Neymar nets double as Barcelona reach final

Copa Del Rey, El Madrigal – Villarreal 1 (Dos Santos 39′) Barcelona 3 (Neymar 2′, 87′, Suarez 73′)

Neymar and Luis Suarez goals either side of half time have sent Barcelona to the Copa del Rey final after a comfortable 3-1 win against Villarreal at El Madrigal.

The Brazilian netted in the 3rd minute to put Barca three goals ahead of Villarreal on aggregate having come into the second leg with a 3-1 lead.

The hosts equalised just before half time after former Nou Camp midfielder Jonathan Dos Santos netted on the half volley. Despite rallying in the second half Jose Pina got himself sent off for a horror tackle on Neymar and minutes later Suarez rounded Sergio Asenjo to kill the tie with 20 minutes remaining.

Neymar headed a Xavi cross home in the final minutes to put the tie truly to bed despite a good attacking performance from Villarreal.
