Real Madrid 3 - 1 Barcelona [Agg 4-2]
Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and one from young defender Raphael Varane saw Real Madrid go through to the Copa Del Rey final. Real showed quality and dominance throughout the match, not even Jordi Alba’s consolation goal close to time can take away from this fantastic performance.
“We leave here with the feeling that we have done a very good job, our strategy was perfect. You always suffer when you play Barcelona because they always look for space and make things difficult for you, but we have worked very well. Tonight was the right time to take our chances and we did that tonight (…) You have to give young players like Varane a chance, that’s vital (…) I have always said that Cristiano is the best player in the world and he always turns up in big games like this.” - Sergio Ramos (video) | 26-02-13
