Despite officially belonging to the U19 squad, the duo looked solid.

"Both Ilaix Moriba and Konrad de la Fuente have been decisive," Diario Sport quote Barca B's coach Javier Garcia Pimienta saying.

"Ilaix deserves a lot of credit because it's his first season at Juvenil A (U19), but Konrad is playing his third there. In such an important match, they have shown that they have an incredible future.

“Today they have put in a brutal performance. They have had a very complete match. This shows that they are competitive, they are winners and they have the Barca DNA. Hopefully, in the future, they will be first-team players.”

Barcelona B have beaten Real Valladolid's reserves 3-2 in the quarter-finals of the promotion play-offs. Konrad (double) and Monchu were responsible for the goals. They will face Badajoz in the semi-finals on July 23.
