There are plays that change matches and even competitions. Barcelona's path in the Copa del Rey won't be explained without Jasper Cillessen's save to Willian José, which would have meant the 1-1 this Thursday at Camp Nou. That play ended with a penalty to Barcelona ten second later. And Messi scored. If Pinto's penalty save in 2009 was key in the Copa del Rey 2009, maybe we will remember this save as one of the important moments of this year's competition.

Luis Enrique's team won two games in 90 minutes. The first ended at half time, after a goal from Denis Suárez and a solid defense from the locals.

The second match started at half time and everything was re-opened when Real Sociedad showed once again they are a very good football team. However, Barcelona was more clinical in front of goal and the match ended 5-2. Messi (penalty), Suárez, Arda Turan and Denis again scored the second half goals.
