Barça have powered their way into the Copa del Rey final with a 6-3 win against Betis. Leading 4-0, it looked the job was more than done, but then the Andalusians mounted an amazing reaction, pulling back to 4-3 with just six minutes to go. But Barça were in no mood for surprises and eventually sealed it with two late goals. Today’s goalscorers were Ximbinha, Aicardo Lozano (2), Marcenio and Adolfo.
So, that’s Barça through to the final for the third year in a row, somewhat belatedly in this case due to the 2019/20 edition suffering suspension as a result of Covid-19, but the title will finally be decided on Sunday at 8.30pm CET.
