Barcelona have advanced to the quarter-finals of the Europa League following a 2-1 win over Galatasaray on Thursday evening. 

Galatasaray opened the scoring in the 28th minute through Marcao who headed the ball past Barcelona keeper, a bullet that saw the stadium erupt.

Pedri levelled the scores in the 36th minute and it was one stunning strike. The midfielder found himself free in the box after a flowing team move, sitting two defenders down with a couple of feints before rolling past the keeper.

In the final seconds of the first half, Barca went close to taking the lead as Aubameyang looped header from a Traore cross went over the crossbar.

The Catalans took the lead minutes after the start of the second half. Torres’s shot was saved from close range, found its way to De Jong, who headed towards Aubameyang for a tap in.
