Barcelona To Battle Bilbao In Copa Del Rey Final

Barcelona will meet Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final after Luis Suarez and Neymar sealed a 6-2 aggregate win over Villarreal on Wednesday.
Leading 3-1 from the first leg, Barca struck early through Neymar before Jonathan dos Santos levelled.
But after Tomas Pina was sent off for a reckless tackle, Suarez rounded the goalkeeper to put the tie beyond doubt and Neymar added a late header.
Bilbao won 2-0 at Espanyol to win their tie 3-1, setting up the 30 May final.
The final brings together the two most successful teams in the competition’s history as Barca, with 26 wins, have three more than Los Leones.
Despite their cup history, Bilbao have not won major silverware since beating Barca in the 1984 final and they will need to be at their very best if they are to stop Luis Enrique’s current crop, who have won every leg on their way to the final.
