Full Time Highlights: Barcelona 5 - Cultural Leonesa 0 (Copa del Rey)

barcelona 5 cultural 0

Nice and easy five goal win (a handful of goals that is). Even Messi and Xavi got to score as they played part of the 2nd Half. Bojan scored twice and that's a very good sign. Let's hope he has the chance to prove himself at La Liga next. Enjoy the goals.

Bojan 52' (1-0)

Bojan 54' (2-0)

Pedro 63' (3-0)

Messi 65' (4-0)

Xavi 75' (5-0)

On other news, Real Madrid won only 1-0 against Alcorcon and is out of Copa del Rey competition. Tough luck, madridistas...

Prematch: Barcelona - Cultural Leonesa (Copa del Rey)


Tonight we play Cultural again in the second match of the Copa del Rey. The two goals advantage will make Pep put a similar lineup to the previous math against Cultural with none or few main players on the field. This may be the lineup:

Barcelona: Pinto; Alves, Fontàs, Márquez, Maxwell; Sergio Busquets, Iniesta, Jonathan dos Santos; Pedro, Jeffren y Bojan

Cultural: Calzado; Cerveró, Roberto Carlos, Pereira, Salva; Segovia, Chema Mato; Ferrán, Yahvé, Alberto Suárez y Jito

The player to watch is Jito, the top scorer of all the spanish soccer leagues. Also, we'll have the chance to see young Barça promises as Jonathan, Jeffren or Pedro (who plays with the first team and scored two goals on La Copa and two more against Mallorca last weekend in La Liga). Bojan has another opportunity to prove himself as he Pep doesn't put him much on La Liga.

Fontàs, Benítez, Jonathan Soriano, Jonathan Dos Santos y Gai Assulin

Match is played at 22:00 Spanish Time (that is GMT+1). Stay tuned for info on where to watch online.

Let's have a mini quote roundup:

We're not yet on the next round. This is the most dangerous round in Copa del Rey, we've been defeated several times on this same situation. Sport sometimes brings undesired susprises

Pep Guardiola

Tonight there'll be few people at the stadium, but anyone who comes we'll thank him. There'll be very good players on the filed tonight

Pep Guardiola

Of course Madrid can pass to next round, they've spent 260 millions on reinforcement, it's possible enough!!

Pep Guardiola

I've always dreamt of playing at the Camp Nou and in the end the dream is coming true

Jito, Cultural's top scorer

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is magic

He didn't score yesterday, but he's so much more than a scorer. See for yourself in this cool video. Enjoy.

Full Time Highlights: Barcelona 4 - Mallorca 2 (La Liga)

barcelona 4 mallorca 2

Barça won without the offensive heavyweights (except Ibra) and remains on top of La Liga. It's a pity Madrid won over Atletico. We are on top but it would have been a sweeter victory if we had a 4 point advantage instead of the 1 point we now keep. Event better having to visit Bernabeu when La Liga continues after the international matches next week.

Have a look at the goals. Pedro scored twice, Henry scored his first of the league and the last one was a penalty kick by Messi, who entered on the 2nd half.
