The team celebrate their place in the semi-finals | FCB

Rivillos and Joao, the hat-trick heroes | FCB

Last season they failed to make it this far but this year FC Barcelona have restored the natural order of things by reaching the last four of the Copa del Rey. Andreu Plaza's team recorded a comprehensive win over Rivas Futsal in a quarter-final clash played in the Parque Sureste. The 8-1 winning margin was slightly misleading as the blaugranes were made to work hard in the first half by their opponents from the Second Division of the futsal league. 

The games was still up in the air as late as the second half until Rivillos completed his hat-trick, Joao added his and Ferrao and Joselito rounded off the win to secure Barça Lassa a place in the semi-finals of the competition.
