King's Cup: Dembélé sends Barça to the semis


At 11 against 10 throughout the second period, FC Barcelona dismissed Real Sociedad (1-0) this Wednesday, in the quarter-finals of the Spanish Cup.

FC Barcelona continues its good start to the year 2023 and wins its ticket for the last four of the Spanish Cup thanks to this 1-0 victory against Real Sociedad.

Led by a very leggy Ousmane Dembélé, Barça dominated from the start of the match but lacked realism in the last gesture, like the chances of Robert Lewandowski and Frenkie De Jong in the first period.

Xavi's men even scared each other when Take Kubo hit Ter Stegen's bar half an hour into the game, but a midfielder from Sociedad finally helped the Blaugrana.

In the 40th minute, Brais Méndez was sent off after a violent tackle on Busquets and left his teammates outnumbered.

Barça scores but gets scared...

In the second half Ousmane Dembélé opened the scoring with a fine pass from Jules Koundé.

This goal will allow Barça to calmly manage their match but once again, realism will not be there and the leaders of the Spanish championship will once again be scared.

In the 60th minute Norwegian striker Alexander Sørloth misses the inevitable and misses the equalizer when he was alone against the empty goal.

In the final minutes, a bad pass from Ter Stegen gave Navarro another fine equalizer, but the Barça goalkeeper made up for his mistake with a fine save.

Xavi can therefore celebrate his 43rd birthday with a qualification in the semi-finals but will have to improve the offensive efficiency of his attackers.
