Sevilla 2-0 Leganés (3-1) Copa del Rey semi-final: goals, report
Joaquín Correa and Franco Vázquez scored at the Sánchez Pizjuán to set up a cup final clash with Barcelona or Valencia.
Sevilla maintained their reputation as a remarkable cup team by seeing off Leganés at the Sánchez Pizjuán to set up a 17th final since 2006.
Joaquín Correa stabbed the ball in to an unguarded net after 15 minutes to open the scoring, following tenacious work by the excellent Luis Muriel.
Leganés pushed forward in the second half but suffered from questionable decision making and a lack of quality when they penetrated the Sevilla area. The home side punished them in the closing stages. Substitute Sandro Ramírez set up Franco Vázquez on the counter-attack. The Argentine forward surged past Dimitris Siovas and arrowed the ball in to the top corner.
Los Pepineros are eliminated from the competition they have brightened with their presence. Sevilla will play Barcelona or Valencia in the final. Whatever happens on April 21st, it will be hard to prevent the 2017-18 Copa del Rey remaining in memories as the year Leganés entertained, delighted, but fell short.
