Barcelona beats Elche 4-0 for place in Copa del Rey quarter finalJanuary 16, 2015
After Barcelona 5-0 victory in the first leg of the Copa del Rey last 16 there was little hope for Elche in their home leg last night and Luis Enrique opted to field a number of Barcelona B players in order to rest some of Barça’s big names.
It took 20 minutes for the Catalans to make their mark, with a goal from Mathieu. 20 minutes later Sergi scored a second and shortly after Pedro scored a third from the penalty spot. Three goals up and winning 8-0 on aggregate, it took the entire second half for the visitors to score the final goal of the night when Adriano headed the ball into the Elche net in injury time.
Barcelona face Atletico Madrid in the next round after they knocked Real Madrid out of the competition.
0-1 Mathieu (min 21)
0-2 Sergi (min 40)
0-3 Pedro (min 43)
0-4 Adriano (min 90)
