It’s time for Barcelona B’s second match of the season! After a disappointing start to the campaign with a 1-1 draw against Algeciras at home, Barça B play their first away game against Catalan rivals Gimnàstic in Tarragona.
The schedule isn’t kind for Barça B with many of the top teams in the division in the first few weeks of the season, and the squad is in flux with injuries and players away in international duty. New head coach Sergi Barjuan is yet to find any consistency with team selection, but there are good news for this one with Nico González and Iñaki Peña available to play this one since the first team is on an international break.
This is a long season but the Third Division is extremely competitive and earning a playoff spot won’t be easy, so they can’t afford too many early slip-ups. This won’t be easy, but Barça B have enough talent to put up a good fight and win on the road.
Just like with Barça Femení, Barça Blaugranes will give the B-team some more love this season so we hope you join us for today’s game. Vamos!

Matchday Thread Rules
We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:
Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.
Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
