After Real Madrid were knocked out of the Copa del Rey, everyone thought that the other Spanish giants Barcelona were also heading that way after the scoreline read 0-2 after 87 minutes against Granada.
But an inspired Barcelona team had other things on their mind and made one of the best comebacks in Copa del Rey history. They scored 2 late goals to take the match into extra time and eventually won the match by 5-2 after 120 minutes.
Barcelona joined Sevilla, Athletic Club and Levante as the last 4 clubs remaining in the Copa del Rey tournament.
The semi-final of the Copa del Rey has now been drawn, and the clubs have their route to glory planned out.
- Sevilla vs Barcelona
- Athletic Club v Levante
Barcelona are the current favourites for winning the Copa del Rey, considering their recent form. But interestingly, the final of the previous Copa del Rey tournament hasn’t been played yet as it was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
