SPANISH CUP-COPA DEL REY FINAL RESULTS | 1º LEG SEMI-FINALS

Spanish Cup - Copa del Rey action tonight with the 1º leg semi-finals scheduled. Here are tonights Kings Cup final results along with all the goalscorers.

Lionel Messi FC Barcelona 2015

FC Barcelona hosted Villarreal in their 1º leg semi-final match to eventually win 3 - 1. I say eventually because Villarreal was right in the match up until mid 2º half. FC Barcelona was more effective with their created opportunities while Villarreal, although managing to get to a goal,  failed to convert all their chances. 

Here is the order of goals:
  • Messi 43rd min , 1 - 0  - pass from Suarez
  • Tigueros 48th  min, 1 - 1 - mistake from Ter Stegen
  • Iniesta 50th min , 2 - 1
  • Pique 65th min.
The main points 1) Villarreal managed an important away goal through Tigueros which keeps the door somewhat open for the return 2º leg match, although a turn around is highly unlikely & 2) Neymar missed a penalty in the 70th minGood match from Suarez who assisted & was very active even though he did not get onto the goal-sheet

Villarreal played well but fizzed out as Barça converted their work opportunities, many as counter-attacks, a style not habitually seen in pass history. Barça are in the box-seat for this tie.


Spanish Cup 2015

Different state of affairs in the other Spanish Cup encounter with a final result 1 - 1 between Athletic Club Bilbao & RCD Espanyol - Copa del Rey 1º leg semi-final game. Competitive match between both with Bilbao starting stronger & perhaps deserving more rewards up to half time. However, Espanyol got their Football play together & bettered as the match went on. So much so, that the visitors managed an important away goal which gives them a slight advantage going into the 2º leg return match.  The goalscorers tonight :
  • Aduriz 10th min, 1 - 0
  • Victor Sanchez 34th min, 1 - 1
