Last season, Barcelona became the first side to reach a fifth consecutive Copa del Rey final in history. This season, they can better that. If they defend their title, they will become the first side to win a fifth consecutive title.

After the first leg in Levante, progressing in the tournament was far from a certainty. Especially after Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, and Sevilla failed to win their games earlier in the day. But Barcelona eased past Levante, and are through to the quarter-finals.

Now Barcelona have a realistic chance of winning all trophies this season, and they have won the Spanish Super Cup already.

The LaLiga and the Champions League will undoubtedly be their priority, but the Copa del Rey is no minnow. It is the oldest competition in Spain, after all.
