Barcelona disappoints in Copa del ReyJanuary 6, 2010
Gabriel Milito returned to active duty against Sevilla last night after an 18 month layoff due to a knee injury, but a disappointing performance in poor weather conditions meant that Barça need to pull out all the steps in the return leg of the Copa del Rey next week.
The Barça squad included some unfamiliar faces in the form of Thiago’s debut along with Pinto and Chygrynskiy, but first team regulars such as Messi, Alves and Iniesta couldn’t overcome Sevilla’s well organised play. Commenting after the match, Pep Guadiola took responsibility for the result.
0-1, Capel (min 63)
1-1, Ibrahimovic (min 73)
1-2, Negredo (min 75)
