Barcelona made it to their eighth Copa Del Rey final in nine seasons on Wednesday night with a resounding win over Real Madrid in the first of two back-to-back El Clasico fixtures.
With the first leg finishing one apiece at the Camp Nou, Barca made light work of finishing off their rivals on their own soil with three second-half goals.
Luis Suarez opened things up on 50 minutes before a Raphael Varane own-goal in the 69th cemented the Catalan side’s position (nice).
After being felled by Casimero in the box, Suarez added a third from the spot in the 73rd minute and did so in brassy Panenka-esque fashion in front of a stand full of baying Real fans…
The goal settled a fairly comprehensive 4-1 aggregate win for Barca, who will now face either Valencia or Real Betis in the final.
As for the Clasico twosome, they are now set to go at it once again at the Bernabeu on Sunday, this time in La Liga, with Los Blancos desperately trying to make a dint in the nine-point deficit that currently stands between themselves and their eternal foes in the rankings.
