Copa dey Rey: Barcelona survive scare against third-tier side


Barcelona survived a scare in the Copa del Rey as Ansu Fati scored in extra-time to secure victory against Spanish third-tier side Intercity.

Oriol Soldevila, released by Birmingham City last summer, threatened to upset the La Liga giants with a hat-trick.

He first cancelled out Ronald Araujo’s early opener before equalising again after Ousmane Dembele restored Barcelona’s lead.

Raphinha struck in the 77th minute but Soldevila scored again soon after.

That took the game to extra time, where Fati’s deflected finish sent Barcelona into the last 16.
