Barcelona faced off against AD Ceuta in the Copa del Rey earlier tonight as they looked to earn a good result on the road. The Catalan giants made a solid start to the contest and scored the opening goal in the 41st minute when Raphinha found the back of the net. Barcelona went into the half-time interval 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Robert Lewandowski scored in the 50th minute before Ansu Fati killed the game off in the 70th minute. Franck Kessie got his name on the scoresheet just seven minutes later before Lewandowski scored again in the 90th minute. The match finished with Xavi’s men earning a dominant 4-0 win away from home.
