MESSI Sends Barcelona Through Copa Del Rey Final

Barcelona will play in the Copa Del Rey final after drawing with Real Mallorca 1-1 and winning 3-1 on aggregate. They did not look too good without Lionel MESSI who started the match from the bench.

The islander side took the lead just before half time courtesy of a powerful left footed strike from Chori CASTRO. They could have doubled the lead when Josep Lluis MARTI missed his penalty in the 51st minute.

Lionel was brought in place of Bojan KRKIC in the 59th minute and certainly had lifted Barca’s game. The equalizer finally came in the 81st minute MESSI latched on to the ball after some woeful defending left him one on one with the keeper and he clipped the ball over fellow Albiceleste German LUX.

Barcelona will play Athletic Bilbao in the final and are on course for remarkable treble in both La Liga and the Champions League
