Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez has issued what could be interpreted as an ultimatum over his future after scoring twice in Wednesday night's Copa del Rey win over Cultural Leonesa, hinting that he needs more regular playing time if he is to stay.

Sevilla also struggled against third tier Villanovense before going through 1-0 thanks to Andre Silva's goal early in the second half, although there were some nervous moments for fans in the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium as a late goal for the minnows would have seen them through on away goals.

The injury will mean he misses the club's Champions League clash with Tottenham on Tuesday at the Nou Camp.

RIO DE JANEIRO: Argentine legend Diego Maradona was a better footballer than the country's modern-day idol Lionel Messi, according to Pele.

"I felt very good on the pitch". "As far as I'm concerned, Maradona was one of the best players ever", Pele said in an interview with the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper. "Much better." Said Pele.

Leading 1-0 from the first leg, the hosts came close to conceding the opening goal when Adrian Mancebo's shot was saved by Jasper Cillessen. Barca's other goalscorers were Munir El Haddadi and Malcom. The third goal came in the 44th minute, when Malcom headed in a cross from Ivan Rakitic.

Spanish global Denis Suarez bagged a double as Barca beat third-tier Leonesa 4-1 to progress 5-1 on aggregate.
