Barça out of Copa del Rey

FC Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola said he felt he had let the players down after the team were put out of the Copa del Rey.  Despite an excellent second half performance that had Sevilla against the ropes and a goal from Xavi Hernandez in the 64th minute, Sevilla keeper Andres Palop stopped everything else and the match ended 1-0 to Barça. It meant the Catalans went out on away goals following their 2-1 defeat at the Nou Camp in the first leg.

Barça got some sort of revenge in La Liga yesterday when they won their third clash with Sevilla in less than 3 weeks by a resounding 4 goals to nil with FIFA World Player of the Year Lionel Messi scoring the last two.  The result left them five points clear of Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.
