Malcom’s second-half strike on Wednesday means Barcelona and Real Madrid are level after the first leg of their Copa del Rey tie. Lucas Vazquez’s opener helped Los Blancos get away goal advantage.
Barcelona and Real Madrid played out a hard-fought 1-1 draw in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final at Camp Nou on Wednesday.
Malcom’s second-half goal cancelled out a sixth-minute opener from Lucas Vazquez and ensured there will be plenty to play for in the return fixture on February 27.
With Lionel Messi fit enough only for a place on the bench, the onus was on Barca to show they could cope without their talisman in the first of a difficult run of fixtures this month.
