Despite being minutes away from crashing out of the Copa del Rey with a 2-0 defeat, Barcelona came roaring back to claim a 5-3 win over Granada after extra time to progress to the semi-finals..




Ronald Koeman had identified the competition as Barcelona’s best chance at silverware this season, and their hopes remain alive after an exciting evening.

Antoine Griezmann and Jordi Alba struck in the last three minutes of normal time to force the extra half-an-hour after Kenedy and Roberto Soldado goals looked to have sent Ronald Koeman’s men crashing out.

Griezmann netted in before a Fede Vico penalty brought the sides level once again, before further strikes from Frenkie De Jong and Alba settled an enthralling contest.
