Barcelona's Copa del Rey clash with Sevilla yesterday is a game Blaugrana fans won't forget anytime soon. The Catalan giants hosted Lopetegui's side for the second leg of their semi-final encounter, with the Spanish giants needing an impressive comeback in order to make the final, having lost the reverse leg 2-0, which they did in dramatic fashion.
Ousmane Dembele scored early in the first half, netting in the 12th minute to slash the deficit by half. From then on, Barcelona frustratingly had to wait for their second goal but the equalizer did eventually come, with Gerard Pique scoring in the dying minutes.
The veteran center-back bagged a last-gasp header in the final minute of added time to draw things level and send the game into extra-time. Jubilation broke out once Pique's attempt found the back of the net, with Lionel Messi's celebration in particular going viral.
The Argentine's reaction to the equalizer won over the hearts of the fans given that many questioned his dedication and determination at the Camp Nou after being forced to stay at the club. La Pulga could be seen ecstatically jumping up and down in joy, proving that his love for the Blaugrana remains unwithered. Check out the Argentine's priceless reaction in the video below (Messi can be seen walking down from the corner flag on the opposite end of Griezmann).
Fast forward to minute 3.16 of the video to catch the equalizer and Messi's reaction
Martin Braithwaite went on to score the winning goal, netting Barcelona's third of the night in extra time to send the Copa del Rey's most successful team to the final. There they will face either Levante or Athletic Club, with the second semi-final set to be held on Thursday.
