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.
