Barça B said goodbye to the Miniestadi without being able to keep alive their struggle to avoid relegation. On the penultimate day of the league, Barça B lost to assure that they'll be playing in the Second Division B come next season . The 5–2 defeat to Leganés mathematically eliminates them from salvation.

Although Munir El Haddadi put Barça up early on a 10th minute goal, Leganés got back to back goals to take the lead before Palencia drew Barça level on 58 minutes. But that was it for the Catalans as the visitors scored three more, the final two cementing a hat trick for Eraso, as another disapointing loss rounded out the home schedule.

Five years in Second Division A

FC Barcelona B will play their last game at Recreativo before bidding farewell following  the last five seasons in the Second Division A. They came to the A division in 2010/11, when they finished in third place. They also finished third in the 2013/14 season. In 2011/12 and 2012/13 they came in eighth and ninth, respectively.
