B team seal third spot (2-3)

Barça B finished off the season with a great win against already promoted Rayo Vallecano to take third spot -the best ever performance by a Club B team. Tello scored twice and leading scorer Jonathon Soriano got the third –his 32nd of the campaign.

Rayo Vallecano:
Juan Carlos, Tito, Casado, Amaya, Movilla, Míchel, Armenteros, Piti, García, Carlos and Trejo.

FC Barcelona B: Oier, Bartra, Romeu, Tello, Edu Oriol, Soriano, Ilie, Carmona, Planas, Abraham and Benja

Goals: 1-0 Piti (min 24), 1-1 Tello (min 34), 1-2 Tello (min 41), 1-3 Jonathan Soriano (min 66), 2-3 Trejo (min 81).
This was a great send off for Luis Enrique, with the team achieving the goal they’d set themselves over the last few weeks and finishing in the top three. Neither injuries nor international call ups were able to weaken the determination of the B team who finished a great season in great attacking style.

Still plenty at stake

Both teams still had something to fight for on the final day of the season, with Rayo still in with a chance to become champions and Barça B hoping to finish higher than any other B team at the Club had ever done before. This was no end of season dead rubber, but a vibrant and open game of football with plenty at stake.

Tello double

There were at least 10 good chances in the first half as both teams laid out their stalls. Tello hit the woodwork early on, before the hosts took the lead through Piti on 24 and then Barça scored with two quick breakaways, magisterially finished off by Cristian Tello to give them a 1-2 lead at the break.

The pace dropped a little in the second half and the home fans took advantage of the final minutes of the season to pay homage to their newly promoted team. Soriano scored a fantastic third, with great control and an unstoppable shot for his 32nd goal of the season and even though Trejo pulled back a late one for Rayo, it was Barça B who left with the points and a well deserved and hard won win to round of a historic campaign and end in third spot.
