FC Barcelona Lassa progressed to the final of the Copa del Rey with an epic semifinal second leg performance against Movistar Inter, coming back from 0-2 down to draw 3-3 on the night. The result takes Andreu Plaza's side to their first final in three years.

A fightback was required at the Palau Blaugrana, as Movistar Inter took the lead with goals from Solano (0-1, min 15) and Daniel (0-2, min 20). After the halftime break Barça went all-out in search of goals, and Leo Santana pulled one back on 23 minutes after a series of blocks by the opposition goalkeeper and defenders.

From there, Barça dominated and played a pressing game. Despite suffering from a dislocated shoulder, Ferrao continued playing and enjoyed a pair of chances, before grabbing an equaliser in the 36th minute to make it 2-2.

Joao took advantage of the opposition playing with their goalkeeper outfield to score from his own half, 39 minutes in, and even though Daniel brought the visitors back on terms with 12 seconds remaining, Barça went through to the final on away goals.
