What a historic day for Barca fans, Barca Atletic has secured the promotion to Segunda División after a goalless draw against Sant Andreu. Barca B has earlier won the first leg by a solitary, somewhat controversial goal. Barca Atletic has joined Granada, Ponferradina and Alcorcón earning the honour to play in the Segunda División. The entire list of teams who will be participating in Segunda Division next season are Albacete, Alcorcón, Barcelona Atlètic, Betis, Cartagena, Celta de Vigo, Córdoba, Elche, Gimnàstic de Tarragona, Girona, Granada, Huesca, Las Palmas, Numancia, Ponferradina, Rayo Vallecano, Recreativo, Salamanca, Tenerife, Valladolid, Villarreal B and Xerez. That's hell of a list and to remain there itself will be a hard job for Luis Enrique's boys. The team has come a long way in last two season. Josep Guardiola took over the reigns of Barca B who were in Tercera División at that time and got them promoted to the Segunda División B. Luis Enrique continued the good work and within two seasons got the team promoted to the second level of Spanish Soccer League. To the benefit of teh readers let me remid that Barcelona Atletic will not be eleigible for a promotion to La Liga as the Parent team is playing there.

But remaining in Segunda Division itself will be a tough job for our boys. The second leg of third round of play-offs show the Barcelona Atletic put up a splendid defensive display to hold Sant Andreu at bay. The line-up for the match was Miño, Muniesa, Espasandín, Bartra (Sergi Roberto, min 83), Gómez, Oriol Romeu, Benja, Rueda, Nolito (Edu Oriol, min 55), Elvis and Soriano (Thiago, min 76). The fact that the star player Thiago started demonstrated that Luis Enrique was looking for a perfect defensive display. And that's what he got. The promotion to second division will help the young talents in getting some quality exposure and better quality playing time. That should help the club keep the youngsters away from the clutches of other interested clubs.
