Barca dealing with Copa drama


Barcelona once again dealing with Copa del Rey drama

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno believes Barcelona have a real chance to win the treble this season with the trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez leading the charge.

It's official: Barcelona will face Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final on May 30. The Blaugranas booked their place in the final for the fifth time in the last seven seasons by thrashing Villarreal with a convincing 6-2 aggregate score in the semifinals.

This exciting matchup between the most historically successful teams in the Spanish knockout competition, with a combined 49 titles between them, seems to have become a bit of a tradition. In fact, the Catalans and Basques competed in the...

Below Barcelona, Bayern Munich climb and Liverpool make a rankings return

The ESPN FC crew were surprised by Liverpool's return to the power rankings after a long hiatus.

The Power Rankings are back with the same leaders, but there has been plenty of jockeying for position below Barcelona as well as a trio of new entries.

1. Barcelona (no change)

Luis Suarez's scoring form continued -- the Uruguayan now has four goals in his last three games -- with a pair of strikes in wins over Granada in La Liga and Villarreal in the Copa del Rey semifinals. Meanwhile, Neymar netted twice in the latter and suddenly treble talk is heating up in Catalonia, especially after Real Madrid...

Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao are familiar Copa del Rey final opponents

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno believes Barcelona have a real chance to win the treble this season with the trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez leading the charge.
Luis Enrique says he may play Luis Suarez and Javier Mascherano in their Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Villareal.

At the end of the 2012 Copa del Rey final, when the celebrations had died down, the fans had departed and the press conferences had finished, when the bus waited, engines running, Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola appeared on the pitch at the Vicente Calderon, making his way to the exit. He paused briefly, laid the trophy down among the confetti and posed for one last photograph before walking off through the tunnel. It was past one o'clock in the morning and it was his last match at the club. He wasn't...

Neymar and Suarez star as Barcelona reach the Copa del Rey final

Barcelona, the 26-time winner, will face Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final.

Barcelona qualified for their fifth Copa del Rey final in seven years after beating Villarreal 3-1 at El Madrigal (6-2 on aggregate). Neymar scored twice and Luis Suarez added the third for the Blaugrana.

Luis Enrique's strong lineup showed that, despite the comfortable advantage achieved at the Camp Nou in the first leg, he was not prepared to take any chances. The Catalans' focus was obvious and helped them start the game in style, with Neymar scoring in the third minute.

While the hosts made...

Barcelona have no excuses if they miss Copa del Rey finals

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique says his side will play to win their Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Villarreal, despite holding a 3-1 lead.

Despite Villarreal having traditionally been a tough nut for Barcelona to crack, Luis Enrique has in fact led his team to three victories in as many matches against them this season. Sure, past results count for very little in modern football, but having won both league matches will surely give the Blaugranas a slight mental edge which could prove crucial in decisive moments.

Fortunately, Barca are back on track, having recovered some of the momentum they lost when they were shockingly defeated by...

Lionel Messi voted ESPN FC Player of the Month for February

The ESPN FC crew believe Lionel Messi is the front-runner for February's Player of the Month, but question the omission of in-form Wolfsburg striker, Bas Dost.

Europe's top performers for February were whittled down to a three-man shortlist in consultation with and ESPN FC's writers.

Lionel Messi, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery were those in contention, despite the vociferous protestations from Craig Burley that Bas Dost should've been included for the February award. And, for the second time this season, Barcelona's No. 10 has been named ESPN FC's Player of the Month.

Messi's second victory comes just as his first did: in a landslide. The...
