Philippe Coutinho broke his seal for Barcelona on Thursday night, scoring the Catalans’ second goal in their 2-0 win over Valencia in the semi-finals of the Copa Del Rey.

The ex-Liverpool forward entered the arena as a half-time substitute and promptly took just three minutes to double Barca’s lead after latching onto a cross from his old mucker Luis Suarez…

In a semi-interesting coincidental quirk, it was also Suarez who provided the assist for Coutinho’s first ever Liverpool goal too, against Swansea back in February of 2013.

Any road up, Barca went on to register a 3-0 aggregate victory over Valencia to go waltzing into their fifth straight Copa Del Rey final.
