Barça 7-2 Jaén: Into the Copa del Rey Final Four!

Barça win at the Palau Blaugrana to book their place in the final phase of the Copa del Rey in Antequera over the weekend of 1 and 2 April

And there it is...the Barça futsal team are through to the Final Four of the Copa del Rey! Jesús Velasco's side won 7-2 against Jaén in the quarterfinal, and can now get ready to travel to Antequera for the final phase on 1 and 2 April. Matheus, Antonio (x2), Sergio Lozano, Sergio González (x2) and Pito scored the goals on a magical night at the Palau Blaugrana.


Control from the off

Barça came out with a purpose and soon took the lead, Matheus surprising the keeper with shot that went through a whole host of players, before Antonio scored a great goal from outside the area (2-0, min 6). They weren't finished, however, Lozano scoring a cross-shot to extend the lead (3-0, min 10).

The goals continued after halftime, partly because Jaén used a fly keeper, César getting one back (3-1, min 24). Barça redressed the balance quickly, however, first through Sergio González (4-1, min 30), and then Antonio scored into an open net from his own half for his second of the game (5-1, min 31).

There was still time for more, Chino made it 5-2 with a great shot to apply a bit of pressure, but time was running out and with five fouls on the board, their options were limited. Pito (6-2, min 39) and Sergio González (7-2, min 40) scored to round off the 7-2 win. All set for Antequera!
