COPA DEL REY: Barcelona and Real Madrid play out entertaining one all draw (2)

Copa del rey defending champion Barcelona on Wednesday played out a 1 – 1 draw against bitter rivals Real Madrid in the first leg semi-final fixture of the 2018/2019 Copa del rey campaign at the Camp Nou.

 The game featured two of Europe's top sides howbeit without the star rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo which has been a characterized the fixture in recent times. In their absence however, impeccable display of skills from the forward Vinicius Jr. (18) and  Barcelona Malcolm (21) lit up the Nou Camp.

Goals from Lucas Vazquez in the 6th minute of the game and an equalizer by Malcom in the 57th minute from a rebound off Luis Suarez's shot set both teams level ahead of the return leg on February 27.

This will be viewed as an improvement by Real Madrid from the last meeting between these sides which saw Barcelona run away 5-1 winners.
