Out of La Liga’s race, the Copa Del Rey meant more than ever for both Sevilla and Barcelona as two teams took on each other in the cup’s semi-final at the Sanchez Pizjuan on Wednesday.

The Andalusians took the advantage of the first-leg by an impressive 2-0 victory, thanks to the goals from 

Julian Kounde

 and 

Ivan Rakitic.

Kounde

 told his post-match interview: 

“At the beginning of the move I lost the ball a little, but their block enabled me to recover it, dribble and finish well. I know I can finish well.”

The French centre-back also praised his team-mates for keeping the advantage.

“I think the clean sheet is the work of the whole team,”

 he said.

“We played a complete game with a very good first half, but in the second we suffered more and lost a lot of balls. They came out really switched-on, but we were able to not concede and score a second.”
