Coruña, who is active in the second division (B), ousted La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid from the second round of the tournament.
But Barcelona spoiled the ambitions of Cornia and knocked him out of the tournament by a precious victory over him in extra time for the match after the end of normal time with a goalless draw to reserve Barcelona his seat in the round of sixteen of the tournament. During the original time of the match, Barcelona was lucky, as its players Miralem Pjanic and Osman Dembli wasted two penalty kicks for the team in the 39th and 80th minutes, to end the normal time with a negative tie and the two teams resorted to playing extra time.
Dembley managed to compensate his team for a missed penalty when he scored the lead in the 92nd minute before Martin Braithwaite gave the team the second goal in the first minute of injury time for the second overtime. Cornia ended the match with 10 men after his player Albert Fernandez was sent off in the 118th minute.
