2012 season[edit]

In 2012, Mina rejoined Barcelona. Mina scored his first two goals in a game against Deportivo Cuenca. He finished the 2012 Ecuadorian Serie A season as top goal-scorer, with thirty goals to his name, the second highest global tally by a South American. His thirty goals was the most scored by a Barcelona player in a single season, which helped Barcelona secure its fourteenth title, not having won a league title since 1997.

2013–14 season[edit]

Mina scored his first league goal on 3 August in a 3–0 win against Atlas at the Estadio Azteca. He dedicated the goal to former América teammate and national team striker Christian Benítez, who died on 29 July. On 10 August he scored his second goal in three games played against Atlante in a 4–2 win in Cancún. Mina finished the Apertura tournament with five goals, though in his final match against Club León, which was also the league final, he was subbed off after a bad performance in which he missed four goal scoring opportunities. He was booed off the field and replaced by Luis Gabriel Rey.[1]
