Valencia 0 Barcelona 2 Copa del Rey (0-3 on aggregate)

Gerard Pique

Barca won 2-0 against Valencia overnight, sending them to another Copa del Rey final.

Coutinho's first goal for Liverpool came in their 5-0 win over Swansea City in January 2013, with Suarez setting him up.

Social media blew up this morning after former Reds Luis Suarez and recently departed Philippe Coutinho combined to score Barcelona's opening goal this morning.

Coutinho was brought off the bench at half-time for his fifth appearance since his £142million switch from Liverpool last month and scored four minutes after the restart, sending the ball into the corner of the net having slid to meet Luis Suarez's cross.

Suarez also set up the second goal, finding Rakitic for an easy goal from inside the area after a breakaway in the 82nd minute.

The 3-0 aggregate victory sends Barcelona into a record fifth successive Copa del Rey final.

"It's my first goal, I've been looking for it a few games but I came out and I'm really happy with that", he told Barca TV.

The three-time defending champions next face Sevilla in a repeat of the 2016 final.

Most importantly, Blizzard has revealed the full list of brand new skins that will be available for the duration of the event. However, certain abilities that provide mobility or invulnerability, such as Winston's Leap, will not cause the flag to drop.

Barca booked their place in the showpiece thanks to a 3-0 aggregate win over Valencia, their progression secured with a 2-0 win in the Mestalla. "And I hope to work very hard and be prepared for the final".

Still just one goal down, Valencia almost got the equaliser on an outstanding header by Rodrigo that beat Barça net minder Jasper Cillessen but clanked off the crossbar.

The Uruguayan was the architect of the goal as he found Philippe Coutinho at the far post with a pinpoint cross. It'll be a great game and a hard one [against Sevilla].

"It's a special moment", Barcelona tweeted quoiting Coutinho.

"I saw the change [Coutinho replacing Gomes] clearly, we had to move things up", Valverde added.

Valencia had centre-back Ezequiel Garay carried off and then saw Cillessen make an incredible save to deny Jose Gaya from point-blank range in the 74th minute.

The only slight setback for Barca was the sight of centre-back Gerard Pique coming off hurt late on, with Colombian global defender Yerry Mina coming on for his debut.
