Wow! What a performance in game three of the UEFA Youth League. Òscar López's side rolled their way to victory to top the group with 7 points, three more than second placed Inter.
Wearing the grey third strip, it took just five minutes for Chadi Riad to put the Catalans ahead at the Stadio Ernesto Breda, heading in a Unai corner, and on 20 minutes another corner was nodded in, this time by Pelayo.
As if Inter weren't having a hard enough time out there, they then had Stante sent off just before half-time, and the ensuing penalty was converted by Víctor Barberà.
3-0 up going into the second half, and although the Italians gave it their best shot, hitting the crossbar at one point, any remote hope they may still have arboured was lost when Aleix Garrido set up Víctor Barberà for his sixth goal in the competition.
Barça still threatened to score more, and that s exactly what they did. Unai Hernández slotted home number five after 78 minutes, and moments later Marc Guiu chipped in the sixth.
Inter did pull one back when awarded a penalty right at the end, but today was an absolute masterclass from the Barça U19s, who are now looking very well positioned indeed for a place in the knockout stage.
Next up is Inter again, this time at the Estadi Johan Cruyff next Wednesday.
