Barça B 3–2 Valladolid Promesas: Into the semifinals!

Garcia Pimienta's side beat Valladolid and reach the semifinals of the promotion play-off to Second Division A

The dream of promotion is still alive! Barça B have beaten Valladolid Promesas in Málaga (3-2), and advance to the semifinals after Konrad's double and Monchu's goal.

It was a game that got off to an electric start, with two goals in less than 10 minutes. In fact, Barça B were out of the blocks very quickly, and Morer's cross from the right side picked out Konrad to give them an early lead (1-0, min 3). Valladolid Promesas didn't take long to hit back through Miguel de la Fuente, however (1-1, min 9).

Garcia Pimienta's side pressed for the second goal, but the clearest opportunities before the break were for La Pucela, through Doncel and Víctor García.

Barça B are on their way to the semifinals

The second half began as the first had ended, until Monchu broke Valladolid's strangle hold, getting on the end of another great Morer centre (2-1, min 57). 

Valladolid continued to work hard and Doncel (min 79) almost drew them level again. Minutes later Konrad grabbed his second (3-1, min 82), which proved to be decisive after Miguel Rubio gave La Pucela some late hope (3-2, min 89).

Barça B will know on Monday who they will play in Thursday's semifinals.
