Barcelona B enjoyed a great win in the derby over Espanyol B on Sunday thanks to a single goal from Peque.
The visitors were the better side in the first half and had chances to break the deadlock with Gustavo Maia, Konrad de la Fuente, Alex Collado and Peque all going close.
Barca B eventually opened the scoring 10 minutes into the second half. Captain Collado did brilliantly to send the ball in after a pass from Gavi for Peque to apply the finish.

Indeed it was a great debut for Gavi who has come into the side while Ilaix Moriba continues with the first team. The 16-year-old seemed completely at home and looks to be yet another brilliant midfield talent to come out of La Masia.
