Christensen – 6.5/10
