    AET: Barcelona 3-0 (10) Sevilla!!! (agg 3-2)!! Barca go through in dramatic fashion thanks to goals from Dembele, Pique and then Braithwaite in ET!!! Barca were the better team overall and deserved it, but Ocampos saw a pen saved at 1-0 and then D Carlos stupidly didn't let the ball go out for another corner. That cost Sevilla, who were then playing with 10 as Fernando was sent off. Barca were comfortable in ET bar the penalty shout.

  • 106'
    Second period of extra-time is underway!
  • 105'
    Sevilla aren't happy, but the fact Lenglet deliberately played the ball with his chest meant it's not a penalty even though it hits his arm afterwards. The officials have made the right decision.
  • 105'
    HT in ET: Barca 3-0 Sevilla (agg 3-2). 15 minutes left and Sevilla aren't happy with the ref.

    Huge penalty shout by Sevilla and the ball touches Lenglet's arm. His arm is out and this couild be given.
  • 99'
    Messi hits one now and it's saved by Ter Stegen.
  • 98'
    Another Barca shot is blocked and it's very open now as Sevilla are throwing men forward.
  • 97'
    Sevilla go forward, but it comes to nothing.
  • 96'
    Now we can't have penalties. Barca are going through as it stands, but 10 man Sevilla go through if they score. I've always found it unfair that away goals count after ET, but there we are.
Goal
Goaaaaaal!
de Barcelona en el 95'
  • 95'
    Braithwaite makes it 3-0!!!! A ball into the box by Alba is headed by Braithwaite from six yard and even though Vaclik gets his body to it, he can't keep it out.
  • 94'
    Sevilla's best chance now is penalties.
  • 94'
    Junior hits one now and it's saved by Vaclik.

    Barca deserved the goal but Sevilla only had themselves to blame. The Ocampos penalty miss, Fernando's red and D Carlos not letting the ball go out.

    Messi send a ball into the box and it's knocked behind for a corner.
  • 91'
    Extra-time in play!

  • 90'
    90+3: Messi's free-kick hits the wall and it's a corner.
  • 90'
    90+2: That was a stupid thing to do. He will regret that if Barca score.
Card

Second yellow card

a Sevilla
  • 90'
    90+2: Sevilla counter, but the move breaks down and then Trincao is pulled back just outside the box and Fernando sees yellow! That's his second and he's off. Clear.
  • 90'
    90+1: Four added minutes. There's no way Barca deserve to be losing this tie. Sevilla have just taken their chances (apart from the pen).
  • 90'
    Free-kick to Sevilla after Vaclik is blocked off by Barca men. Sevilla wanted the advantage playing.
  • 90'
    Trincao's ball in goes for a corner.
  • 89'
    Barca double sub: Trincao and Braithewaite on for Pedri and Dembele.
  • 89'
    The ball struck Ocampos on the arm, but he was sliding and it wasn't a pen.
  • 88'
    Another ball in, Pedri sends a looping header into Vaclik's hands.
  • 86'
    Huge penalty shout for handball by Barca!!! But it's not given!! Ocampos has a shot blocked and then at the other end, Messis powerful effort is blocked by a sliding Sevilla man! It's a Barca siege!!
  • 84'
    Dembele hits one and it flies over. He seems to have pulled a muscle. Not good.
  • 82'
    This is a huge 10 minutes in Barca's season. Is the pen save a sign of things to come?
  • 82'
    One of Lopetegui's assistants has picked up a yellow for getting a bit too vocal on the touchline.
  • 79'
    Sevilla sub: Gomez on for Suso.
  • 78'
    Barca double sub: Ilaix on for Busquets. Junior on for Mingueza as well.
  • 78'
    It's taken short to Pedri, play continues and then Messi can't direct the shot towards goal.
  • 77'
    Dembele is brought down just outside the box.
  • 74'
    It's possibly the worst penalty Ocampos has ever taken. He's normally as safe as houses! Barca would have needed 3 to win, now just 1 for ET.
  • 73'
    Ocampos takes and it's saved by Ter Stegen!!! Can you believe it!!! I have to say it's an awful penalty. It's in the middle, very low and Ter Stegen only has to move slightly to his right.
  • 71'
    Penalty to Sevilla after Mingueza brings down Ocampos! En-Nesyri counters for Sevilla and it's a clear pen. Barca will need 3 more if it's scored and this is a huge moment.
  • 70'
    Just 20 minutes left and some Barca frustration is starting to show.
  • 69'
    Alba is penalised for handball. It's accidental after the ball hit Navas' foot, but it's handball.
  • 68'
    Barca have been the much better side over the two games, but they are still losing.

