Incidencias

Partido de vuelta de los 1/16 de final de la Copa del Rey, disputado en el Camp Nou ante 76.398 espectadores. Se guardó un minuto de silencio en memoria de Josep Lluís Núñez, presidente del Barcelona entre 1978 y 2000.

The midfielder has barely featured all season long but shone in a stroll for the Catalans against the Segunda B side.

Munir El Haddadi broke the deadlock after 18 minutes when he rifled an effort into the top corner after some good interplay.

Then Denis stunned Cultural with a long range effort that zipped into the bottom corner.

Malcom nodded in Ivan Rakitic’s cross for No 3, just before half-time.

Although Josep Sene tapped in for the visitors it was just a consolation and Denis finished with ease for his fourth.

It was created by substitute Riqui Puig, who deftly nudged the ball through to the midfielder to tuck home.

Easy for 30-time winners Barca, and they will be in next Thursday’s draw as they bid to win the competition for a fifth year running.
