Ronald Koeman’s men have done it! After being abused, written off, slashed, and trolled, Barcelona climbed a mountain and made a comeback against Sevilla in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals after losing the first leg 2-0.

Ousmane Dembele helped the hosts take an early lead, but that was it till the last minute of the game. All chances created by Barcelona went in vain as passes failed to meet their man, and shots hit the woodwork. At the end though, one man stood above all, etching his name in this historic encounter. Who else, but Gerard El Presidente Pique.
Lionel Messi’s corner was kept in, almost foolishly – in hindsight – by Diego Carlos, eventually reaching Antoine Griezmann’s feet. The World Cup winner made no mistake, switched from right to left, sent Carlos for a hot dog, and whipped in the perfect cross. Pique made no mistake, overtaking Jules Kounde in the box and glancing it into the far post.
Jordi Alba out did himself yet again, finding Martin Braithwaite with a delicious cross, which was finished off while diving. A picture perfect finish to an incredible match, and nothing less than what Barcelona deserved. Rejoice, Cúlers!
