Holders Barcelona fell to a shock 2-1 defeat by Levante in the first leg of their Copa Del Rey last-16 tie.
Erick Cabaco and Borja Mayoral scored in the opening 20 minutes to give the hosts a comfortable lead at half-time.
Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho pulled a goal back for Barcelona with a late penalty.
