Barça B play training game against Europa before Playoffs
Iñaki Peña, Morer, Jorge Cuenca, Monchu, Collado and Ansu Fati come back to the B team to prepare for the July 19 battle for promotion
Barça B undertook a second joint training session alongside Europa on Sunday morning, in preparation for their Segunda B playoff opener against Valladolid Promesas next weekend in Malaga (8pm CEST). The friendly training game, following RFEF protocols, took place at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Europa are participating in the Tercera División playoffs against Terrassa on July 19, in Badalona.
Coach García Pimienta's side won 3-0 with goals from Monchu (x2) and Konrad. They had Iñaki Peña, Morer, Jorge Cuenca, Monchu, Collado and Ansu Fati, who have most recently been training with the first team and included in LaLiga squads, alongside them.
Riqui Puig, Araujo and Arnau Tenas, named in Quique Setién's squad to play in Valladolid tonight, were the only absentees besides the injured Hiroki, Labinot and Sarsanedas. Ansu Fati has not played for the second team since preseason, on August 14 2019, when they beat Figueres 4-0.
Barça B have a day off on Sunday, before training every day next week ahead of the Friday trip to Malaga.
