The FC Barcelona went out more dominador that never to the New The Cármenes and drowned to the Granada during the first half hour of party. Ronald Koeman left clear with his alignment that wanted the Glass of Rey and put in liza to almost all his usual headlines, including to Marc-André ter Stegen. Go out with the best had his effect in the first stretch of the party, although unfortunately it did not translate in the marker.
The culés could mark in several occasions in the first 30 minutes of game, but went back to fail the puntería. Ronald Araújo warned with an arrival after a fault in which the charrúa asked penalti, but the clearest opportunity of the Barcelona in the first time was a double arrival of Leo Messi and of Francisco Trincao. The '10' tested to Aarón with a shot crossed and the rebound arrived to the Portuguese, that of volley tried it, but that went back to toparse with the goalkeeper.
After this clear double occasion in the minute 8, the Barcelona did not leave to try it and to look for put it rival. The ones of Koeman scared to the nazarís and no ler allowed to go out of his area during a lot of minutes. Nevertheless, this command did not translate in clear opportunities and little by little the ones of Diego Martínez were removing this command of on. In fact, the venues upset to Ter Stegen with a head butt of Doors that was diverted.
The barcelonistas followed to the control, but the Granada every time felt less uncomfortable, as it showed in the minute 34. In spite of this, Leo Messi could mark of fault with a launching sensacional to the that arrived with a beautiful palomita Aarón. But no a lot after this arrival, the grenadian went to take advantage of an unforgivable error of Samuel Umtiti in exit of balloon to advance in the marker against all prognosis.
The central French wanted to go out playing and failed until twice in the delivery until losing the ball against a Soro that did not go to fail in the pass of the death. The ex of the Saragossa saw to Kenedy in mouth of goal and the Brazilian executed to the Barça and put the 1-0 for surprise of all the presents. A so much unexpected to the that wanted to answer the Barcelona in the last minutes of the first time, but the Catalans did not have luck in the last metres and went by behind to the rest.
Umtiti 'Gave' another goal and the Barça had to row
After the intermediate, the team blaugrana had to show that the so much of Kenedy had been an accident, but Ormtiti went back to leave to thanks to Ter Stegen and to all his team at all more begin the second part. The French left eat the toast by Soldier in the centre of the field and the forward, after a long driving after a big pass of Montoro, defined to perfection in front of the German archer in the one against one.
The action of the 2-0 was a despropósito absolute of the Barça, that allowed that the Valencian tip remained absolutely only driving from midfield. A very grave error that portrayed to 'Big Sam', but also to the rest of his mates by his abysmal tactical disposal. To contracorriente, from this moment, the culés had to row and row against a Granada that shut backwards and defended with nails and teeth.
In spite of being in a situation limit, the Barcelona went with everything up. Unfortunately, it seemed not being the night of the Barcelona, that had until two very clear occasions for recortar distances. First it was Messi the one who went back to toparse with the guardameta of the nazarís, that completed a performance sensacional and that went back to save to his with a big hand. Shortly after it was Trincao the one who, after receiving of the '10', commanded the balloon to the crossbar with a big shot with the right that deserved the goal.
The Barça tightened and attained to shut to the Granada, but topó one and again against the solid grenadian defence. And when there was not a defender to cut the attempt of the Catalans, appeared the goalkeeper. Aarón, that was being the best of the grenadian, in the minute 84, when the culés more apreteban, went back to save to his with a spectacular stopped after a very good Chilean of Antoine Griezmann.
Traced back heroic of the Barça and new extention
Precisely the '7' went back to have it a minute afterwards, but his shot was diverted after a big centre of Ousmane Dembélé, that went in by Trincao. The extreme was precisely the one who went back to have it by enésima time in the party, but his powerful shot with the left-handed went against the crossbar. But so much it goes the cántaro to the source that at the end broke , and in the 88 Griezmann gave hopes to the Barça with a shot 'in extremis' that finish putting in own Aarón.
The ones of Koeman believed in the traced back and looked for the heroic with illusion and confidence. Messi, that was in all, had it again and with a big his diagonal arrived the third stick of the Barcelona in the crash. The tie was to shot and the blaugrana llevana long deserving it. At the end, in the discount, A left of Griezmann served so that Jordi Alba did the impossible and put the 2-2 for ecstasy of all the barcelonismo.
A goal more than deserved of the Barça, that looked for the 2-3 and that it could finish losing in the last minute by fault of his hunger. Luis Suárez won the back of Araújo and remained only in front of Ter Stegen, but the Colombian crossed too much the shot and the barcelonistas saved and the party went to the extention. An addition that the Catalans won in the field and that kept alive the dream of the Glass of Rey.
Hit in the table of the Barcelona in the extention
The Barcelona did not go down the rhythm in the addition and finish giving him the turn to the marker in the 100 thanks to a golazo of head of Griezmann, that went the big protagonist of the culés. The French finished at the end of the meshes a centre of Alba and seemed to put to his team in the 'semis'. Unfortunately, the Granada reacted and in the played following Dest left win the back, displaced mildly to Neva and the referee pitó penalti in spite of the protest of the players.
The contact seemed very slight, too much to be punished, but Sánchez Martínez did not go to see the action to the screen and the VAR washed the hands. Fede Vico converted the controversial maximum penalty and went back to empatar the crash. Luckily, the Barça did not go to rack and ruin and showed to have personality and spare quality as to win this Glass. Already in the second part of the extention, Frenkie of Jong took advantage of a bad refuse of Aarón to put the 3-4.
But the barcelonistas wanted to more and went to by the fifth in spite of the tiredness and of the risk that supposed this. Of this form, another big pass of Griezmann was to stop to Alba, that of a spectacular volley beat to the goalkeeper nazarí to sentence the quarter-finals. A victory more than deserved of a Barcelona that threw of epic to reach the semifinals of this Glass of Rey.
