Youth Teams-Barça Atlètic

03.01.2010 19:14

The year starts well (2-0)


Barça Atlètic have won their last five matches in a row in the Miniestadi after their latest win against Orihuela (2-0). The goals were scored by Edu Oriol and Bartra.

The reserve team, managed by Luis Enrique, have made a good start to 2010 despite missing key players such as Jonathan Dos Santos, Thiago Alcántara, Gai and Víctor Vázquez, all of whom have been incorporated in to the senior squad by Josep Guardiola.

A lively start

Goal calms nerves

The first goal arrived in the 21st minute. Montoya passed deep in to the opposing half for Edu Oriol fire into the net. The goal calmed any nerves the Barça players might have had although Orihuela had their chances to equalize before the break.

Second half chances

Unbeaten run
