Though Real Madrid looked as if they might turn things around early in the second leg of their Copa del Rey quarterfinal against Barcelona, it was Barca who scored first (and second) to add to their lead. Lionel Messi slipped a pass to a wide open Pedro as the Real defenders converged on him, setting up a relatively easy goal.
Even as an observer, it felt like a crushing moment for Real -- a theory that Cristiano Ronaldo confirmed with his stompy show of frustration in response to the goal.
Alves and Eric Abidal do need to work on that "Ai Se Eu Te Pego" dance, though.
