Published

Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, was not on the score sheet as the La Liga giants thrashed Sevilla 3-0 in the Copa del Rey semi-final second-leg on Wednesday night to qualify for the final.

Ousmane Dembele opened the scoring for Barcelona in the first half before Gerard Pique scored a late goal to force the game into extra time.

Martin Braithwaite then scored in the first half of extra time to ensure Ronald Koeman’s side qualified for the final ahead of Sevilla on 3-2 aggregate.

Recall that Barcelona had lost 2-0 against Sevilla in the first leg last month.

Barcelona will now face the winner between Levente and Athletic Club in the final on April 4.

Barcelona’s next fixture is against Osasuna in the La Liga on Saturday.

The Blaugrana are currently in the second position on the La Liga table with 53 points from 25 games.
