Sylvia cantillans? Barcelona, Spain

Hi everybody!
I saw this bird yesterday in a park in Barcelona. I think it is possibly a juvenile of Subalpine Warbler (Sylvia cantillans) but I'm not 100% sure.
To me it seemed smaller than a sylvia melanocephala and it moved a lot throughout the bushes. I didn't hear any call.
Can you confirm it is a Sylvia cantillans?

Thanks in advance!

I think so but they are challenging images.
