BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Robert Lewandowski has endured a frustrating debut for Barcelona after Rayo Vallecano earned a scoreless draw at Camp Nou in their Spanish league opener. Lewandowski and his new teammates were kept well in check by Rayo. The modest Madrid-based club also proved dangerous on the break and was only stopped from scoring by the goalkeeping of Marc-Andre ter Stegen. More than 81,000 fans turned out to see the new-look Barcelona that club president Joan Laporta built after mortgaging the future of the club to get some much-needed cash to sign Lewandowski and four other new players.
