Barcelona vs Real Sociedad HIGHLIGHTS: Copa Del Rey HIGHLIGHTS: BAR 1-0 RSO, Barcelona defeated Real Sociedad 1-0 to advance to the 2022–23 Copa del Rey quarterfinals. The game was close throughout despite Real Sociedad being reduced to 10 men just before halfway. The winning goal was scored by Ousmane Dembele, who deserved it after an outstanding effort. Brais Mendez, a midfielder for Real Sociedad, was dismissed after receiving a straight red card, although Real Sociedad continued to pose a threat in the second half. Follow Copa Del Rey HIGHLIGHTS on InsideSport.IN

The 4-4-2 configuration that Robert Lewandowski and Ousmane Dembele utilised to defeat Real Madrid in the Supercopa final is once again used by Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez. Lewandowski and fellow forward Ferran Torres have one more La Liga game left to complete their suspensions, but they are both still eligible for selection in the Copa del Rey. Torres is initially a reserve.

Additionally, Frenkie De Jong and Ronald Araujo are back after missing the La Liga triumph against Getafe last weekend. If there is a point of contention, it is that Marc-Andre ter Stegen replaces backup Inaki Pena, who has been the Copa del Rey starting goalkeeper thus far.

Playmaker David Silva will not participate after suffering an injury during practise the day before the game. Manager Imanol Barrenetxea loses two of his most crucial attacking components along with Mikel Merino’s unavailability. Martin Zubimendi, a holding midfielder for La Real, will start on defence after missing their previous La Liga triumph due to suspension. Moahmed Ali-Cho, Alex Sola, Ander Guevara, Jon Pacheco, Andoni Gorosabel, and forward Umar Sadiq are just a few of the players the team is already missing.

FC Barcelona played well in the first half against a competitive but uneasy Real Sociedad. Brais Méndez has also seen red, leaving his squad with ten players. Both teams had periods of possession and periods of defence in the opening minutes of the game, which was played with vigour. Barça eventually gained control, though, and put Imanol’s men under control there. La Real has had a lot of difficulties attacking, however they have chained some against.

With a shot to the crossbar within the area, Kubo actually had the clearest opportunity, although it was a unique incident. Dembélé has been the main arrival and opportunity for Barça. The opening goal has also been surrounded by De Jong, Gavi, or Pedri. Before the interval, Brais Méndez was sent off for a heavy tackle on Busquets that included a plant. The referee made this decision after seeing the action on the screen and being alerted by the VAR.

Lewandowski was outraged with the referee and Real Sociedad was upset with Lewandowski, making for a heated contest, but the red card appeared to knock the wind out of the game right away. Real Sociedad hit the crossbar, but the second half will undoubtedly see them play more defensively. Barcelona performed well to reach the penalty area, but the last attempt was off-target. Despite the 11 shots, Real Sociedad goalkeeper Alex Remiro has not been put to the test.

In order to begin the final quarter, Sociedad switched to a 5-4-0 shape. But with a very early goal, Barcelona cut short their opportunity to put their plan into action. Ousmane Dembélé was set up by Jules Kounde on the break, and the Frenchman shot a rocket goal off the hands of the goalkeeper to give the Blaugrana the lead.

After that boring spell, the home team regained control of the ball and nearly increased its lead to 2-0 when Gavi’s shot hit the crossbar. In order to score a second goal, Xavi Hernandez made his squad aggressively offensive in the waning minutes.

When Marc-André ter Stegen mishandled the ball and had to make an outstanding save to stop it, they almost conceded a very late equaliser. Ter Stegen needed to make one more outstanding save to preserve the clean sheet and earn the victory as Sociedad pushed everyone forward in an effort to force extra time.
