With history on their side and a momentum-turning
comeback victory in the Copa del Rey having thrust FC Barcelona back on
course, the Catalans hope to keep the wind at their backs and make up
for lost ground when they face UD Las Palmas of the Canary Islands on Saturday at Camp Nou.
FC Barcelona cruised into the last 16 of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday after a 7-0 win (8-1 on aggregate) over Hércules at the Camp Nou., Goals from Arda Turan (3), Paco Alcacer, Lucas Digne, Ivan Rakitic and Rafinha did the damage for the Blaugranes whilst visitors were unable to grab a consolation in the night.
