Copa del Rey: Neymar’s spot kick gives Barcelona first leg lead over Real Sociedad


Barcelona have taken a 1-0 lead over Real Sociedad in the first half of the first leg of their Copa del Rey quarterfinal tie. After getting fouled in the box, Neymar stepped up to the spot and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to open the scoring:

Barcelona have had their struggles from the spot this year, unable to decide on a dedicated penalty taker. Neymar got the chance this time and thankfully took care of business.

Sociedad have been a tough team for the Blaugrana in the past, even this year when they held them to a draw away from home. But Neymar has Barca in good shape to advance to the next round with an early away goal.
