On Wednesday night at the Camp Nou, Barcelona pulled off a comeback victory over Sevilla to proceed to the Copa Del Rey final.

Barca played impressive football for long spells during the game, but failed to capitalize by scoring the needed second game.

The momentum of the game changed when substitute, Antoine Griezmann conceded a penalty in the second half, only for Lucas Ocampos to be saved comfortably by Barca’s keeper, Marc Andre Terstegen.
