A comfortable victory sees FC Barcelona emerge as the winner against Barbastro. The 3-2 scoreline does not reflect the ease with which Barça managed to overcome their opponents in the Copa Del Ray. However, when all is said and done, winning was the only objective for Barcelona tonight.

Regardless of the scoreline or efficiency, the Catalan giants have secured their progression. Now beyond the Round of 32, Barcelona will next look to take on their opponents in the Round of 16. However, this win allowed Barça to potentially regain some of their confidence back.

Here is how the Barcelona players fared against Barbastro.

Inaki Pena: 6.0

Did not have much to do all game in all honesty. However, he was rather solid whenever he was called into action. On the other hand, he was also rather unfortunate to concede the goal that he did.

Hector Fort: 6.5

The young Spanish fullback did well to hold his ground with the first team. Despite being told to play as a left-back, opposite his more natural flank, the youngster did well to keep Barbastro at bay and provide attacking width as well. He was also the provider of the second assist with a great pass.

Ronald Araujo: 7.5

The Uruguayan was an absolute wall for Barbastro to overcome. His determination to stay on his target and continue breathing down the necks of his opponents had the opposition startled throughout the game.

Andreas Christensen: 6.5

The Danish defender did well by himself. However, unlike his teammates, his performance did give Barça some worry. He was also the first defender to be substituted in the game.

Jules Kounde: 7.0

With several fullbacks injured or unavailable, Jules Kounde had to once again be shifted to the right-back position. Yet, as he typically does whenever he is used as one, he provided quite the solid performance for Barcelona.

Oriol Romeu: 5.5

While Oriol Romeu started the game off well, his performance declined with time. Moreover, his decision-making and speed of making his decisions were both causing Barcelona some problems.

Fermin Lopez: 6.5

A dynamic performance from the youngster saw Barcelona dominate the midfield rather well. However, he did end up giving away a needless penalty near the end of the game and it caused some definite stress for Barcelona. Decent performance overall.

Frenkie De Jong: 8.0

Easily the most aware footballer on the field. Frenkie De Jong worked his magic through the field both offensively and defensively. His passes, interceptions, and reading of the game allowed Barça to play rather flawlessly at points in the game.

Joao Felix: 6.0

Another frustrating outing from the Portuguese forward sees him unable to have any potent involvement. However, despite his rather lethargic display at times, Felix continues to show moments that highlight his brilliance as a player.

Ferran Torres: 6.5

Typically the most vigilante attacker on the field, that version of Ferran Torres was nowhere to be found. Barbastro seemed quite keen on playing as compactly as possible, and that seemed to work especially well against Torres in the middle.

Raphinha: 9.0

Unlike his usually frustrating outings, Raphinha was actually quite effective this time around. Constantly creating chances, thwarting down the right flank, and connecting well with his teammates. He managed to score a goal with a well-timed run and also got a good assist to his name.

Inigo Martinez: N/A

Was taken back off merely moments after coming on.

Robert Lewandowski: N/A

Despite not being on for too long, Robert Lewandowski added the third goal to Barça’s name. It came through a well-placed penalty that was taken in a rather composed fashion.

Sergi Roberto: N/A

Not enough time or influence on the game to warrant a rating.

Ilkay Gundogan: N/A

Not enough time or influence on the game to warrant a rating.

Vitor Roque: N/A

Not enough time or influence on the game to warrant a rating.
