Three from La Masia make first team debuts

Chumi, Jorge Cuenca and Juan Miranda of Barça B all feature in the Copa del Rey victory in Leon

Three products of the FC Barcelona youth team all got to make their official debuts in Wednesday’s 1-0 win at Cultural Leonesa in the Copa del Rey.

Juan Miranda, Juan Brandarizna (Chumi) and Jorge Cuenca of Barça B all started in Ernesto Valverde’s defence at the Reino de León.

The former two both got to play the whole match, while Cuenca, wearing a face-mask, was replaced on the hour mark by Clement Lenglet, the man who went on to score the only goal of the match.

Carles Aleñá, officially a first team member but who has been in the reserves in recent weeks as he gets back into full flow following an absence through injury, came on after 32 minutes as a substitute for another youth product, the injured Sergi Samper.
