Barça B 3–0 Orihuela

  • Garcia Pimienta’s team were on top for the whole game putting the result beyond doubt before the break

Barça B eased to victory at the Johan Cruyff stadium, beating Orihuela 3-0 and erasing the memory of the 4-1 defeat against Hercules last week in the process. Only 45 minutes were needed to seal the win, Monchu, Severio and Morer scoring before half-time.

Garcia Pimienta’s side were far superior in the opening half, with the likes of Riqui Puig and Abel Ruiz going close before Monchu opened the scoring (1-0, min 11). Severio connected with a cross to surprise Emilio in the Orihuela goal (2-0, min 24), and Barça B just kept on coming. Wave after wave of attacks. After a quarter hour where several chances were missed, Morer made the game safe (3-0, min 44).

Although the hosts could’ve taken their feet off of the pedal they continued to dominate, allowing their visitors just the one chance, a penalty in the 57th minute after Chumi was penalised. Iñaki Peña guessed correctly to keep his clean sheet intact.
