Ronald Koeman Eliminated in the semi-finals of the Del Rey Cup Against Sevilla just like it did in the league last Sunday and Barcelona noticed that. Azulgrana continued with the same great feelings they left in Pizjuán and They’ve been involved in “process comeback” since very early on. The Blaugrana searched for the target from the starting whistle and didn’t take long to find it.
But a 1-0 pre-requisite, Barcelona knocked several times on the door of Sevilleista, Who were at the mercy of the Catalans for most of the first half. In the first stages, Barcelona reached the opponent’s area with great ease and warned with a good shot on the right that Ousmane Dembele did not finish, and another shot by Frenchman Pedri was very high.
After two people arrive with some danger, Dembele himself made it clear that he was finding himself in his favor with a brilliant goal from the team. The French did not think twice, and after leaving the region, they thought of it in two small steps. He placed it in the near center with his adorable right hand that Vacclik couldn’t do anything towards. It’s a bit cool for the French to give wings to Barcelona, who wanted to be in the Cup Final.
The culés continued to dominate and They clearly came into the area on some occasions, but failed to put 2-0 on the scoreboard. Leo Messi caused Acuña, one of the few Seville players who understood the accident, to make an effort to get the ball out from under the sticks when the goal was almost too close. On the other hand, the Spaniards arrived somewhat, but did not finish fine tuning in the last pass, last control or shot, and Marc-Andre ter Stegen had almost no difficulties in the first half.
Barcelona may have gone to rest with He feels he deserves a prize greater than 1-0. Coman’s men dominated all aspects of the game, had several options for off-target danger and deserved more, but the Andalusians were saved. Therefore, the Catalans had no choice but to turn the page and return to the second half in search of the second and back.
You beat it up and saved it for Barcelona at the last minute
The ball continued to be from Barcelona in the first quarter of an hour of the second half, but the sense of danger was less. Seville knew how to defend himself better and withstand the attacks of the BlaugranaHe never stopped trying, but found himself facing a better defended team. However, despite the Lopetegui improvement, the locals were much better and more dominant and this roughly translates into a scoreboard.
Jordi Alba sent the ball to the crossbar in the 67th minute after a superb cross from Dembele Which side almost puts in the box. Unfortunately, Hospitalt’s hit fell into the woods, leaving honey on the lips of all Barcelona fans. But misfortune could be much greater if Lucas Ocampos managed to take the penalty kick that he himself had just five minutes away from Alba’s chance.
The Argentine clashed with Mengoiza inside the area in a somewhat suspicious game, but the referee was clear about that and announced the maximum penalty. Luckily, Ter Stegen showed once again that he was a master at the art and guessed the Argentine’s shot To block and prevent Sevilla from leaving the tie that was almost seen as a goal penalty would have forced Barcelona to score three more goals, so the pause left the Catalans alive and condemned Sevilla.
Barcelona was largely alive, but the Andalusians held out well in defense and covered nearly all loopholes before the Catalans’ attacks. The match was nearing completion and Lopetegui’s men had already reached the Grand Final. But at the last minute, shortly after Seville fans stayed with ten after Fernando’s second yellow, Gerard Pique shot an epic shot and sent the duel into extra time with a good header after an impressive cross from Antoine Griezmann..
Braithwaite put Barcelona in the final in overtime
Barcelona made the miracle at the last minute by more than it was due and faced the extension with enthusiasm and the feeling that he was the favorite. With ten, Sevilla had to hold out until the penalty shootout 2-0 and try to “catch” some. However, Hispanics barely managed to hold the score for a few minutes Martin Braithwaite started the equalizer for the Catalans in the 95th minute With a good header, it passed under the legs of Vaccic.
With 3-0 and a half feet in the final, Barcelona tried to get it, but he never stopped looking for the opponent’s goal to extend his lead. Meanwhile, Seville took a step forward that did not want to find eleven and gave more of a panic. In fact, Clement Lenglet touched the ball with his hand inside the area and the penalty kick was played, though Interpreted the video assistant referee and the theatrical referee as involuntaryBecause the ball was previously bluffing him into his chest.
In the final minutes, tired Barcelona tried to take advantage of the spaces left by the Andalusians, but they failed to rule in the semi-final with the fourth goal. The Lopetegui players didn’t give up and looked for the goal that would have given them the pass, but Ter Stegen was so confident he wouldn’t let anything. in the end, Barcelona confirmed their epic comeback and entered the Cup final king.
