Barça eliminates Celta from Copa del Rey

January 12, 2018 Leave your thoughts

Barcelona are through to the last eight of the Copa del Rey after dominating Celta Vigo last night at Camp Nou.

Last week with a diminished side Barça could only manage a 1-1 draw in the away leg. However last night with the squad back to full strength there was no doubting. Messi scored twice in the first quarter hour, with Alba and Suarez scoring one each either side of the half hour. That was already enough to secure a place in the next round but all the same Rakitic added another to make it 5-0 with three minutes remaining on the clock.

Joining the Catalans in the quarter finals are Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Leganes, Alaves, Espanyol and Sevilla. The draw will take place later today.
