Real Madrid beat Barcelona to reach Copa Del Rey Final

Real Madrid beat rivals Barcelona 3-1 in the Camp Nou to reach the Copa del Rey final.

After a 1-1 draw in Madrid a fortnight ago, Barcelona were favoured to win the tie, but Cristiano Ronaldo was the inspiration with two goals and defender Raphael Varane scored his second of the tie before Jordi Alba netted a late consolation for Barcelona.

Madrid go on to face either Sevilla or Atletico Madrid in the final, with their city rivals taking a 2-1 aggregate lead into tomorrow's second leg.

The two sides will clash again this Saturday in a Primera Division match at the Bernabeu in Madrid.
