Suarez: 'It was not even a foul'

Also worth remembering that Atletico missed a penalty, through Kevin Gameiro, and had an Antoine Griezmann goal wrongly disallowed.

The headlines are...

  • Barcelona reach the Copa del Rey final.
  • They will face either Celta Vigo or Alaves, who play their second leg tomorrow
  • Luis Suarez will not play the final as he is suspended.
  • Neither will right-back Sergi Roberto, who was also sent off

I'm exhausted just from live texting this game, I don't know how the players on the pitch feel.

FULL-TIME - Barcelona into Copa del Rey final

Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

YELLOW CARD

Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

Atletico defender Filipe Luis hacks down Lionel Messi. He's booked.

And Messi is taking an age to 'recover' from the foul. Is time up for Atletico?

Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

Koke's corner is headed away by Gerard Pique and keeper Miguel Angel Moya runs back to his goal.

Then Filipe Luis' shot is blocked by a brilliant Samuel Umtiti block.

THE KEEPER HAS COME UP.

Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

It's attack v defence now. Barcelona are hanging on. Just. Filipe Luis' cross is cleared. And wait, it's a corner. Two minutes left.

INJURY TIME

Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

Five minutes added on. Can the 10 men score once against the nine men to take us to extra time?

Antoine Griezmann can't reacted quickly enough to turn Angel Correa's cross home.

RED CARD - Luis Suarez (Barcelona)

Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

Unbelievable. Luis Suarez is the third player to be sent off. And Koke's acting has probably cost him there. Suarez maybe touches the Atletico playmaker in the back of the net and Koke goes down holding his face.

That means Suarez will miss the final. Barca end the game with NINE men.

Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

Somebody has to gamble! Koke whips the ball across goal, three yards out, but no Atletico player is there to tap the ball home and force extra time. Diego Simeone can't believe it. Into the final minute.

YELLOW CARD

Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

Barca striker Luis Suarez is booked. There are less than three minutes left now. It's getting tense down on the pitch.

Noel Fitzpatrick: Offside yes, but Walcott/Sterling et al, watch how Luis Suarez finished!!

'Oh no... he was offsides'

Barcelona's response to that Luis Suarez disallowed goal looks like it was written by one of those internet lolcats

DISALLOWED GOAL

Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

It's 1-1 on disallowed goals now as Luis Suarez slams the ball into the back of the net. Unlike Atletico's goal that wasn't counted, Suarez was actually offside so it's the right call.

GOAL - Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid (3-2 agg)

Kevin Gameiro (83 mins)

Oh, hello. HELLO.

Atletico Madrid are back in this tie. Antoine Griezmann unselfishly squares the ball to Kevin Gameiro, who makes up for his missed penalty by tapping the ball into the empty net.

Barca keeper Jasper Cillessen appeals. I have no idea what for.

One goal for Atletico forces extra time now.

Dave Wood: Time for an Atleti comeback of Patriots proportions! 

MISSED PENALTY

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Oh no. Kevin Gameiro's penalty is awful and hits the crossbar before going over. 

Was that Atletico's final chance to get back into the game?

PENALTY TO ATLETICO

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Huge moment. Gerard Pique brings down Atletico striker Kevin Gameiro and it's a penalty.

FULL-TIME

Bayern Munich 1-0 Wolfsburg

In Bavaria, Bayern Munich have reached the German Cup quarter-finals with victory over Wolfsburg.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Lionel Messi is so close to scoring a stunning free-kick for Barcelona. He absolutely smashes one in from 25 yards, it's rising and it cannons off the crossbar. Luis Suarez can't turn the rebound home.

YELLOW CARD

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Atletico defender Stefan Savic hacks down Luis Suarez and is booked. He will miss the final now. But the way things are going, so will all of Atletico's players, staff and fans.

YELLOW CARD

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

He has been warned already about this and Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen is booked for timewasting. He'd better be careful now since Barca have used all their subs...

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Atletico Madrid have 18 minutes to score twice - I really can't see it happening.

As I write that, Angel Correa pops a 20-yard shot right into the hands of Jasper Cillessen.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

The final change of the game and it's a popular one. Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta returns from his third injury of the season and replaces Ivan Rakitic in midfield.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Barcelona make another defensive minded switch as Sergio Busquets, returning from injury, replaces Arda Turan.

RED CARD - Yannick Carrasco (Atletico Madrid)

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Hmm, that might be the end of Atletico Madrid's hopes of a comeback. 

Yannick Carrasco picks up a second booking for a crazy sliding tackle on Arda Turan. There was no need for it.

And their numerical advantage is gone.

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Gerard Pique urges the Barca crowd to get behind the team as he slices away a cross that was bound for Antoine Griezmann.

YELLOW CARD

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

The referee has a word to Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen for timewasting. And Ivan Rakitic goes into the book for a bit of dissent.

Andrew Reyes: Clearly Sergi Roberto wants to attend his birthday party early

He's 24 today...

DISALLOWED GOAL

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

All kinds of drama here. Atletico Madrid should be level on the night. Antoine Griezmann is played in on goal and rifles the ball across Jasper Cillessen into the back of the net. It's ruled out for offside. But it shouldn't have been. The whole dynamic of this game has changed.

RED CARD - Sergi Roberto (Barcelona)

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

This is big. Barcelona were just about to bring on Aleix Vidal for Sergi Roberto at right-back. Literally the next time the ball went out of play.

But Roberto goes in with a studs-up lunge on Filipe Luis and he gets his second booking. Barcelona are down to 10 men. And Vidal sits down again.

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Barcelona have not lost any of the previous 68 games in which Luis Suarez has scored (W64 D4).

That's a ridiculous stat.

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Atletico's Yannick Carrasco fancies a shot 25 yards out but he wildly lashes at the ball and it's well wide. They have 35 minutes to score twice.

Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid (3-1 agg)

Barcelona are looking more like themselves in the second half and Lionel Messi slips the ball to Ivan Rakitic who tries - and narrowly fails - to get the ball back to the Argentine. Liquid football.
