Neymar wins first leg for Barcelona, Atletico cruise in Copa del Rey

Posted: 20 January 2017 Time: 00:43

A Neymar penalty handed Barcelona a 1-0 away win in the first leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final against Real Sociedad.

The Brazilian striker netted in the 21st minute after he was fouled in the area and took the spot-kick himself.

Barca had all their first-choice attackers on the pitch but could not add to the scoreline in a low-action affair at Estadio Anoeta.

Luis Enrique’s side controlled the possession and made most of the inroads but could not find a second away-goal. They will look to finish off the job at the Nou Camp in the second leg.

In Thursday night’s other quarter-final clash Atletico Madrid eased past Eibar 3-0 at the Vicente Calderon thanks to goals from Antoine Griezmann, Angel Correa and Kevin Gameiro.
