Barcelona made it back-to-back wins in the Ecuadorian Serie A on Sunday, with a 2-0 away win over Universidad Catolica.

The win took Barcelona to eighth on the table on eight points, five behind fifth-placed Universidad.

The visitors to the Estadio Olimpico Atahualpa took the lead on the hour mark, when Holger Matamoros hit a brilliant long-range chip into the Universidad net.

Five minutes later, and the home fans in Quito were stunned when Ariel Nahuelpan doubled Barcelona's advantage.

The victory extended Barcelona's unbeaten run over Universidad since February 2008 - with Gustavo Costas' men winning six of their seven head-to-head matches.
