Barca Sets Up Copa 'Clasico' Showdown

MOST COMMENTED

Barcelona won 4-2 in the second leg of its quarterfinal tie with Malaga on Thursday to set up a Copa del Rey semifinal clash with Real Madrid. The Catalan giant, which had tied the first-leg 2-2 at the Camp Nou, advanced to the last four with a 6-4 aggregate victory.

Barca had gained an eighth minute advantage at La Rosaleda through Pedro, only for Malaga's Joaquin to equalize four minutes later. Gerard Pique scored shortly after the break to restore Barca’s lead, but Malaga was again able to level the score through Roque Santa Cruz. With 15 minutes to go, Andres Iniesta put the visitor in the lead again after a fine move with Cesc Fabregas, and Lionel Messi made sure four minutes later with a header—his 40th goal of the season—to seal the win.

The La Liga leader will now face third-place Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey semifinal. The other semifinal will see second-place Atletico Madrid face 12th place Sevilla.
