Like the rest of us, Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique both loved Barcelona’s Copa del Rey comeback win over Granada on Wednesday night.

The Catalan giants looked set for a disappointing exit but managed to turn the game around in dramatic fashion.

Late goals from Antoine Griezmann and Jordi Alba forced extra-time, and the visitors then went on to win 5-3 to book their place in the last four.

Pique took to Twitter with the message: “What a comeback. We’re in the semi-finals!”

Meanwhile, Puyol was happy to offer his congratulations and was impressed by his former team’s hunger and desire.

He wrote: “Congratulations Barcelona not for going through the tie but for the attitude, the character ... I have seen a hungry team. Visca Barça.”

Barca will now discover their semi-finals opponents on Friday. Sevilla and Levante are already through, while the final quarter-final sees Real Betis take on Athletic.
