Barcelona beat Intercity in extra time

Barcelona struggled to advance in their Copa del Rey debut on Wednesday and needed extra time to beat third division Intercity 4-3.

Ansu Fati scored Barcelona’s winner in the 104th minute after the Catalan club took a 3-3 lead after regulation time.

Oriol Solde had a hat-trick for the locals in the southern city of Alicante.

Barcelona, ​​who played without some of their usual starters, took the lead after four minutes with goals from Ronald Araújo, Ousmane Dembele on 66 and Rafinha on 77. Solde scored on 59, 74 and 86 minutes.

“The cup is like that, we know it is not easy,” admitted Araújo. “It’s important to learn and correct mistakes.”

The duel was played shortly after a Spanish administrative court upheld the suspension of Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski for three matches in the Spanish league and for which he will miss Sunday’s clash against Atlético de Madrid. He did not include him in the lineup against Intercity.

Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid, Valencia and Real Betis did not play in the previous round as they are part of the Spanish Super Cup starting next week.

Madrid beat fourth division Caserno 1-0 on Tuesday.
