PV Sports Desk : Barcelona survived a Copa del Rey scare against third-tier Linares as Dani Alves marked his first Barca appearance in more than five years with a victory.

Alves, 38, made his long-awaited second debut, having had to wait for the January registration window to open following his signing in November.

But the Spanish minnows took a shock half-time lead through Hugo Diaz.

Goals from Ousmane Dembele and Ferran Jutgla spared Barca the embarrassment of a third-round exit.
