Barca Advances With a Draw

Needing only a draw to advance in the Copa del Rey competition, today Barca squeezed past Atletico Bilbao with a 1 - 1 performance on the road at San Mames to advance to the semifinals of the tournament.

Eric Abdiel gave Barca its only goal of the match late in regular time at the 75th minute, and for a moment it seemed Barca would win the match straight up.  However, ten minutes later in the 85th minute, Fernando Llorente put Atletico even with the equalizer, and that was the match.

Barca, the previous winners of 25 Copa del Rey titles, will next face the winner of tomorrow's match between Getafe and Real Betis.

Visca el Barca !
