Indeed they did. I believe that was three weeks ago and that goal came in stoppage time. This was a match where Rafa under estimated the opponent and but a 1/2 ass squad out there to compete. The keeper should have stopped that shot but that's what you get when you don't play Pepe Reina! I doubt Rafa will make that mistake again.
As a side note, I do believe this was the Saturday before the 1st Leg tie with Inter. So Gerrard, Torres, and Reina sat out the match and Benitez paid dearly for that. As much as an FA Cup would have been to make up for the poor record in the Premiership everyone knows Champions League is the cream of the crop when it comes to trophies. So by playing those guys against Barnsley would have meant they wouldn't be available or wouldn't be in top condition for the 1st Leg with Inter.
