FC Barcelona drew 2-2 against the defending Spanish Cup Champions Real Madrid at Camp Nou last night. This was enough for Pep Guardiola’s side to progress to the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey, as they edged out the holders after winning in Bernabéu 1-2 last week (4-3 aggregate)
Barca went in 2-0 up at half-time thanks to goals from Pedro and a stunning goal from Dani Alves in the remaining minutes, but a second half fightback that produced goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema just fell short for Jose Mourinho‘s team.

Neither side could find the goal in the dying moments, and it ended all square on the night and 4-3 on aggregate to FC Barcelona, who will face Valencia FC or Levante in the semi-finals of the Spanish Cup
Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos was sent off for a second yellow card and FC Barcelona lost Iniesta and Alexis Sanchez on injury. Alexis will be out 1-2 weeks with shoulder injury, and Iniesta will be out 2-3 weeks with hamstring strain.
