Messi shines as Barcelona rout Celta in Copa del Rey

Demebele, who joined Barça in summer for a fee of €105m rising to €145m, appeared from the bench for the final half hour of Thursday night's 5-0 Copa del Rey rout of Celta Vigo.

"The first half was extraordinary", said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde.

Barca number 10, Lionel Messi was on fire for his club as he scored two goals for his club in the 13th and 15th minute of the match.

Barcelona put on a real show at Camp Nou on Thursday as they ran the riots against Celta Vigo last night.

The France global has not played since suffering the problem in a 2-2 home draw against Celta Vigo on December 2.

"It's a luxury to have him in the team", Alba told Gol Television.


Valverde took the chance to take off Messi, Andres Iniesta and Gerard Pique after the break, with the fifth goal eventually arriving in the final minute when Rakitic headed home Ousmane Dembele's corner. Having been teed-up by Alba for both his goals, the five-time FIFA Player of the Year returned the favour in the 28th minute with a lovely curling pass and the attacking full-back got to the ball before Sergio to prod it into the net.

Sevilla were comfortable 4-1 aggregate winners over Cadiz of La Liga 1|2|3 in the last round but will face a much tougher test against an Atleti side who also had things their own way in the last 16, beating third tier Lleida Esportiu 7-0.

Wissam Ben Yedder, after 31 minutes, and Joaquin Correa in the 54th minute, were on target for Vincenzo Montella's team.

Zinedine Zidane's Real laboured to a 2-2 draw with Numancia on Wednesday to progress to the quarter-finals 5-2 on aggregate.

But on both occasions, their modest visitors fought back thanks to a brace from Guillermo on the stroke of half-time and then after 82 minutes.

Moroccan worldwide Nabil El Zhar scored the crucial away goal for mid-table Leganes on the half-hour mark.
