Barcelona has been released with a shock in the 16th final of the Spanish cup competition, the Copa del Rey. Only in extra time did the Catalans get past Intercity CF, a club from the third division (3-4). Remarkable: Oriol Soldevila scored three times for the home club. He was trained at… Barcelona.

Barcelona took the lead three times in regular time, three times the bonus was canceled. Aurajo put the visitors on roses in the fourth minute with a striking header. The Blaugrana thought they had their sheep on dry land and controlled the game thanks to a lot of possession.

After coffee we got a real cup match. Soldevila brought the home team alongside for the first time, after which Ousmane Dembélé again provided a visiting lead. There was Soldevila again, also when Raphina gave Barcelona the lead again in the final phase. Soldevila, a youth product of Barcelona and a former Spanish youth international, pushed the equalizer against the ropes for the third time.

The evening could not go wrong for the home crowd in Alicante, not even when Ansu Fati gave the Spanish top club the lead again in the first extra time. Everyone looked at Soldevila, but a fourth goal was no longer possible for the attacking midfielder. Barcelona to the next round but it flirted with disgrace.
