Oriol Busquets says Barcelona debut was 'a dream come true' after academy product starred in 5-0 Copa del Rey victory over Real Murcia
Oriol Busquets made a 'dream' debut when helping a much-changed Barcelona side coast into the last 16 of the Copa del Rey with a 5-0 win over Real Murcia at the Nou Camp.
Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde made the expected selection rotation, which included giving 18-year-old midfielder Busquets his first start on what was the occasion of the club's 118th anniversary.
The league leaders were already 3-0 up from the first leg, and despite the predicted sweeping changes, Valverde's men never looked in any danger of failing to finish the job.
