Barcelona cruise into Copa del Rey final

Barcelona are into the Copa del Rey final.

Barcelona, leading 5-0 from their first leg against Almeria, cruised through 8-0 on aggregate thanks to second-leg goals from Adriano, Thiago and recent signing Ibrahim Afellay - his first for the club.

Barca coach Pep Guardiola opted to rest a number of his first-choice regulars with their tie all but done and dusted.

The likes of Lionel Messi, Xavi and David Villa were all left on the bench, but it mattered little as a much-changed Barca ran out convincing winners nevertheless.
