Barça decisively beats Cordoba for place in Copa del Rey Quarter final

January 11, 2013

FC Barcelona easily qualified for the Copa del Rey quarter finals last night after a 5-0 win against Cordoba, for an aggregate of 7-0. Goals came from Thiago just after the quarter hour mark, and two each from Villa and Alexis. 

With Tito Vilanova in New York seeking a second opinion on the treatment for his salivary gland tumour, Jordi Roura was once agan in charge. While the result was good, Barça suffered two injuries; Sergi Roberto was replaced just after the second half started, while David Villa came off 12 minutes before the end with a thigh strain.

Barça will face Malaga in the quarter finals. The first leg will be played at home on January 16th, with the away leg on the 23rd.

1-0 Thiago (min 16)
2-0 Villa (min 20)
3-0 Villa (min 25)
4-0 Alexis (min 54)
5-0 Alexis (min 84)
