FC Barcelona came back from a 2-0 first leg deficit to advance to the Copa del Rey final, 3-2 on aggregate, after a dramatic 3-0 extra-time victory over Sevilla in the second leg of their semifinal on Wednesday.
Barcelona stated their intent after just 12 minutes through a spectacular Dembele strike from outside the box. The Frenchman took advantage of Sevilla defenders standing off him and curled and unstoppable strike high and inside the near post.
The result means Barcelona will play the winner between Athletic Bilbao and Levante in the competition's final on April 17. The two challengers will kick off the second leg of their semi at Levante's Ciutat de Valencia on Thursday.
