Barça win reserve derby (0-2)


Barça Atlètic, managed by Luis Enrique, have scored a well-deserved 0-2 win over cross-city rivals Espanyol B.

The first half hour belonged pretty much to the home side and Espanyol B had as many as four clear chances to take the lead. And with the Barça players forced back into their own half a well-organised Espanyol defence had little work to do.

Debut for Martí Riverola

Barça were looking more and more dangerous and Soriano had three chances to double the lead against his old club. In the 35th minute Martí Riverola came on to make his reserve team debut.

Barça ride the storm

In the second half, Espanyol pressed hard for an equalizer and enjoyed most of the possession. However, Barça defended well and the home team created few opportunities.
