Barcelona Blasts Espanyol in Copa del Rey Play

It's just not that hard for the megabrands to use only eligible players in games like this.


Easily clearing that regulatory hurdle, Barcelona just easily brushed aside Espanyol, 4-1, on the first leg their of Copa del Rey pairing.

And Messi wasn't done showcasing himself. He had another treat for the paying customers:

Piqué never minds assuming a striker’s role, as is the case for most defenders.
