Barça B 1-0 Lleida Esportiu: Preseason ends on a high note
Gerard López's side claim victory in Friday's friendly at the Miniestadi thanks to a 51st minute header from Marc Cardona
A 51st minute goal from Marc Cardona split the teams as Barça B beat Lleida Esportiu in the last of their preseason fixtures. The reserves always looked the better team in an interesting game – and will probably feel that they deserved to win by a wider margin.
It was all fine preparation for next weekend’s debut match in the second division, away to Real Valladolid.
It was after the break that the blaugrana really let their dominance show against their fellow Catalan outfit, the third tier club that was formed out of the liquidated UE Lleida in 2011.
They had already missed a penalty before Cardona converted his sixth goal of the summer programme, heading home a Ruiz De Galarreta cross.
