Barca avoids scare over ineligible player, stays in Copa

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Barcelona will not be penalized for allegedly using an illegible player in a Copa del Rey match.

Levante's complaint arrived after the 48-hour deadline, the Spanish football federation said on Friday.

The judge overseeing competition disputes ruled to "maintain the result of the tie and keep FC Barcelona in the draw for the quarterfinals" because Levante's complaint was filed almost a week too late.
