Barca send Real out of King's Cup
26 January 2012, 10:40
Spain - Barcelona dealt Real Madrid another body blow when they held off their arch rivals to draw 2-2 in a dramatic King's Cup quarterfinal second leg on Wednesday and send the holders out 4-3 on aggregate.
After Barca won last week's first leg in Madrid 2-1, Real came out swinging and probably had the better of the opening exchanges before Lionel Messi released substitute Pedro to open the scoring in the 43rd minute in front of almost 100 000 spectators at a raucous Nou Camp stadium.
Daniel Alves netted a spectacular second in first-half added time when he ran on to a loose ball and sent a thunderous drive arrowing past Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas into the top corner.
