Complete second half

Milan were not down and out as they came within one goal of the Blaugrana a minute into the second half. The Juvenil A team regrouped and laid siege to Milan’s goal. This is when Barça played its best football and they managed to reestablish a two-goal lead thanks to Sanabria’s strike after a great play on the left from Munir and Quintillà. Five minutes later, the Moroccan-born player scored his second goal of the afternoon thanks to a good assist from Enguene. In the dying minutes of the match, Maxi Rolón made it 2-6 with a fantastic shot from just outside the area.
