    Also worth remembering that Atletico missed a penalty, through Kevin Gameiro, and had an Antoine Griezmann goal wrongly disallowed.

  2. Post update

    The headlines are...

    • Barcelona reach the Copa del Rey final.
    • They will face either Celta Vigo or Alaves, who play their second leg tomorrow
    • Luis Suarez will not play the final as he is suspended.
    • Neither will right-back Sergi Roberto, who was also sent off

    I'm exhausted just from live texting this game, I don't know how the players on the pitch feel.

  4. FULL-TIME - Barcelona into Copa del Rey final

    Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)


    Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

    Atletico defender Filipe Luis hacks down Lionel Messi. He's booked.

    And Messi is taking an age to 'recover' from the foul. Is time up for Atletico?

    Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

    Koke's corner is headed away by Gerard Pique and keeper Miguel Angel Moya runs back to his goal.

    Then Filipe Luis' shot is blocked by a brilliant Samuel Umtiti block.

    It's attack v defence now. Barcelona are hanging on. Just. Filipe Luis' cross is cleared. And wait, it's a corner. Two minutes left.

    Five minutes added on. Can the 10 men score once against the nine men to take us to extra time?

    Antoine Griezmann can't reacted quickly enough to turn Angel Correa's cross home.

  10. RED CARD - Luis Suarez (Barcelona)

    Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

    Unbelievable. Luis Suarez is the third player to be sent off. And Koke's acting has probably cost him there. Suarez maybe touches the Atletico playmaker in the back of the net and Koke goes down holding his face.

    That means Suarez will miss the final. Barca end the game with NINE men.

    Somebody has to gamble! Koke whips the ball across goal, three yards out, but no Atletico player is there to tap the ball home and force extra time. Diego Simeone can't believe it. Into the final minute.


    Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

    Barca striker Luis Suarez is booked. There are less than three minutes left now. It's getting tense down on the pitch.

    Noel Fitzpatrick: Offside yes, but Walcott/Sterling et al, watch how Luis Suarez finished!!

  14. 'Oh no... he was offsides'

    Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

    Barcelona's response to that Luis Suarez disallowed goal looks like it was written by one of those internet lolcats


    Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

    It's 1-1 on disallowed goals now as Luis Suarez slams the ball into the back of the net. Unlike Atletico's goal that wasn't counted, Suarez was actually offside so it's the right call.

  16. GOAL - Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

    Kevin Gameiro (83 mins)

    Oh, hello. HELLO.

    Atletico Madrid are back in this tie. Antoine Griezmann unselfishly squares the ball to Kevin Gameiro, who makes up for his missed penalty by tapping the ball into the empty net.

    Barca keeper Jasper Cillessen appeals. I have no idea what for.

    One goal for Atletico forces extra time now.

    Dave Wood: Time for an Atleti comeback of Patriots proportions! 


    Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

    Oh no. Kevin Gameiro's penalty is awful and hits the crossbar before going over. 

    Was that Atletico's final chance to get back into the game?

    Kevin Gameiro
