Barcelona got their Copa del Rey title defence off to a flying start with a 3-0 win away to third-tier Alaves.

David Villa fired Barca ahead on 40 minutes when his strike crashed off the crossbar and over the line before Andres Iniesta added breathing space shortly after half-time.

Cesc Fabregas ensured Barca would take a healthy advantage to the Nou Camp in next month's return leg with a third late on.

Valencia also beat Segunda Division B opposition as they cast Llagostera aside 2-0 at Estadi Municipal.

After the hosts initially held firm, Jonas headed in from a Daniel Parejo cross on the stroke of half-time.

Nelson Valdez managed to get on the end of a Parejo delivery to wrap up the scoring on 68 minutes.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
