Barça win opening match of Copa del Rey campaignOctober 31, 2012
FC Barcelona opened their Copa del Rey campaign last night with a 3-0 victory against Alaves, relative minnows from division 2B. While several key players were rested, the Barça squad still boasted some regular players with just a single B team player in the squad.
The hosts were showing that they weren’t a walkover and attacked the Barcelona goal, while falling back to defend when the Catalans broke through. However, in the end it was the big guns who counted, with a goal from Villa at the end of the first half followed by Iniesta and Cesc scoring one each after the break.
0-1 Villa (min 39)
0-2 Iniesta (min 49)
0-3 Fabregas (min 86)
