Copa del Rey: Barça corrects Sevilla FC and reaches the last square!

A week after losing 2-0 in the first leg, FC Barcelona found Sevilla FC on Wednesday night at Camp Nou for their quarter-final return of Copa del Rey. Winner of this second game on the score of 6-1, the defending champion remains in contention and will be present in the semifinals.

90 minutes to go up two goals. Last Wednesday, FC Barcelona fell on the turf of Seville FC in the quarter-final first leg of Copa del Rey (2-0). A week later, the Catalan club, defending champion, received the Andalusian training at Camp Nou for revenge and thus this return match. The Blaugranas therefore had no choice and had to score to at least snatch an extension in order not to lose his title. Opposite, the Sevillians had to hold to eliminate Barca and join the last square. For this match, Ernesto Valverde was a 4-3-3 with the Messi-Suarez-Coutinho trio ahead. For his part, Pablo Machin opted for a 3-5-2 and André Silva was associated with Pablo Sarabia in attack.

On their lawn, the Blaugranas settled in the Andalusian camp little by little and Messi got a penalty for a foul from Promes. The Barcelona captain left him to Coutinho who was transforming (13th, 1-0). After this opening score, the locals were trying to break. The Brazilian winger was trying his luck just like Messi but no Sevillian defense dismissed the danger (18th). The visitors, after a difficult start to the match, finally approached the Catalan surface. Fault on the penalty, Promes overflowed right side before returning to the axis to serve André Silva. The Portuguese international tried a "Madjer" and Cillessen came off an incredible stop on the ground to send the ball on the post (24th). But after the action, Roque Mesa was stepped on by Pique, offering a penalty Sevile FC. Banega started but Cillessen won his duel (27th)!

Cillessen decisive
The Dutch goalkeeper saved his team, as a goal outside the Andalusian club would have forced Barca to score four times. Ernesto Valverde's team doubled the bet next. On a beautiful ball Arthur, Rakitic deviated the trajectory and surprised Soriano (31st, 2-0). And just before the break, Piqué grazed the third goal of the head (45th). And in the second period, the locals seemed to have the same intentions. After a good work Suarez crossed to Coutinho who scored a double of the head (53rd, 3-0). Barça was in a strong moment and Sergi Roberto broke the nail a few seconds later. The Spanish side launched Messi right side which found him in withdrawal. The 26-year-old's shot hit the net with a cross shot (54th, 4-0). Coutinho then thought he would see triple by scoring again but a goal was refused for an offside (58th). Back to the wall, the Sevillians had to score at all costs to restart the next game. And after the hour of play, the visitors found the path of the nets.

Promes transmitted to Banega who shifted Arana, whose shot ended in the skylight of Cillessen (68th, 4-1). With this Sevillian goal, Barça were still qualified for the semi-finals but another opposing achievement condemned the Catalan club. Ball down, the men of Pablo Machin then wanted to score this second goal so precious but the Blaugranas remained dangerous, like Messi who stumbled on Soriano while the goal was open (74th). The Argentine international returned to the charge but still did not mark (80th). Sergi Roberto missed him the double (82), but Suarez himself loaded the fifth goal (89th). Finally, the score worsened in the additional time. After a sublime collective action, Messi went there from his goal (90 + 3, 6-1). Barça won 6-1 in the return leg and got his ticket for the last four
