The regular season has come to an end for Barça Atlètic and it did so in style with a 2-1 win away at Celta Fortuna to secure third place in the table. Goals from Pau Víctor and Unai Hernández in injury time sealed a comeback win ahead of the play offs and the tie with Ibiza. 

The blaugranes will face the Balearic side away from home in the first leg with the return to come at the Estadi Johan Cruyff. 

Fer López gives Celta the lead 

The game could not have started in worse fashion for the blaugranes with Fer López putting the Galicians ahead on just seven minutes, the striker catching Barça keeper Marc Vidal off guard. 

Rafa Márquez's team were struggling to play their normal fluid game and Celta appeared comfortable and took their one goal lead to the break without too much trouble. However, Barça Atlètic have a potent weapon in Pau Víctor and the striker levelled things up three minutes into the second half after a great assist from Dani Rodríguez, an 18th of the season for the blaugrana. 

Celta had a great chance to retake the lead but Marc Vidal made an excellent stop. Celta keeper Carrillo picked up an injury and with all their changes made, the home side had to place midfielder De la Iglesia in goal. With 12 minutes of added time, the blaugranes lay siege to the home goal and eventually Unai Hernández found a way through to give Rafa Márquez's team the win and a chance at promotion to the Second Division.
