Barça B-Mirandés: Reserves self-destruct (1-3)

Barça B-Mirandés: Reserves self-destruct (1-3)

In football, the ball never forgives. If you fail to put the ball into the net, you get punished. It is as simple as that. Yet Barcelona B seem to be so deeply confused at this time that they can’t even do basic things right. The match against Mirandés on Saturday was a true disaster. For all of the team’s good efforts in attack, there were tons of missed chances and a catalogue of inexplicable defensive errors. In essence, Barça B managed to throw away a match that could have very easily been theirs. Mirandés may have had the lead from early on, but once Dongou equalised it all seemed to be going the right way. No. Somehow, Mirandés scored two more goals to triumph in Barcelona. Read more…

Barça B-Mirandés: Reserves looking to pair wins

Barcelona B managed to put an end to a horrible run of form with a precious, hard-fought victory away at leaders Girona thanks to Alen Halilović’s wonder goal, but league action is going and Barcelona B has to prove that last week’s result wasn’t just a flash of lightning, but a continued storming with the target of climbing up the table. Today’s match against Mirandés surely presents Eusebio’s men with a golden opportunity to get a first win at the Miniestadi since October 19. Read more…
