Yerry Mina makes his Barcelona debut

It was a memorable Thursday night for Yerry Mina as he made his debut in a Barcelona shirt, replacing Gerard Pique in the 83rd minute at the Estadio Mestalla in a Copa del Rey victory over Valencia.

Pique was suffering with a knee problem picked up in the Catalan derby and his withdrawal gave Mina a long awaited debut after three weeks watching from the sidelines.

One of two January signings, Philippe Coutinho scored his first goal for the club on the same evening.

Mina has come in to reinforce the backline at Barcelona after Javier Mascherano left for China.

He cost the club 11.8 million euros as he moved from Palmeiras, signing a contract until 2023 with a release clause of 100 million euros.
