Back on the winning trail (2-0)

Aida Soriano

Barca B got back into the winning groove with a 2-0 win over Elche this afternoon, as Jonathan Soriano and Nolito grabbed the goals for a convincing win.

In the first of their two successive home games, Barca B bounced back from last week’s trouncing to see off Elche. Luis Enrique sent out a three man defence and an attacking set up with two attacking full backs who put in a good game with plenty of control and intensive work to echo their performances in the first two league games.

Edu Oriol, who was active throughout, got the first chance for Barca B, but it was from set pieces that Luis Enrique’s team looked most dangerous, with Muniesa and Bartra getting on the end of two excellent crosses from Jonathan Dos Santos.

The goal came after Nolito had set up Sergi Roberto for a shot, which ricocheted off Soriano and left the Elche keeper flat footed.

Familiar style

Elche tried to hit Barca B on the break, but the Barca defence and Miño held firm, before Nolito grabbed the second to ensure the team’s third win of the season.
