Barcelona players rating in Granada win with Griezmann 10, Umtiti 2

Despite being minutes away from crashing out of the Copa del Rey with a 2-0 defeat, Barcelona came roaring back to claim a 5-3 win over Granada after extra time to progress to the semi-finals.

Ronald Koeman had identified the competition as Barcelona's best chance at silverware this season, and their hopes remain alive after an exciting evening.

What did you make of the players' performances? Have your say by voting below.

Samuel Umtiti — 2

The centre-back gave away the ball when Barcelona conceded the first goal and then got outrun by 35-year-old Roberto Soldado in the second conceded goal. Ronald Koeman subbed Umtiti off early and it was definitely the right call.

Francisco Trincao — 5

The Portuguese got his rare chance from the start but crumbled when it mattered most, missing a big chance in the first half and hitting the crossbar in the second. Other than that, Trincao was decent but nothing to shout about.

Antoine Griezmann — 10

The 29-year-old has been nothing but brilliant lately, and against Granada he came in clutch, scoring two goals and assisting Jordi Alba's strike. Besides, Griezmann was good in possession and helped defensively when needed.

Leo Messi — 9

The comeback would've been impossible without Messi's brilliance, as Leo was heavily involved in three of Barca's four goals of the night. The Argentine was a constant threat throughout the game and came really close to scoring several times, even hitting the post.

Frenkie de Jong — 8.5

Frenkie played in three different positions against Granada, switching from a central midfielder to a centre-back and to a pivot throughout the game. What's really impressive is that he was flawless in all three spots. Not to mention that it was the Dutchman who scored the winning goal.

Others: Ter Stegen — 5, Roberto — 4, Araujo — 6, Alba — 8.5, Busquets — 6, Pedri — 7.5, Dest — 5, Dembele — 7.5, Braithwaite — 5, Puig — 7, Lenglet — n/a.
