11:47 am on 29 November 2012

David Villa took his career goal tally to 301 when he netted twice as holders Barcelona eliminated third-tier Alaves 6-1 on aggregate to qualify for the last 16 of the King's Cup.

The Spain striker clipped a sumptuous free kick into the top corner in the 56th minute at the Nou Camp and smashed home Cristian Tello's unselfish layoff three minutes later as Barca came from behind to win the second leg clash 3-1 to set up a meeting with second-division Cordoba.
