Barca B, officially known as the FC Barcelona Athletic has secured the third place in the Segunda Division A, following their 2-3 away victory at second placed Rayo Vallecano. Rayo Vallecano who were just one point behind the leaders, Real Betis saw their grim hope of winning the league wiped off with Barca B victory. In any case it didn't matter as the Champions Real Betis made nos mistake in the match against VillarealB. Even though the kids secured the third position, they won't be eligible for promotion play-offs. In Spain the junior tems are not allowed to play in League or Championship where the first team is playing. But still to finish third in the league is not some small feat. When they got promoted to the second division, I seriously expected a struggle to survive in the League. But Luis Enrique's boys have done wonders and did really well in the League. So congrats to our kids, and oh yes! "The Kids can Play".

More La Masia Recruits for Barca

With Chygynskiy's and Toure's departure, Guardiola is looking to La Masia for defensive cover for next season. Atleast four Barca Atletic defenders may find more playing time with the first team next season. Barca is expected to release Marquez and Caceres and also is expected to send Henrique out on loan yet again. Caceres performance against Holland in the World Cup semi-final may force the management to think about a loan deal rather than selling the player. He still may fulfil all the promises he shown at a very early age. Marc Muniesa, Andreu Fontas, Marc Batra and Sergi Gomez all are expected to make the cut for the first team this season. Muniesa is widely regarded as the natural heir to Puyol's throne and he should see more playing time than others. Add to this, Jonathan Dos Santos and Thiago, we have two brilliant midfielders also emerging from the academy.

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.

A 89th minute penalty taken by Jonathan Soriano gave Barca Atletic a valuable 1-0 win against local rivals Saint Andreu. Barca Atletic struggled to break a very compact Sant Andreu side and the penalty which could prove to be the difference was a controversial one. The next leg takes place next weekend. Chances were at premium in a tough match and Thiago, Muniesa and Nolito failed to take their chance. With a 1-0 advantage, Barca is in prime position to earn the promotion. Barca Atletic starting eleven : Oier Olazábal, Ilie Sánchez, Sergi Gómez, Marc Bartra, Víctor Espasandín, Oriol Romeu, Sergi Roberto, Thiago Alcántara, Víctor Vázquez, Nolito and Jonathan Soriano.

Jonathan Soriano then scored twice to secure the precious win for Barca B side. The club has been looking forward to see the B team playing in the second division as it will give so many youngsters (who are looking to break into first team) more exposure and match practice. The first round of the Play offs saw we getting past Poli Ejido on basis of away goal. Barca Atletic's opponents for the thrid round will be revealed tonight. Thiago was sensational throughout the match, scoring one and creating the third with a no look pass. Watch the highlights of Barca Atletic's victory over Real Jaen.
