Goodbye

Barcelona 7-0 Valencia

So, a humiliating night for Gary Neville. The bad news is his side have to face Barcelona again in the return leg next Wednesday. Hopefully they will give the European champions a better game. Thanks for your company. Until next time...

Droll tweet of night award...

I'm surprised at the lack of faith in G Nev, surely Valencia can beat barca 8-0 at home?? #bbceurofooty #BarcaValencia #barcelonaVCF

Oops..

Barcelona 7-0 Valencia

Before tonight Valencia were unbeaten in five matches in the Copa del Rey under Gary Neville, scoring 11 goals and conceding just once. 

You can rip that one up.

Humiliation? Perhaps overused, but maybe not tonight?

Neville has to go. Winless in La Liga and humiliated tonight by Barca. Things seem to have got worse since his appointment #bbceurofooty

FULL-TIME

Barcelona 7-0 Valencia

Barcelona 7-0 Valencia

Into the closing moments. Valencia need putting out of their misery.

Four goals for Suarez

Barcelona 7-0 Valencia

This is a slaughter. Barca make it seven - and Luis Suarez gets his fourth - after Arda feeds the Uruguay forward, who first-time on the turn in off the near post.

Luis Suarez (87 mins)

This has been utterly horrible for Valencia. Never mind their fans' 'volatile' reputation: any fans of any club would be furious with this.

Suarez hat-trick

Barcelona 6-0 Valencia

A header from Luis Suarez at the back post...and it's a hat-trick for Luis Suarez. That's 34 goals in 33 games for Suarez this season.

Luis Suarez hat-trick

Barcelona 5-0 Valencia

They're chanting Luis Enrique's name around the Nou Camp. Barca have been a joy to watch even though they have been playing against 10 men for half the tie. 

Barcelona 5-0 Valencia

Exhibition stuff from Barca. We're into the last 10 minutes. Time for another goal or two from the hosts?

Barcelona 5-0 Valencia

There's a second leg to come at the Mestalla next week. What's the point? Barca are surely through to their sixth final in eight attempts.

Messi hat-trick

Barcelona 5-0 Valencia

Terrible defending by Valencia as they fail to clear the ball inside their own area, Messi wins it back and fires past the keeper who should have saved. It's another hat-trick for Lionel Messi. He could end this match with four or five goals at this rate.

GOAL - Barcelona 5-0 Valencia

Lionel Messi (hat-trick)

Barcelona 4-0 Valencia

Cheryshev has the ball in the back of the Barca net...but it's disallowed for offside. Valencia's night cannot get any worse.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 4-0 Valencia

Moments before Messi's second goal, Valencia sent on new loan signing Denis Cheryshev from Real Madrid. You can guess the 'welcome' the Russian winger received from the home fans after his inclusion led to Real being eliminated from the competition in December. 

Barcelona 4-0 Valencia

So, who will be first to get their hat-trick? Messi or Suarez?
