Dembele leads Barcelona to the semi-finals of the King’s Cup

Barcelona qualified for the semi-finals of the Spanish Football Cup by defeating its guest, Real Sociedad, 1-0, scored by Frenchman Ousmane Dembele, on Wednesday, at the “Spotify Camp Nou” stadium in Barcelona in the quarter-finals.

The Basque club played with ten players since the 40th minute, following a direct expulsion of Bryce Mendes after he ran over Sergio Busquets’ foot.

On the day of its coach Xavi Hernandez’s 43rd birthday, Barcelona took advantage of the numerical shortage with the start of the second half, and Dembélé scored the only goal of the match after he penetrated into the area on the right side and hit a beautiful ball in the narrow corner near (52).

The Catalan club, the record holder in the number of competition titles (31), the last of which was in 2021, tightened its control over the match without succeeding in doubling its progress.

And German international goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen saved Barcelona from resorting to extension after he made a massive save in the third minute of stoppage time on substitute John-Andre Olassagaty’s shot.

Sociedad, who was missing playmaker David Silva and Mikel Merino, did not rise to the level that enabled him to finish third in the league this season and achieved a series of seven consecutive victories in all competitions, before Barcelona ended it on Wednesday.

The Polish Barcelona striker, Robert Lewandowski, again confronted the referee, Gil Manzano, who was booed, after he gave him a red card against Osasuna in his last match last November, before stopping to play in the World Cup Qatar 2022, which led to the suspension of “Leva” for three matches. It is a penalty he is still applying in the league, which is led by the Catalan club, three points behind Real Madrid II.

Barcelona remained on the right path towards its second title in the era of Xavi, after finally winning the Spanish Super Cup at the expense of Real Madrid 3-1 in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, earlier this month.

Osasuna continued his surprises in the competition and joined Barcelona to the semi-finals by defeating his guest Sevilla 2-1 after extension (regular time 1-1).

Osasuna stripped Real Betis of the title when it beat them on penalties in the final price.

Osasuna was on his way to settling the match in its original time when it advanced with the goal of Chimi Avila in the 71st minute, but Moroccan international striker Youssef Al-Nusairi, who entered in the 77th minute, equalized for the Andalusian team in the fifth minute of stoppage time, forcing the extra two halves.

And Ososana succeeded in booking his card, thanks to a goal by the other Moroccan international, Abdel Samad Al-Zalzouli, who was loaned from Barcelona, ​​​​in the 99th minute.

The quarter-final round concludes Thursday with Real Madrid’s matches against its neighbor Atletico, and Valencia, the runner-up, with Athletic Bilbao.
