1-1 draw against ValenciaFebruary 28, 2008
Barcelona’s persistance paid off in the final minute of the second half when they equalized against Valencia in the first leg the Copa del Rey semi-final.
Having failed to capitalize on some early opportunities, Barcelona were determined not to let the visitors win. Clearly the better team, Valencia seemed to possess an impenetrable defense. However, a blast from Xavi with a few seconds remaining on the clock saw that Valencia’s advantage was minimized.
The return match takes place on March 20th.
