Video: Barcelona striker Peque Polo produces shocking open-goal miss for B team

Posted by

The 85th minute of the Barcelona B team’s pre-season friendly win against local Catalan side L’Escala threw up a moment to forgot for one La Masia talent.

A brilliant pass from just past the halfway line sent one Barcelona player free on the right side, that player sent an inviting low cross into the box.

The ball flashed past the B team’s No.17, but the chance was still on as Peque Polo arrived at the far post with a gaping goal in front of him.

Despite being just six yards out, Polo somehow sent the ball wide of the post with a disastrous side-foot finish.

The striker hasn’t actually got much experience with Barcelona’s B team so far, the Spaniard has spent the last two seasons out on loan with third-tier sides Poblense and Olot.

Polo also made his first-team debut earlier this week, with the ace one of many talents to make their senior bow in the friendly against Gimnastic.
