  • Espanyol vs Barcelona how and where to watch times TV online

Marco Asensio struck a last-gasp victor as Real Madrid edged to a 1-0 win at Leganes in the first leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final on Thursday.

Lionel Messi saw a penalty saved and Espanyol sub Oscar Melendo found the net with two minutes left to play as Barcelona lost their first game since August.

Earlier in the second half, Messi's spot-kick was turned away by former Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez.

Melendo scored the only goal of the game with two minutes remaining of a highly exciting derby tie, as Barcelona suffered their first defeat of the season and it was their (Espanyol) coach Quique Sanchez Flores, who masterminded it. Barcelona's unbeaten streak continued for five months.


The second leg of the encounter takes place at the Nou Camp on Thursday, 25 January, and the winners on aggregate will advance to the semis. From there, the game went in a direction we didn't want and we complicated things. "From the first minute, we will press high, we will try to create a lot of chances and hopefully the home support drives us on".

"We knew [a defeat] was going to arrive at some point", Busquets said.

The injuries are piling up for Ernesto Valverde as Samuel Umtiti, Paco Alcacer and Philippe Coutinho are still not ready to return to the Barcelona squad. "We were playing too defensively".

Costa struck for dominant Atletico on his first appearance since being sent off for wildly celebrating his last goal, in a 2-0 league win against Getafe, this one a superb first-time shot past Sevilla keeper Sergio Rico after the ball ricocheted to him in the 73rd minute.
