Barcelona played host to Cordoba in the second leg of Copa del Rey action late Sunday night. With an aggregate score of 2-0 in Barca’s favor entering the game, the tie already looked determined.

Without Leo Messi, Xavi and others, Barcelona began with a squad made up of mostly reserves looking to fight for their place in the first team.

Barcelona began the game just as they finished their last one against Espanyol, with utter brilliance.

Thiago scored first after stealing a ball outside the box. David Villa added two beautiful strikes to signal his return. Alexis Sanchez also scored a brace, though his night was nowhere near brilliant.

All around, the entire Barcelona team was phenomenal. Every player put in a performance to be remembered, including some of the rising stars from the club.

With a final score of 5-0 Barcelona have now advanced on a 7-0 aggregate score and will face Malaga in the next round of the Copa del Rey.

With that being said, we will now take a look at some of biggest talking points from the beautiful Blaugrana victory.
