Copa del Rey Final 2018: SEVILLA FC 0-5 FC BARCELONA

Recommended Posts

I think it's shit how this draw works and it's unfair on the segunda B teams to be drawing the European standard top flight divisions, but it does give Barcelona  chance to rest players and give opportunities to the likes of Carles Aleñá and fringe players in the first team who could do with extra minutes. Then again, I don't believe that Real Murcia are one of the teams to be underestimated from that division.

Those lower division sides (lower than La Segunda) would tell you that these games save their clubs financially mate.  They're all dreaming of the big hit!

I agree...  Real Murcia isn't the easiest of those sides and could actually be a banana skin if not taken seriously enough.

I remember Real Union knocking Real Madrid out, and the following season they got HAMMERED off Alcorcon, so nobody can underestimate any side in this competition.

To be honest, I think he's ready now, nevermind next season. Problem is, if he doesn't get the required minutes, it might have a negative affect on him. So leaving him in the B team until the end of the season might make sense, but on the other hand, goal scorers are lacking in the first team right now and he sure knows how to score.

 

Marc Cucurella looks comfortable on the ball.

There's a number of quality players in the 'B' team.  On the Arnáiz situation...  For me he needs to be promoted even if he does play less!  He needs to have that sense of advancement and I think he can do what Pedro done for example.

There's never a right time to be promoted.  For me it's all about the head coach in the first team having 'cojones'.

True, it's not like he's the age Bojan was either, he's about 22 now. Get him in the first team.

He couldn’t have done more on his debut to be honest.

Real Madrid 2-2 Fuenlabrada (4-2 agg)

Real Madrid almost managed to do another of their embarrassing Copa del Rey campaigns. The away leg went 0-2 to Real with two penalties and today in the Bernabéu Fuenlabrada who managed a draw should've won easily.

Can you believe it!

Athletic Bilbao are eliminated from the Copa del Rey by third division Formentera with the last kick of the game in the 95th minute... A 95th minute goal from minnows Formentera cause a massive shock!

How good is Carles Aleñà going to potentially be? He was excellent last night for me.

Great to see Sergi Roberto back, Denis have a great game, Arnaiz get on the scoresheet again(he should be called to the first team) and a nice run out for players such as Oriol Busquets.

Paco Alcacer with another goal also. A real poachers goal, which is what he's truly about. Deserves more chances, especially when you consider that the attack can be frustrating, then in the Copa Del Rey you have players like Arnaiz and Paco coming up with the goods, which makes you wonder why they aren't given more chances in la liga. Obviously Paco has had his chances(and took them well) but hasn't had enough of them for me.

Aleñà was indeed brilliant yesterday mate, he seemed to control it all and Arnáiz really does need to get his chance soon because otherwise he WILL be snapped up because he's ready.   But with Dembélé really close to his return and even talk of one or two signings in the January window, I don't know if they're gonna get that chance in the first team proper this season aside from playing in the Copa del Rey.

When Dembele is back mate I'd like to see what himself, Messi and Arnaiz could do together. Suarez is a star and when at his best, the only player who can score 50+ in all competitions apart from Messi and Ronaldo. However, he's in such bad form this season that it's becoming a hindrance to the team in general. He needs some competition and Arnaiz would provide that. I think Messi, Arnaiz and Dembele would be a refreshed front 3 personally and I believe they would be compatible. Also Paco Alcacer is a great option. I was one of those who didn't see sense in his signing originally, although now I'm one who believes he can offer a lot. He scores and offers something whenever he starts in his preferred position. Paco might not be the type who will dribble past everyone and score a goal, but he's a top goal poacher, his movement and ability to get into scoring positions is top notch, as with his link up play.

Sounds like the sort of player Arsenal needs :ph34r:

The problem with Alcácer is that the whole system changes when he plays... The way Barça finalise moves is conditioned by this and the team becomes more of a Real Madrid type team by crossing the ball in a lot more. With Luis Suárez and the Uruguayan's movement, the game is more unpredictable and even when he's not scoring himself, his constant movement creates spaces for others like Messi, wide players or midfielders. Infact for me Luís Suárez even not scoring like last season continues to be the best front man Barcelona can have, there is no better striker out there for Barcelona right now that I can think of mate.

wtf happened to Betis there.

I thought teams take Copa Del Rey seriously considering most of them have a square root of fuck all chance of winning the league.

Yeah, but that’s cup football for you mate. Athletic Bilbao who are one of the cup kings in Spain (the second club with most Copas del Rey) got knocked out by Formentera who are in Spain’s third tier and Real Madrid we’re lucky against another third tier side in Fuenlabrada.

As for the draw... Barça have got a very difficult one because Celta always do well in the Copa and they also nearly always give Barcelona extremely tough games. Infact Celta Vigo knocked Real Madrid out of the Copa del Rey last season.
