Barcelona Stroll Into Copa Del Rey Final

Copa Del Rey

Result: Villarreal 1-3 (2-6) Barcelona

Date: 4 March 2015

Venue: Camp El Madrigal

Barcelona booked their place in the Copa del Rey final with a 6-2 aggregate victory over Villarreal on Wednesday.

Barca took a 3-1 scoreline into the second leg and won 3-1 away from home to secure their place in the final.
 
The Catalans wasted little time in taking the lead as they opened the scoring in the third minute. Javier Mascherano found Luis Suarez with a great pass over the top and the Uruguayan played it on for Lionel Messi who crossed for Neymar to finish first time.
 
Villarreal responded six minutes before the break as they equalised. Jaume Costa got the ball on the left flank and squared it for Jonathan Dos Santos at the far post where he converted the chance.
 
With the aggregate score 4-2 in Barca's favour, Messi came close to killing off the game in the 55th minute as he dribbled inside from the right before curling a shot at the far corner of the goal, but it was well saved by Asenjo.
 
The Yellow Submarine's task of coming back became even more unlikely just past the hour mark as they were reduced to 10 men. Pina launched into Neymar's legs with two feet and was shown a straight red card for his troubles.
 
Barca secured their place in the final with a second goal in the 73rd minute. Mascherano provided another incisive pass for Suarez who beat Victor Ruiz before placing his shot into the back of the net.
 
The visitors added a third in the 88th minute when Xavi sent a superb cross towards Neymar who beat two defenders to the ball and headed home.
