Copa del Rey Barcelona v Villarreal
V is for Vistory! After FC Barcelona’s thrilling 3-2 win over Atheltico Madrid at Vicente Calderón Stadium for the second leg of the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey, they will advance to play Villarreal for the semi-finals today Wednesday February 11th at Camp Nou. This is a very interesting situation for FC Barcelona because last year they managed to make it to the Copa del Rey finals in 2014 but finished with a 2-1 upset against Real Madrid. This year the team is hungry once again to reach that number one spot and would have to finish off Villarreal and then face the winner of the Athletic v. Espanyol semi-final match. Messi and Neymar are on fire at the moment and have created some blistering attacks that have devastated many teams throughout the competition. But, don’t rule Villarreal out just yet! They gave FC Barcelona a run for their money in league play February 1st where FC Barcelona had to fight back hard for a 3-2 win.
