Barça Lassa 4-2 Noia Freixenet: Onwards to the semis

Caldes await in the penultimate round of the cup following a hard fought victory

Barça Lassa beat Noia Freixenet 4-2 at the Olímpic in Reus to advance to the last four of the Copa del Rey, a trophy they are chasing for a fourth consecutive season. Nil Roca scored twice and Joao Rodrigues and Pablo Álvarez got the others.

After breaking the deadlock on the quarter hour and adding a second two minutes after, the blaugrana were always ahead though not necessarily in complete control of a gripping encounter. When Esteller got Noia back to 3-2, it was time to get more serious than ever and the game was not really decided until a direct free from Pablo Álvarez found the net.

The quarters safely negotiated, next up is the semi final against Caldes on Saturday at 8.00pm CET.
