Barcelona beat Athetlic Bilbao 2-1 at the San Mames stadium to take the first-leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals.

Arda Turan started his fourth game and made his fifth appearance since making his debut against Espanyol in the same competition a fortnight ago.

Turan was directly involved in the opening goal providing a defence splitting pass that bypassed three opposition players to play Rakitic into acres of space to find Munir who slotted the ball into the back of the net.
