FC Barcelona U12A - Espanyol: Champions of La Liga Promises (1-0)
The Blaugranes secured the tenth title in the club's history thanks to a goal from Iván
A spectacular tournament for Barcelona’s U12A team has finished in the best possible way: with the title. This year's win at La Liga Promises, formerly called the Brunete Tournament, is the tenth in Barça’s history.
It was a very intense day, with a semifinal victory against Deportivo coming via a penalty shoot-out (4-3), after the game had ended in a 1-1 draw. In the final, Marc Serra’s side dominated from the start, but despite controlling possession, they were unable to find the net in the first half.
After the break and thanks to a commanding performance from Jan Quiles, chances began to arrive. Finally, in the 31st minute, Iván Rodríguez scored the decisive goal (1-0). Taking advantage of Pau's assist, the Barça striker placed his shot past the outstretched hand of the Espanyol keeper.
