Barça 3-3 (4-3) ElPozo Murcia: Into the semifinals!

Andreu Plaza's side qualified for the next round after defeating ElPozo on penalties

After just 26 seconds at the WiZink Center in Madrid, Dyego put Barça ahead, however, within a couple of minutes, ElPozo grabbed the equaliser in an incredible start to the match.

Former FC Barcelona player Juanjo, at the request of the VAR, was sent off on eight minutes, just before Ferrao put the Catalans back in front. Despite a succession of chances for the blaugranes, it was Alberto García that struck the equaliser from a corner.

Advantage Barça...

Dídac and Espindola were kept busy in both goals, with the former unable to stop Ferrao grabbing his second to give Barça the lead for the third time in the match. As with both of the previous goals, it was a lead they couldn't hold onto, and Marcel's equaliser sent the game to penalties. 

Dídac's save from Paradynski handed Barça an early advantage in the shoot-out, and every player scored until Dyego's miss with Barça's final shot.

To the semifinals!

That meant ElPozo had to score with their last shot to send the game to sudden death, but Miquel Feixas, who had replaced Dídac, was equal to it, sending his side into the semifinals.

Barça will be looking for a place in the cup final when they take on Levante on Saturday (9.00pm CET, on BarçaTV and BarçaTV +).
