Shocker Del Rey: 10-man Malaga stun Barcelona drawing 2-2 at the death

Barcelona 2 – Malaga 2 (Copa Del Rey, January 16, 2013) (Alternative highlights & longer highlights.) Alexis Sanchez blew a golden opportunity from two yards out in the opening exchanges. Malaga took a shock lead in the 24th minute when Thiago was robbed by Manuel Iturra on the edge of the box and the midfielder fired the visitors ahead. Lionel Messi equalised in a flash with a typically brilliant solo goal before Carles Puyol put Barca in the lead with a header from a set-play. 15 minutes from time Malaga were reduced to 10 men when Nacho Monreal saw red, but a minute from time Malaga silenced the Nou Camp as Ignacio Camacho half-volleyed home a leveller.
