Youth Teams-Barça Atlètic

09.01.2010 20:07

Full steam ahead (3-2)


Barça Atlètic are unbeaten in 14 games, which beats the best streak so far under Luis Enrique, which was 13 last season. And they have also consolidated their second place, a point behind leaders Sant Andreu.

The second half of the reserve team’s season has started with a win at the Miniestadi against Badalona, and that was despite going behind twice. The second division is beckoning for Barça B.

Early goal

Luis Enrique’s side needed to find a quick response and they got it in the 12th minute when Montoya broke free down the right and put the ball past visiting keeper Nolito.

Even match

2010-01-09_FCB_ATLETIC_-_BADALONA_004.jpgIt was an action packed first half, with Badalona bouncing back ahead on 25 minutes with a Ferrón run down the right that led to Ivan Mateo finishing the move with a well-struck shot. But moments after, Edu Oriol and Soriano combined in a one-two that saw the latter claim his tenth goal of the season.
Late in the half, both Fontàs and Nolito could have put FCB ahead, but Rubén was quick to intervene on both occasions.

Soriano, decisive

Barça enjoyed most of the chances, and probably deserved the three points, but as time dragged on, it looked like they were going to have to be content with a point. But justice was served up in the 86th minute when a terrific pass from Nolito found the ever-reliable Soriano, who slotted the ball home for an important win.
