Madrid:

Spanish soccer giant Barcelona whitewashed third-tier Huesca 4-0 in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey.

Ivan Rakitic opened the scoring for Barcelona in the 12th minute Wednesday by a free kick which flied into the top left corner beyond Huesca goalkeeper Daniel Jimenez's reach, reports Xinhua.

Iniesta, who returned from an injury sustained in his team's 1-3 loss at Real Madrid Oct 25, netted four minutes later after he latched onto Rakitic's pass.

Pedro Rodriguez scored Barca's third as he unleashed a powerful shot inside the near post in the 39th before Rafinha deflected his shot off Alex Garcia into goal for Barcelona's fourth in the 72nd.

Also Wednesday, Atletico Madrid swept to a 3-0 victory over third-tier L'Hospitalet. Malaga drew 1-1 with Deportivo La Coruna. Granada beat Andalusian rival Cordoba 1-0. Sevilla routed Sabadell 5-1.
