Valencia stun Barça in Copa

Valencia stunned Barcelona 3-2 at the Mestalla to reach the Copa del Rey final 4-3 on aggregate.

Barca, who had scrambled an injury-time equaliser to draw 1-1 in the first leg, were hit by a Ruben Baraja piledriver and a breakaway goal from Juan Mata before halftime in an intense encounter they dominated throughout.

Substitute Thierry Henry pulled one back for Barca in the second half only for Mata to bag his second almost immediately and, although a late Samuel Eto'o goal set up a grandstand finish, it was to no avail.

The victory relieves some of the pressure on coach Ronald Koeman who has seen Valencia drop out of Europe and the league title race since he replaced Quique Sanchez Flores in November.

"It's ridiculous to say your fortunes change because of one game, but all teams need a little breathing space and hopefully this victory give us that," said Koeman.

"It's a great night for Valencia who have suffered a lot recently."

Valencia will meet Getafe on April 16, with a place in next season's UEFA Cup up for grabs, after Michael Laudrup's side booked a second consecutive appearance in the final with a 4-2 aggregate victory over Racing Santander on Wednesday.

The game followed the pattern of the first leg at the Nou Camp with Valencia successfully packing the midfield and looking to hit the visitors on the break.

Gabriel Milito's header from a corner was pushed against the crossbar early on as Barca pressed forward, but the opener came at the other end when midfielder Baraja scored with a rasping drive from outside the area in the 18th minute.

The 24-times winners struggled to pass their way through Valencia's massed ranks and were hit in a swift counter-attack a minute before the break when David Villa fed Mata to finish inside the near post.

Frank Rijkaard turned to Henry after the restart and the France striker headed in off the post from Silvinho's cross in the 72nd minute, but almost immediately David Silva escaped on the right and crossed for Mata to volley past Victor Valdes.

Barca threw bodies forward and Cameroon striker Eto'o broke into the area to curl the ball inside the far post with 10 minutes remaining but it was not enough to stop Barca going out in the semis for the second season running.

FINAL COPA DEL REY 2008: VALENCIA - GETAFE

Barcelona are such a shocking team- to let a 2-0 lead slip like that is terrible and they are out of the title race pretty much if Real beat Sevilla tonight. With that loss and Villarreal's crushing defeat over Atletico then right now they look to be Real's biggest challengers!

Real Madrid play at home vs Sevilla!!!! very difficult match for Real!!! Sevilla is 6th and with a win can be just 2-3 points behind last CL spot!!!
final supercopa this season (liga winner vs copa winner) was Real Madrid 3 - 5 Sevilla, the andalucian club knows very well how to beat Real...and then perhaps just 3 points between Real and Villarreal, 1 game, Barcelona will visit Real Madrid very soon.
Español vs Racing is a big match, 5th vs 7th to try to clinch final CL spot!!!
rest of matches today are drama to avoid relegation!!!!

Thanks for those clips Conchita  :)
You really must feel that their defense isn't good enough to win the Champions League. If we play them in the semi's I'd be very confident of beating them :grind dance:

Barcelona will destroy Bremen!!! and it's a difficult opponent to Man Utd, if you want to play against a team that can score 3 goals always, wonderful offense, defense is the problem -lot of talk since defeat at Valencia in Copa SF-, and Barcelona main goal this season is to win CL and destroy Bremen, Man Utd or Roma in the process...

Week 30!!! last match!!
1st half:

Estadio Bernabeu, 90,000, Real Madrid 0 - 0 Sevilla!!!!!!!!

There can be no denying the importance of tonight's game for Madrid coach Bernd Schuster. His side have lost two in a row, and their lead at the top of La Liga has been cut to three points. With in-form Villarreal breathing down their neck, a home win is nothing short of essential.
Sevilla were hammered 5-0 in the corresponding fixture last September, but a win tonight would take them within touching distance of the coveted Champions League spots. Frederic Kanoute appears to have shaken off injury and will lead their attack.
Real Madrid have left Robinho on the bench and start with Arjen Robben out wide on the left. Kanoute - as expected - lines up alongside Luis Fabiano up front for Sevilla.
