Barcelona 3-0 Levante: Ousmane Dembele & Lionel Messi score as Barca progress

Barcelona

Barcelona overturned a 2-1 first-leg deficit to beat Levante 4-2 and reach the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.

Two fortuitous Ousmane Dembele goals in the first half put Barca – cup winners in the past four seasons – ahead on aggregate at the Nou Camp.

Lionel Messi tucked in a third, his seventh goal in five games.

However, Barca could be thrown out of the competition amid claims that they fielded an ineligible player in the first leg.

Levante have said they will lodge a complaint to the Spanish federation because Barca defender Juan Brandariz should have been serving a suspension after receiving a yellow card while playing for Barcelona’s B team in the Segunda B division.

Barcelona say a change in the rules, made in November, meant the suspension does not apply in the Copa del Rey.

Real Madrid were expelled from the competition in 2015 for fielding Denis Cheryshev when he was an ineligible.
