League titles for every one of FC Barcelona's 11-a-side boys' football teams
All teams from U14B up to U19A win their championships, often undefeated and with huge goal differences, and many against teams a year older
It has been a fabulous year at La Masia, with all of the 11-a-side youth teams winning their respective leagues! Let’s take a look at how their seasons have gone…
Òscar López’s side dominated the Division of Honour from start to finish and already had the title sewn up three weeks ago after a last minute goal from Jorge Alastuey secured a 3-2 win at Cornellà.
They lost just two games all season and finished with a 102-21 goal difference and will go on to take part in the U19 Champions Cup.
The last team to win their league was the one managed by Iban Cuadrado, who were mathematically assured of top spot after Fundació Grama lost to Badalona. So they were already champions before celebrating with a 3-2 win at Cornellà with goals from Toni Caravaca, Jordi Coca and debutant Arnau Pradas.
They now have an unassailable ten-point lead on the side in second place, having only lost five games all season.
Ivan Carrasco’s side were assured of first place after Damm lost to Nàstic Tarragona. They lead the Division of Honour by 11 points on second placed Espanyol, with two games left to play. They have only been beaten twice en route to a 97-21 goal difference before making the step up to U19 level.
Pol Planas saw his side confirmed champions with two games left to play with an emphatic 7-0 win against Sant Pere i Sant Pau per 7-0. Not only are they unbeaten, but only twice have opponents even managed to draw with them. Their 99-10 goal difference is all the more extraordinary considering that they are playing against teams that are often all a year older.
David Sánchez’s side were clear winners of their Division of Honour, having not lost a game to date and only allowed two draws. They’re an immense 15 points clear of what was the nearest threat, Nàstic Tarragona, who they beat 4-0 away to confirm the title. Their goal difference of 127-4 shows just how much of an overwhelming dominant force they have been in their division.
Albert Puig’s side got their job done with a 2-0 defeat of La Floresta last week. They are 13 points clear of second-placed Gavà, having not lost a game and with a goal difference of 75-12. That’s a remarkable achievement for a team that was playing 11-aide football for the first time and was playing more experienced sides that are one year older.
