Barcelona demolish Sevilla with spectacular 6-1 Copa del Rey comeback

Messi and La Liga president Javier Tebas

After a 2-0 defeat in Seville last week in which they rested key players, the Catalans broke the deadlock in the 13th minute when Coutinho slotted home from the penalty spot following Quincy Promes's foul on Lionel Messi.

Ernesto Valverde's men overturned a 2-0 deficit in the first leg to thrash Sevilla 6-1 and progress to the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey. A two goal lead which would soon vanish.

A beleaguered Sevilla, who were 5-1 down at the time, were forced to watch as Barca tore them in stoppage time. Sevilla then spurned the opportunity to score from the spot themselves as Ever Banega saw his penalty saved by Jasper Cillessen.

Every Barca match wouldn't be complete without Messi having a say, as the skipper finished off a stunning move with a plunging finish past Soriano to complete the come back.

"I'm more than happy here and my intention is to be here even longer". He scored the final goal in what turned out to be a rout as Barca cruised to a 6-1 win on the night, as the fans inside the Nou Camp were treated to a vintage Barca performance.

"Thanks to Leo, for letting me kick the penalty, that's good for the confidence of the group".

Guillerme Arana then scored a powerful shot for Sevilla to leave the visitors a goal away from qualification, as Barca appealed in vain for a penalty for handball in the other area. "He's great and gestures show how big he is".

Leo Baptistao put Espanyol ahead in the first half and it was not until 14 minutes from time than Giovani Lo Celso leveled the tie.
