Youth Teams-Barça Atlètic

06.12.2009 19:28

Worthy winners (1-2)


Barça Atlètic have racked up their second victory of the week after beating Lleida away. Nolito snatched the winner in the last minute after Soriano had got the first in the 32nd minute.

Barça Atlètic are going great guns in Second Division B and have beaten Lleida 2-1. The side showed they were up for the game right from the kick off as they put pressure on the home team’s goal and continued their run of excellent results.

Barça better

The first half was a clash of styles as Lleida parked the bus while Barça Atlètic were constantly looking for chances to score.

Gay had the first big chance in the 4th minute from a free-kick on the edge of the box, but the home keeper saved well. Barça kept attacking but Lleida’s solid defence and occasional imprecision in the final pass meant they were unable to find the back of the net.

Another goal by Soriano

It took Barça 32 minutes to get a reward for their work. Gai Assulin outwitted two defenders to send in a great pass from the left to Jonathan Soriano on the edge of the box who whipped in Barça’s first.

Just before half-time Barça had another good chance from a free-kick to extend their lead, but Soriano’s goal-bound shot was blocked by a Lleida defender.

More even second half

Lleida began the second half with recharged batteries and a much more open and attacking game which brought them some chances. Barça also had their opportunities, and in the 52nd minute Soriano missed a golden one when he rounded the keeper only to see his shot cleared off the line by a Lleida defender.

The equaliser

Lleida clawed their way back into the game in the 70th minute when Sellarés got the equaliser, driving home a corner taken by Miki. The tempo of the game then ratcheted up several notches as both teams went looking for the three points.

Winner at the death

In the last minute of the game, when all looked set for a draw, Jonathan Soriano once again showed great skill as he sped down the wing towards the home team’s goal. Lleida’s defenders got back to cover but couldn’t stop him, and when just a few feet from the goal he pulled the ball back for Nolito who smacked it into the back of the net.

This was Barça’s seventh win in a row and they now have 33 points, just two behind leaders Sant Andreu.
