    Barcelona 7-0 Hercules (agg 8-1)

    There goes the final whistle and Barcelona progress into the last-16 of Copa del Rey with a thumping victory over third tier Hercules.

    Thanks for joining us.

  2. GOAL - Barcelona 7-0 Hercules

    Arda Turan

    A hat-trick for the Turkish midfielder...and what a goal it is.

    Hercules make a mess of clearing the corner, giving it away to Arda Turan, who duly punishes them.

    The former Atletico Madrid man is on the angle of the box, takes a touch before curling a glorious strike into the far corner of the net.

    The best of the lot and it is magnificent seven for Luis Enrique's men.


    Barcelona 6-0 Hercules (agg 7-1)

    Hercules goalkeeper Ivan Buigues denies Paco Alcacer again with another superb save, diving high to his right.

    Corner to Barcelona...

  4. GOAL - Barcelona 6-0 Hercules

    Arda Turan

    And it is six!

    Hercules goalkeeper Ivan Buigues is so unlucky after making a stunning save to deny Paco Alcacer's close-range header.

    The ball breaks to Arda Turan inside the box and the Turkish midfielder rockets a finish into the roof of the net.

    Arda Turan celebrates

    Barcelona 5-0 Hercules (agg 6-1)

    Five minutes remaining, can Barcelona hit Hercules for six?


    Barcelona 5-0 Hercules (agg 6-1)

    Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic fancies another, drilling a low shot from 30 yards out, but Hercules goalkeeper Ivan Buigues is equal to it.

    Eight minutes remaining.

  7. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 5-0 Hercules (agg 6-1)

    Lucas Digne almost flukes one into the top corner as he gets his cross wrong, which drifts narrowly wide of the far post.

  8. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 5-0 Hercules (agg 6-1)

    Ohh no. Jose Manuel Rojas has a free header, but cannot find the target.

    He was unmarked in front of the net and misses the chance of a goal he could have told his grand kids about.


    Barcelona 5-0 Hercules (agg 6-1)

    Sublime technique from Denis Suarez in the penalty area, playing the ball from right to left foot, before getting past his man on the outside.

    He plays the ball into the path of Paco Alcacer six yards out, but this time the Barcelona striker's shot is blocked.

    Alcacer is just getting greedy now.

  10. GOAL - Barcelona 5-0 Hercules

    Paco Alcacer

    Yessss, he has done it.

    It has taken him five months and 12 games, but Paco Alcacer finally has a goal in a Barcelona shirt.

    Rafinha breaks into the area and his cross deflects off a Hercules defender, looping into the area and onto the head of the former Valencia man two yards out and he can nod into an open net.

    Alcacer looks to the heavens, you can see the relief on his face. The Barcelona players pile in to congratulate him.

    Paco Alcacer is congratulated

    Barcelona 4-0 Hercules (agg 5-1)

    Barcelona playing the ball from right to left, before playing it back. The Hercules players are running on empty now, but there is still 20 minutes left to play.

  12. Post update

    Barcelona 4-0 Hercules (agg 5-1)

    Arda Turan meets Lucas Digne's cross at the back post, but the header lacks power and Hercules goalkeeper Ivan Buigues can collect.

  13. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 4-0 Hercules (agg 5-1)

    Ahh, just not happening for Paco Alcacer.

    Midfielder Andre Gomes slides a ball to Denis Suarez on the left edge of the box.

    The French plays a sumptuous cross towards Alcacer three yards out, but the Barcelona striker is unable to get on the end of it.

  14. Post update

    Barcelona 4-0 Hercules (agg 5-1)

    Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti is caught on the face by a left elbow from Checa.

    The referee misses the incident so the Hercules player gets away with it.

    Umtiti is not happy and rightly so.

  15. Post update

    Barcelona 4-0 Hercules (agg 5-1)

    One man who needs a goal is Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer.

    He signed from Valencia in the summer for £25.5m but has failed to find the net in 11 appearances so far.

    If he can't get one against this lot, there's no hope for him.

  16. GOAL - Barcelona 4-0 Hercules

    Arda Turan

    He made the last one but gets on the scoresheet now.

    An inch-perfect cross is whipped in from the right into the six yard box and Arda Turan stoops to head in Barcelona's fourth goal of the night.

    How many more can they get?

    Arda Turan celebrates
  17. GOAL - Barcelona 3-0 Hercules


    Smashed in.

    It is brilliantly made by Turkish midfielder Arda Turan, whose nifty footwork takes three Hercules defenders out of the game.

    The ball breaks to Rafinha on the edge of the area and the Barca man takes aim before rifling a left-footed drive low into the net.

    Rafael Alcantara celebrates

    Barcelona 2-0 Hercules (agg 3-1)

    Oh hello.

    Hercules earn their first corner of the game, which is flicked on by Jose Manuel Rojas, but it drifts out of play.

    Disappointing for the visitors.

  19. KICK-OFF

    Who knew former France striker David Trezeguet used to play for Hercules??

    How the Spanish third tier side could do with his goalscoring prowess this evening.
