5-star Barcelona book Copa Del Rey semi-final spot(with video)

Posted on January 30, 2014 by admin

The result of this two legged tie was almost settled in the favour of Barcelona in the first leg at Levante, but the Spanish champions made absolutely sure with a professional and ruthless performance at the Nou Camp last night. The weather was awful, but the team warmed the home fans up with five goals and a place in the Copa Del Rey semi-finals.

The opponents in that semi will probably be Real Sociedad and they must be wondering if they have any chance at all after Barcelona won 5-1 without Messi and made the aggregate score 9-2 against decent La Liga opponents. Messi was rested and Alexis Sanchez was given a chance to shine in the middle. He grabbed it with both hands and scored a nice brace.

Andres Iniesta put on a fantastic show and looks like he is getting back to his best form, which is great news for Barca with a tough Champions League tie coming up against Manchester City as well as a very tight race unfolding in La Liga.

Barcelona did have to come from behind when Levante got very lucky with a huge deflection, but it did not last long. Adriano smashed a trademark equaliser from long distance, Puyol continued his comeback with a header to take the lead and, after Alexis’ two, Fabregas put a nice gloss on the game with an arrowed finish to make it five.
