Copa del Rey: Luis Suarez scored twice as Barcelona thrash Real Madrid




Barcelona striker Luis Suarez scored twice on Wednesday as the Spainish Champions defeat Real Madrid to move within touching distance of winning a record fifth consecutive Copa del Rey.

Real Madrid were the better side for at least half of the Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu but three goals conceded in 28 chaotic, second-half minutes sent Barca through to the final with a 3-0 victory, 4-1 on aggregate.


Suarez would have had a hat-trick had Raphael Varane not beaten him on the line to Ousmane Dembele's cross, Varane's own-goal coming between the Uruguayan's smart finish and a mischeivously chipped penalty. He now has 11 goals in 13 games against Madrid.


"We have other players apart from Leo Messi that can score goals," Barca coach Ernesto Valverde said. "Luis' numbers are incredible, historic for Barca. We know he is always there."
