Barcelona face Espanyol in King's Cup quarters, Real play Leganes

Barcelona face Espanyol in King's Cup quarters, Real play Leganes

Messi again showed his special understanding with Jordi Alba by meeting the left back's low cross first time for the opener in the 13th minute and moments later played a one-two with the Spain global and slammed the ball into the bottom corner.

Sevilla's form in the Spanish top flight has dropped off of late, while Atletico have recovered from a poor start to climb to second behind Barca, but their encounter could be the quarter-final to watch out for. Substitutes: Thomas Vermaelen (for Pique, 46) 5, Ousmane Dembele (for Messi, 59) 6, Jose Arniaz (for Iniesta, 62) 6. Substitutes: Nemanja Radoja (for Wass, 46) 4, Gómez González (for Aspas, 46) 5, Brais Mendez (for Sisto, 57) 5.

13' GOAL! Barcelona 1-0 Celta Vigo (2-1 on aggregate): Barcelona have the opener and it has come through Messi!

Messi netted twice in two minutes inside the opening quarter of an hour, steering home from two Alba crosses, before he returned the favour with a sumptuous pass that allowed the full-back to score his second goal of the season.

Instead the Barcelona boss has promoted Arnaiz and Carles Aleña from the second team after the 22-year-old forward scored the Catalan's only goal in the first leg before being rewarded with his La Liga debut during the weekend victory over Levante. This time, Celta Vigo play themselves into trouble and Suarez makes them pay with a very clinical finish. Every Celta defender went to the near post and Rakitic was left unmarked to head home a Dembele corner kick.

Jordi Alba has assisted Lionel Messi for seven goals this season (in all competitions), more than any other Barcelona player.
