  1. Goodbye

    Barcelona 7-0 Valencia

    So, a humiliating night for Gary Neville. The bad news is his side have to face Barcelona again in the return leg next Wednesday. Hopefully they will give the European champions a better game. Thanks for your company. Until next time...

    Droll tweet of night award...

  3. Oops..

    Barcelona 7-0 Valencia

    Before tonight Valencia were unbeaten in five matches in the Copa del Rey under Gary Neville, scoring 11 goals and conceding just once. 

    You can rip that one up.

    Gary Neville's Valencia were beaten 7-0 by Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi final.

    Humiliation? Perhaps overused, but maybe not tonight?

    Into the closing moments. Valencia need putting out of their misery.

  8. Four goals for Suarez

    Barcelona 7-0 Valencia

    This is a slaughter. Barca make it seven - and Luis Suarez gets his fourth - after Arda feeds the Uruguay forward, who first-time on the turn in off the near post.

  11. Suarez hat-trick

    Barcelona 6-0 Valencia

    A header from Luis Suarez at the back post...and it's a hat-trick for Luis Suarez. That's 34 goals in 33 games for Suarez this season.

  13. Post update

    Barcelona 5-0 Valencia

    They're chanting Luis Enrique's name around the Nou Camp. Barca have been a joy to watch even though they have been playing against 10 men for half the tie. 

  14. Post update

    Barcelona 5-0 Valencia

    Exhibition stuff from Barca. We're into the last 10 minutes. Time for another goal or two from the hosts?

  15. Post update

    Barcelona 5-0 Valencia

    There's a second leg to come at the Mestalla next week. What's the point? Barca are surely through to their sixth final in eight attempts.

  16. Messi hat-trick

    Barcelona 5-0 Valencia

    Terrible defending by Valencia as they fail to clear the ball inside their own area, Messi wins it back and fires past the keeper who should have saved. It's another hat-trick for Lionel Messi. He could end this match with four or five goals at this rate.

    Lionel Messi (hat-trick)

  18. Post update

    Barcelona 4-0 Valencia

    Cheryshev has the ball in the back of the Barca net...but it's disallowed for offside. Valencia's night cannot get any worse.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Barcelona 4-0 Valencia

    Moments before Messi's second goal, Valencia sent on new loan signing Denis Cheryshev from Real Madrid. You can guess the 'welcome' the Russian winger received from the home fans after his inclusion led to Real being eliminated from the competition in December. 

  20. Post update

    Barcelona 4-0 Valencia

    So, who will be first to get their hat-trick? Messi or Suarez?
