Copa Del Rey: Barcelona reach final after 3-0 second leg win over Real Madrid

Barcelona beat Real Madrid 3-0 on Wednesday evening to progress to the Copa del Rey final.

The first leg of this tie saw goals from Lucas Vazquez and Malcom have the score tied at 1-1 but with Los Blancos leading on the away goal rule.

Santiago Solari’s side dominated the first half of the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu, keeping Barca at bay and the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez quiet for the large part.

Vinicius Jr was in excellent form and proving a tricky customer for Nelson Semedo, who had Sergi Roberto to thank on a number of occasions as the Brazilian continued to create for Madrid.

Karim Benzema was also proving a handful but in truth the only clear cut chance of the first 45 minutes came to Vinicius, who found space in the six yard box, turned, and then fired a powerful effort at Marc Andre ter-Stegen’s goal – but his effort went just over the crossbar.

The second half began with Madrid looking to continue their control of the game, but Luis Suarez had other ideas as he got Barca’s all important away goal and put them in front on aggregate.

The Uruguayan striker finished off a superb move which involved Jordi Alba to silence the Bernabeu crowd.

The second goal of the game would follow 15 minutes later when Suarez was involved once more, causing a problem in the box from Ousmane Dembele’s cross, which was finally put in by Raphael Varane.

Finally, the contest was finished off by Ernesto Valverde’s side when Suarez was fouled in the area by Casemiro and he stepped up to score a sensational panenka to seal the win and the Catalan club’s passage to the Copa final, where they will now face either Real Betis or Valencia.
