COPA DEL REY | BARÇA 7-0 VALENCIA
Barcelona 7 (Seven) - 0 Valencia
Barça ran riot against Valencia in the Copa del Rey, with Messi grabbing a hat-trick and Suárez four goals.
Luis Enrique's Barcelona had a stunning first half in the Camp Nou against Valencia in their first leg semi-final match, rattling in three goals (two for Luis Suárez and another for Leo Messi) and giving a superlative demonstration of football.
Valencia's evening went from bad to worse just before half-time when Shkodran Mustafi was sent off. Things could have been even worse for Gary Neville's side though, with Neymar missing a penalty and Messi hitting the cross bar after yet another wonderful move had put the Argentinean clean through on Maty Ryan.
And in the second half, the Catalans extended their lead further as Messi grabbed his second and Barça's fourth, before completing the hat-trick to make it five. Luis Suárez first levelled Messi's efforts, with a fine header to make it 6-0 just before the 85th minute, before going on to get his fourth. 7-0 the final score.
Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Aleix, Piqué, Mathieu, Alba; Busquets, Arda, Iniesta; Messi, Suárez and Neymar.
Valencia XI: Ryan; Barragán, Mustafi, Aderlan Santos, Gayá, Cancelo, Danilo, Parejo, Andre Gomes, Siqueira; and Rodrigo.
