Match Review: SD Ponferradina 4-4 FC Barcelona B

Match Review: SD Ponferradina 4-4 FC Barcelona B

This kind of scoreline is usually not a good one for commentary. With this kind of scoreline, even a neutral would sit back and watch a game of the Liga Adelante. Yet from a Barcelona B perspective, the game against Ponferradina was both the best, and the worst example of how to manage a two-goal lead away from home. Eusebio’s men came back from behind to earn a two goal lead twice, but somehow Ponferradina managed to equalise within the space of two minutes. Read more…

The international break is finally over and FC Barcelona are heading back to La Liga to face one of this season’s finest teams.

Only two points separate both clubs as Barcelona sit in second place with 25 points and Sevilla closely stalk the leaders with 23. This is going to be a fun one.

Match Review: FC Barcelona B 1-1 CD Numància

Match Review: FC Barcelona B 1-1 CD Numància

Barcelona B’s winless run is set to run for yet another week after the reserves drew against Numància on Saturday. Eusebio’s team were fortunate to go into halftime with the score at 0-0, as Numància completely dominated, but after the restart the hoststook control of the match, managing to equalise the visitors’ early goal and having lots of chances to get their first three points in the league in over a month. There was no reward for their efforts though, meaning that the blaugrana will have to spend another week away from winning ways. Read more…

Match Preview: FC Barcelona B – CD Numancia

Barcelona B’s last few weeks have been ones to forget. The team is now three matches without a win in the league, and coming off the back of a truly shocking exit from the Copa Catalunya at the hands of CE Europa, a Tercera División side. It’s all been a free fall down the pit from Eusebio’s men, and one wonders, is there going to be an end? This week’s home match against Numancia will be a real test of character for Eusebio’s squad. A win paired with a good performance has the potential to turn things around, but if another defeat comes, then Barça B will anxiously start looking down the table. Read more…

Barça B humiliated in Copa Catalunya

Barça B humiliated in Copa Catalunya

You don’t need to be a football analyst in order to tell that there’s something wrong with Barça B. The team simply doesn’t click, but you would always expect them to find a way, hard or easy, to beat a team of the Tercera División (4th level). Therefore, last night’s shock defeat at CE Europa, and especially its magnitude, probably sent shockwaves across Can Barça.

Match Review: Real Betis 1-0 FC Barcelona B

Barcelona B’s problems seem to have no end. The Blaugrana reserves narrowly lost to Betis on Saturday, and took their winless run to three matches. It was also a third consecutive match without scoring for Barça B. Eusebio’s team seemed to run out of ideas in the creative department, and relied on flashes of brilliance from Adama and Sandro to create danger for Antonio Adán’s goal. Betis dominated the match throughout, and eventually got a deserved win in a heated affair.

Breathe. In what was a tense and stressful afternoon, FC Barcelona successfully managed to comeback from a one goal deficit againt UD Almería to win the game and add three massive points to temporarily top the league. Today’s performance was far, far from good, and since both Sevilla and Valencia await the team after the international break, there is much to discuss and much to change. Neymar Jr. and Jordi Alba scored both goals for Barcelona from two amazing Luis Suárez crosses, while Almería’s goal was scored by Thievy Bifouma. Continue reading for more.

Match Preview: UD Almería vs. FC Barcelona

Having earned a crucial 0-2 win against Ajax on Wednesday, Barcelona must find ways to continue their positive momentum against Almería this weekend. Two losses against Real Madrid and Celta Vigo made clear the startling problems with Luis Enrique’s team so far, and while the performance in Amsterdam was an improvement, there are still many flaws to iron out. With the disruption of the international break coming up, followed by key matches against Sevilla and Valencia – both currently challenging near the top of the table – Luis Enrique must use this opportunity to get his team in order and earn the confidence of both the players and the fans.

Ajax-Juvenil A: Narrow defeat in Amsterdam (1-0)

Barcelona’s Juvenil A side didn’t have the luckiest of outings in their visit to Ajax’s legendary De Toekomst training ground, losing 1-0 to newly established group leaders Ajax. Jordi Vinyals’ boys shared dominance in the match with the hosts, but lacked the cutting edge in front of goal, which was what set them apart from their Dutch counterparts. Read more…

Match Review: FC Barcelona B 0-0 Sporting de Gijón

Match Review: FC Barcelona B 0-0 Sporting de Gijón

A hard-worked draw for Barça B. In a game of two faces, Eusebio’s team survived an incredibly intense first half from Sporting de Gijón and then went on to search for the win with some improved play in the second half, yet wastefulness and the referee kept the hosts at bay, prolonging the visitors’ unbeaten streak. Barcelona B, now two games without a win, will definitely take heart from the fact that they managed another clean sheet. Read more…

Match Review: FC Barcelona 0-1 RC Celta de Vigo

Match Review: FC Barcelona 0-1 RC Celta de Vigo

Wastefulness is one of things you never want to have when playing a game of football. You know that you may not get many chances, but those that you do get you finish well. What happens if you get 19 shots, 15 of those being clear-cut chances? Are you allowed to waste them? Of course not. If you do, you are punished. The ball never forgives. If you make mistakes, it stings you. That was pretty much what happened with Barcelona in the match against Celta. The Blaugranas were looking for a response after the clásico, but ended up wasting a catalogue of chances and losing all three points against a valiant Celta side that did basic things well to inflict a second straight league defeat on the Catalans.

Match Preview: FC Barcelona B vs Sporting de Gijón

Barcelona B put on a worryingly lackluster performance in Tenerife last week, and inevitably, ended up losing to one of the league’s bottom sides. The defeat disrupted the good feeling surrounding Eusebio’s team following a string of more positive displays, but it could have actually served as a reminder that there are no ‘easy’ games. This week though, is a wholly different story. Barça are facing their toughest test to date, against 3rd placed Sporting de Gijón. How is the team going to perform? Read more after the jump.

Match Preview: FC Barcelona vs Celta de Vigo

FC Barcelona return to the Camp Nou with a difficult league fixture against Luis Enrique’s former side, Celta de Vigo, after a match to forget against Real Madrid. While a win would help both players and fans to put the clasico loss behind them, Celta de Vigo is not a side to underestimate. The visitors are the only team in La Liga yet to lose an away game, but their record against the Catalans when Barça play at home is not so encouraging. Celta de Vigo’s only win against Barcelona dates back to 1942 which means that they have never won at the Camp Nou, and Barça would surely like to keep it that way.
