BY foxsports • December 16, 2014

Pedro scored a hat-trick as Barcelona barely broke a sweat moving into the last-16 of the Copa del Rey with a crushing 8-1 win over Huesca.

The Spain international had netted in the 4-0 first-leg win and added three more alongside strikes from Sergi Roberto and Andres Iniesta as Barca went 5-0 up at the break.

Adriano, Adama and Sandro made it eight in the second half and while Carlos Hernandez grabbed a late consolation, Barca swatted aside the third-tier outfit 12-1 on aggregate.

Valencia twice fought back from a two-goal deficit on the night to progress 6-5 after a hectic 4-4 draw against Rayo Vallecano at the Mestalla.

Paco Alcacer put the home side ahead but goals from Jozabed, Alejandro Pozuelo and Jonathan Pereira turned the tie on its head at the break.

A Jorge Morcillo own goal made it level on aggregate but Adri Embarba restored Rayo's lead before Alcacer and Rodrigo sent Valencia through, with the latter being sent off in the last 10 minutes.

Fabian Orellana scored a late winner as Celta Vigo overturned a 2-1 first-leg deficit to beat second-tier Las Palmas 4-3 on aggregate.

Joaquin Larrivey and Santiago Mina had Celta ahead in the tie but Nauzet levelled things up before Aythami Artiles was sent off for the visitors.

Orellana then popped up two minutes into stoppage time to send Celta through.

In the night's other tie, Michel and Jonathan Zongo put Almeria a 2-0 up on the night and, while Damien Perquis replied for Real Betis, the Primera Division side went through 6-4 on aggregate.
