UE Cornella 0-2 Barcelona: Dembele, Braithwaite nets in extra-time as Barca miss two penalties
Barcelona book their passage into the next round of the Copa but they certainly made it hard for themselves. Pjanic and Dembele missed penalties in regulation time, meaning Koeman’s men had to play for another 30 minutes. Dembele atoned for his error with a powerful 92nd-minute drive, and Braithwaite sealed the deal at the death after some great play from Pedri. Unlike Real Madrid, Barca have avoided an upset in the cup!
Barca are back in action against Elche on Sunday, though they will be without Messi again due to his two-game ban. Cornella have far more modest visitors up next in the Segunda B – Prat.
