Ronald Araujo and Ballou Tabla scored first half goals to lead FC Barcelona B to a 2–1 victory at Badalona on Sunday afternoon. The derby triumph for Barça was their first on the road since mid October and moves them into the upper echelon of the Second Division B standings.
Badalona's Robert Simón pulled one back for the hosts in the 70th minute, but the blaugranes hung on for the victory. Collado and McGuane almost added a third for Barça late but stellar goalkeeping by Badalona's Morales kept it a one-goal game until the final whistle.
