Barça make last 8 in Copa del Rey

January 12, 2017

Barcelona secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey after last night beating Athletic Bilbao 3-1 for a 4-3 aggregate score.

Suarez scored his one hundredth goal for the Catalan club 35 minutes into the first half off a Neymar cross. That was enough to put Barça through after their 2-1 defeat last week. The Brazilian scored from the penalty spot at the start of the second half only to see Barcelona’s advantage neutralised a handful of minutes later with a header by Enric Saborit.

However Leo Messi prevented the game from going to extra time when he scored 12 minutes from full time and secured their place in the last eight.

1-0 Suárez (min 35)
2-0 Neymar (min 48)
2-1 Saborit (min 51)
3-1 Messi (min 78)
