Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde: Congratulations to Espanyol; I didn't see Cillessen missile


Oscar Melendo scored the only goal of the game, which also saw Lionel Messi miss a penalty for the visitors at Cornella El-Prat.

"I'm not the one who should rail against that issue", said Pique.

"I've been part of this project for a year and a half, we've picked up 80 points during this time, we're in the quarter-finals, we've beaten Barcelona and the fans are excited".

It's the first of three matchups in a few-week span between the two sides, with Barcelona hosting the second leg on January 25 before Espanyol hosts a league match on February 4. The visitors got a penalty after an hour when Esteban Granero fouled Sergio Roberto in the penalty box.

Melendo netted the victor with a low shot from the middle of the area after a well-timed pass by Marc Navarro.
