Carles Alena made his comeback from injury on Sunday, as Barcelona B picked up their first win of the season with a 1-0 victory over Sabadell.
The midfielder started on the bench, as did Riqui Puig, for the game at the La Nova Creu Alta.

The visitors hung on for the win and get their first three points of the campaign.
