Copa del Rey: Madrid giants win, Barca held


Celta Vigo 1-1 Barcelona

Barcelona were held to a 1-1 draw on their visit to Celta Vigo.

José Arnáiz opened the scoring in the 15th minute, but Pione Sisto equalised in the 31st.

Although Barcelona’s result was a disappointing one, they were boosted by the return of Ousmane Dembélé, who came off the bench on his return from a lengthy injury absence.

Numancia 0-3 Real Madrid

Real Madrid saw off Numancia with the help of a 60th minute sending off.

Gareth Bale put Los Blancos ahead in the 35th minute from the penalty spot. 25 minutes later, Pape Maly Diamanka was given a second yellow, leaving Numancia to contend against the European champions with just 10 men.

Two late goals from Zinedine Zidane’s side sealed the game as Isco scored an 89th minute penalty before Borja Mayoral put the cherry on top in the 91st minute.
