FC Barcelona 4-4 Benfica: Golden Cup exit on penalties
Barça come back from 4-1 down to take the quarter final into extra time, but end up losing the shootout
Barça have lost their Golden Cup quarter final to Benfica on penalties after the game ended 4-4 after two extra time periods.
It was a frustrating way for it all to end after they had done so well to come back from 4-1 down to force overtime. The Portuguese side led 3-0 before the blaugrana finally found the net after 31 minutes through Diogo Rafael but then Benfica went three ahead once again.
But a Joao Rodrigues penalty, and then goals from Nil Roca and Helder Nunes pulled things back to 4-2 in the most dramatic of fashion.
With no goals scored in the two overtime periods, the game went to a shootout and Benfica won that 3-2 to advance to the semi-finals.
