Barcelona Secures Last 16 Spot in Copa del Rey with Late Victory over Fourth-Tier Barbastro

Barcelona’s Narrow Victory in Copa del Rey

Unexpected Sighting of Former President

Barcelona’s 3-2 Copa del Rey win over Barbastro was not as straightforward as they may have hoped. The match started off with an unexpected sighting of former club president Josep Bartomeu in the stands at Barbastro’s Estadio Municipal de Deportes de Barbastro home. Despite this distraction, Barcelona seemed to be in control for most of the match.

Late Drama

The majority of the match went according to plan for Barcelona, with Fermin Lopez and Raphinha helping them to a comfortable lead. However, late drama ensued as Barbastro pulled Barcelona back with two late goals, causing tension for the Blaugrana. Despite a late penalty from Robert Lewandowski, the match ended on a nervy note as Marc Prat fired home a second for Barbastro.
