Barcelona cruised past Celta Vigo to confirm their spot in Quarter-finals of the Copa Del Rey after a scintillating display scoring 5 goals to nothing. A day earlier, Real Madrid too qualified for the Quarter-finals, but fans were not happy to see their team play a draw against a team in the Segunda division.
Lionel Messi scored two goals and provided a world-class assist to Jordi Alba, before being substituted by Ousmane Dembele. Jordi Alba has assisted seven goals to Lionel Messi, including two against Celta Vigo earlier in the day. Coutinho was in the stands to watch this heroic display of the team, he has recently joined.
Also, Luis Suarez got into the scoresheet late in the first half. And, Ousamane Dembele got the assist to his name as Rakitic headed his corner to score the fifth goal of the night.
Fans on Twitter went crazy after a great first half display from Lionel Messi and Barcelona.

This Barcelona team is really getting unstoppable as they haven’t lost since the Super Cup, and the inclusion of Dembele and Coutinho in the team is absolutely going to strengthen the team. Barcelona has had 20 clean sheets out of 28 matches they have played, while Real Madrid is having hard times defending in front of the goal. Barcelona is 16 points ahead of Real Madrid in La Liga and is predicted to lift the title this year. Barcelona is playing against Chelsea in the February in the first leg of Round of 16, and Real Madrid is playing a strong French side PSG.
Will it be a year without a trophy for Zidane and Real Madrid?
