Barça B suffered 3-1 defeat at home to Sabadell on Saturday in a game on which a large part of their play-off hopes hung.

The loss came despite the Blaugrana dominating the first 45 minutes and leading 1-0 at the break thanks to Rafa Mujica, who combined brilliantly with Samper just before the break to produce his first ever goal for the Barça reserves. It was no less than Barça B deserved following the number of chances they had created thus far in the game.

The B team started the second half strongly too, but a second yellow and subsequent sending off for Fali proved fatal, and in the very next move the visitors were able to level through Alcañiz and just four minutes later Agus added another with a well struck shot.

Barça B battled hard to get back into the game, but Sabadell made ther numerical superiority tell, and towards the end of the match, Bruno Vinicius added a third for the Copa Catalunya champions, and it was game over.
