A tough match saw Rafa Márquez' team beat bottom side CD Calahorra 0-1 for their first away win for two months. Estanis Pedrola scored the only goal in 9th minute of the first half of a very even game. The unbeaten run now stretches to three wins and one draw.
Rafa Márquez' side came out clearly wanting to get a goal, and just after a good save from Arnau Tenas, Estanis Pedrola scored a wonderful goal. The winger beat two players from the home side before scoring to make it 0-1 in the 9th minute. The game settled down after the goal, with both sides seriously threatening from inside the area, but the score remained 0-1 at halftime.
Both teams were somewhat less accurate with their finishing after the restart. although Barça kept trying to extend their lead. A late push by Calahorra to try to level up the score saw them control the game for a period, but the Catalans' defence and keeper stood firm, confirming the tight away win.
The three points take Barça Atlètic temporarily into second in the table with the teams around them still to play in this round of matches. The next game will be on 28 January against the Real Sociedad B side at Estadi Johan Cruyff.
