Barcelona B continued their run of good form with a 3-0 home victory over Sporting Gijon in the Spanish second division. This match had been a headache for Barça B coach Eusebio Sacristán because of the absence of several key players who had been called away for international duty with Spain’s under 21 side. But the team responded with goals from Luis Alberto (40″ mins), Jean Marie Dongou (60″ mins), and Joan Angel Roman (85″ mins) to erase the challenge from Gijon. After 9 match days, Barça B now sit in 4th place with 16 points.
