First-leg 2-1 away win in Copa del Rey has always ended well for FC Barcelona

Each time Barça have achieved such a result in the first game of a two-legged cup tie on the road, they have qualified for the next round

FC Barcelona may have been disappointed to have conceded a late goal in Wednesday’s 2-1 quarter-final first-leg win over Athletic Club, but the scoreline should provide optimism for the blaugrana faithful. That is because every time the Catalans have won by that result in the first-leg of a Copa del Rey match away from home, they have always gone on to secure qualification to the next round.

Here is a look at the 13 previous occasions where Barça have qualified with a 2-1 away win in hand from the first leg:
