Barcelona B came from 2-1 down on Sunday to beat Llagostera 3-2 and move to within a point of top spot in Segunda Division B.

Riqui Puig and Alex Collado were both named in the starting XI after not featuring for the first team during Saturday’s win over Real Sociedad.

Monchu got the hosts off to the perfect start with the opening goal after just three minutes of the game:

However, they were pegged back on 66 minutes when Sergio Cortés equalised for the visitors.

The visitors then went ahead through Santiago Magallán to leave Barca B staring at defeat with just 14 minutes of normal time remaining.

However, the hosts rallied and scored twice in the final 10 minutes to secure a fine comeback win.

Jorge Cuena equalised on 82 minutes before substitute Ilaix Moriba hit a memorable winner to leave Barca just one point behind leaders Castellon after 28 games.
