Barcelona Stuffed..

Recommended Posts

Getafe produced a stunning performance to beat Barcelona 4-0 to progress to the Copa del Rey final 6-5 on aggregate.


Bernd Schuster's side faced an uphill battle to reach the final after their 5-2 defeat at Camp Nou in the first leg, but they conjured up a memorable performance to end Barcelona's dreams of the league and cup double.


Getafe broke the deadlock on 37 minutes when Francisco Javier Casquero volleyed home from the edge of the box.


The home side grabbed a second goal two minutes from time when a mistake by Gianluca Zambrotta allowed Dani Guiza to score.


Angel Vivar Dorado added a third on 70 minutes when he headed home from close-range.


Getafe went in front in the tie with a fourth goal on 73 minutes when Guiza raced through to rifle home.


Barcelona threw everything into attack in the closing stages in a bid to get back into the game, but Samuel Eto'o wasted a glorious opening and Javier Saviola had a shot kicked off the line as Getafe held on for a remarkable result.
