With the Copa del Rey quarter final second leg against La Real just 16 minutes old, Denis Suárez was possibly a surprise player to finish off a very Barcelona move.

Commanding start in the Copa quarter

It was a game that Real Sociedad needed to win following their 0-1 defeat at the Anoeta in San Sebastian last week. But with only 16 minutes on the clock, up-stepped Denis Suárez to fire in Barcelona's opener to put them two goals ahead on aggregate and in commanding position to qualify for the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey.

The goal, when it came was lovely, and involved the expected dangermen from Luis Enrique's starting XI. Neymar collected the ball out on the left and within just a few brief seconds it found its way into the path of the onrushing midfielder, Denis, via the touches of Messi and Luis Suárez.

For those that didn't see the goal, it looked a bit like this...Neymar, Messi, Suárez...then Denis!

Playing uphill at the Camp Nou

The early advantage immediately gave the home side the extra cushion they were looking for and the pace of the game, generally dictated by the Blaugrana, slowed. The task for La Real didn't change drastically, knowing that scoring two would be enough to take them through on goal difference.
