Reserves look to extend unbeaten run

Jaume Marcet

Barca Atletic are on an unbeaten run stretching back to13th March when they lost to Sporting Maonès in the Miniestadi (1-2). Another good result on Sunday will clinch promotion to Second Division A.

Barca Atletic won the first leg of their promotion playoff 1-0 at home to local rivals Sant Andreu and need to finish off the job on Sunday with a positive result in the Narcis Sala stadium. An analysis of their away results this season invites optimism.

Finishing on a high

BARxA_ATLETIC-SANT_ANDREU-25.jpgThe reserve team, managed by former Barca star Luis Enrique, has lost just six of the 43 competitive matches played this season. Since the last defeat against Sporting Maonès Barca Atletic have accumulated 8 wins and 6 draws to take them to within a whisker of promotion to the second level of Spanish league football. During this period they have scored 22 goals and conceded 10.

Odds in Barca’s favour

All the signs are good. Of the 21 away scores so far this season, only one of them would deny Barca Atletic their ticket to promotion, while a repeat of the 1-0 defeats away to Mallorca and Denia would send the match to extra time.

Sant Andreu
