Barcelona were held to a 2-2 draw by third division Alcoyano at the Nou Camp on Wednesday but advanced to the last 16 of the Copa del Rey courtesy of their 3-0 first-leg victory.

Santiago Ezquerro put Frank Rijkaard´s team in control with two goals in the first 10 minutes but the underdogs responded well after the break and secured a memorable draw through a Jorge Perona penalty and a last-minute equaliser from substitute Carlos Arnau.

Real Madrid left it late but clinched their place in the next round thanks to a 2-1 win over third division Alicante to edge the overall tie 3-2. Guti netted the decisive last-gasp winner for the Spanish champions.
