Away leg of Copa del Rey semi-final goes to BarçaFebruary 2, 2017
Barcelona went a long way to securing their place in the Copa del Rey finals after beating Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon last night.
Luis Suarez put the Catalans ahead after just seven minutes when he charged in from the halkway line and put the ball home. Messi made it 2-0 soon towards the start of the last quarter hour of first half play when the ball clipped the post and rebounded into the goal.
Griezmann scored one for the home side just before the hour, but Atletico will have to put up a monumental effort to overcome Barça at home next week. It’s not a done deal for FC Barcelona yet, but with focus and a bit of luck their place in the final will be assured.
0-1 Suárez (min 7)
0-2 Messi (min 33)
1-2 Griezmann (min 59)
