Barcelona's Pique: Six straight Copa del Rey finals hard to do again

Courtois PS

Los Blancos went into the game with a slight advantage, having scored an away goal in the first leg, a 1-1 stalemate at the Camp Nou at the beginning of February. "It isn't a failure because it was a semi-final and we won't be able to play in the final, so we will have to try again".

"It's been one of the games at the Bernabeu in which we have suffered the most and had least possession of the ball", said Busquets after the match, which had been a freaky affair. We have been beaten with honour, but we're sad because this is a tough blow for us to take. The idea of fair, or unfair, does not really exist in football.

The match kicks off at 7.45pm UK time, so just after the conclusion of West Ham United vs Newcastle United in the Premier League. "You must take your chances". It is hard to pick out one memorable moment, but the most resonant image is that of the player holding his jersey aloft after scoring twice in the 2016/17 Clasico, including a last-minute victor which appeared to have propelled his side back into the title race, although they ultimately fell short.

After conceding at home, Barcelona needed to score at the Bernabeu to have any chance of advancing, and it didn't look good for the Catalan club as it was outplayed by Madrid throughout the first half. But they took the ones they had.

"We will try and win this one".

Some of the flights en route to Jammu, Leh and Srinagar airports have been diverted to their origin stations, officials added. A civilian Kifayat Ahmad Ganaie (30) son of Mohammad Ramzan Ganie and two IAF pilots were earlier killed due to the crash.

Barca have now scored at least three times in victories on four of their last five visits to the Bernabeu across the Copa and La Liga, but Solari denied that this result would have a big impact on his team's future games, starting with Saturday's Liga Clasico back at the Bernabeu. They robbed the ball back quickly and we didn't get into our rhythm.

"We fell with honour, we could do no more". But. goals? Vinicius tried again and again but his shooting was way off when he had the chance to score.

The former Madrid manager also had a few words to say about Brazilian starlet Vinicius, stating: "age is neither a merit nor a disadvantage; he, like many others, is young and has the ability to be an important player".

"To play here is the ultimate challenge, but the performance of the team has been incredible - we can't have asked for more from ourselves in terms of the cup recently".