  • 67'
    Mingueza sees yellow for a very cynical foul.
  • 67'
    Off the bar by Alba!!! Barca go forward and Alba volleys Dembele's pass against the bar!
  • 66'
    Dembele's cross in is only half cleared and Sevilla finally scramble it away.
  • 65'
    Sevilla have conceded just one goal in the Copa del Rey this season and that was the goal Dembele scored in the first half.
  • 64'
    Free-kick to Barca after Messi is fouled.
  • 63'
    Barca sub: Griezmann on for Dest. Koeman putting another striker on as they need a goal. No surprises there.
  • 62'
    Sevilla sub: Torres is replaced by Ocampos and it's great to see him back after that shocking challenge by Djene.
  • 59'
    Barca are attacking, but not looking as dangerous. The next goal is huge.
  • 56'
    A reminder that the final is in Sevilla, but not at their ground.
  • 54'
    Sevilla triple sub: Rakitic, Navas and Rekik on for Vidal, Acuna and L de Jong off.

  • 46'
    Back underway here!
  • 45'
    HT: Barca 1-0 Sevilla (agg 1-2)!! Half-time at the Camp Nou and Barca deservedly lead thanks to a Dembele stunner after 12 minutes. The hosts could have scored three or four times before that and Sevilla have done little before that. Acuna had to clear off the line in the 33rd minute to prevent it being 2-0, but the last 10 minutes were quieter. Barca need 1 for ET. Back shortly!
  • 44'
    Messi has the ball and runs towards the box, but then goes sideways and that gives time for Sevilla to get set and stop him.
  • 42'
    Free-kick to Sevilla after a late challenge by Dest and the American could've easily seen yellow.
  • 41'
    Alba gets a corner for the home side now.
  • 39'

    Jorda pulls back Messi 30 yards from goal and it's a free-kick.

    Off the line by Acuna!! It's a matter of time before it's 2-0!!! Messi cuts inside in the area, his pass is deflected towards goal by Fernando and Acuna boots it away.
  • 32'
    Pedri!!! Barca are pressing and pressing, a run by Messi, Busquets lays the ball off to Pedri and he fires wide.
  • 31'
    Acuna!!! Messi and Alba play a lovely one-two, Alba looks for F de Jong in the middle and Acuna clears for a corner.

    A Sevilla pass is close to finding L de Jong, but he can't quite reach it.

    The visitors are slowing the game down now as a quiet game suits them.
  • 21'
    Sevilla having a bit of possession now in Barca's half.
  • 19'
    F de Jong goes down in the box, but nothing is given, Sevilla counter through L De Jong and Suso and Jordan's shot is deflected off Alba for a corner.
  • 18'
    Acuna is brought down by Messi and Sevilla get a relieving free-kick.
  • 17'
    Oliver Torres' cross is batted away and then Vidal's strike is deflected into Ter Stegen's hands.
  • 16'
    Barca threaten down Sevilla's left now and Alba's pass is cut out.
  • 15'
    Free-kick to Sevilla after a foul by Busquets.
  • 14'
    That's one for Barca. They need one more for ET. I feel Barca will get at least one more so Sevilla really need a goal. If Lopetegui's men get one, we won't have ET and the hosts would require three more.
Goal
Goaaaaaal!
de Barcelona en el 12'
  • 12'
    Dembele!!!! What a goal!! Messi and Dembele combine, Kounde stops the move initially, but the ball breaks to Dembele again, he dribbles away from goal and then hit a stunner from just outside the area into Vaclik's top right hand corner!
  • 11'
    Barca take it short, Messi ball in goes along the ground, Lenglet flicks it on with his heel and Lenglet makes a fine stop low!
  • 11'
    Dembele!! He has another go and it's deflected behind for a corner.
  • 10'
    Busquets!!! Good team play from the hosts ends with Busquets' effort from outside the box straight at Vaclik.
  • 9'
    Still 0.0 here and little has happened in the last few minutes. It has calmed down.
  • 6'
    Dembele!!! The ball is passed to Dembele and he hits over the goal! Should've hit the target.
  • 5'
    Good move by Messi, he puts a ball in, F de Jong lets it run through to Dembele, but he isn't expecting it.

  • 3'
    Jordan picks out Torres on this near side, play continues and Acuna's centre is simple for the goalie.
  • 2'
    F de Jong brings down Acuna and Sevilla have a free-kick. Lopetegui's side are looking for that goal which would mean Barca would need 4.
