Player ratings with the progress of the Blaugrana in the King’s Cup

Barcelona reached the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey for the first time since the 2020/21 season thanks to a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou.

Ousmane Dembele scored the only goal of the game early in the second half, with La Real reduced to 10 men before half-time when Bryce Mendes was sent off – the midfielder’s great challenge on Sergio Busquets was initially punished with a yellow card until the VAR. The tackle upgraded him to the red.

Barcelona were in control from the early stages, creating chances even before the red card. Robert Lewandowski even had the ball in the net, only to see an offside flag rule it out.

The match could have gone very differently, had Takefusa Kubo’s shot in the 30th minute been two inches less, with the score 0-0 at the time, but it hit the crossbar and avoided the danger.

Dembélé’s goal was felt, and compatriot Jules Conde shot him down the right, with the winger continuing to finish the ball into the near corner.

Barcelona hit the crossbar in the second half, with Jaffe hitting the crossbar. But, in the end, La Real might be wondering how things could have ended, with Alexander Sorloth missing a fantastic chance from just a few meters away, while Martin Zubemendi was denied a last-gasp save from Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
