FC Barcelona 1-0 Reus: Suspense until the end

Barça have overcome Reus to earn a place in the final of the cup, which is being played in Calafell this week. An moment of class in the opening minutes proved to be enough to do it in a game that saw plenty of action between then and the end, but no further goals, with Reus' keeper Càndid Ballart producing an amazing display, but his forwards unable to break the blaugrana defence.
The second half was extraordinarily tight and tense and Barça were let off the hook as the opposition wasted a number of chances to equalise, including two balls onto the crossbar. Many were the moments when Barça feared this game might head into overtime, but it never happened, and instead they can now look forward to an enticing match-up with Liceu for the trophy on Sunday at 12.30pm CET.
Barça: Sergi Fernández, Ignacio Alabart, Pau Bargalló, Helder Nunes, Joao Rodrigues, Sergi Panadero, Marc Grau, Sergi Llorca.
Reus Deportiu: Càndid Ballart, Marc Julià, Checco Compagno, Diego Rojas, Sergi Aragonès, David Gelmà, Ferran Gimenez, Joan Salvat.
Goal: 1-0, Pau Bargalló (min. 2).
