FCB got to a flyer of a start with Luis Suarez scoring in just the 7th minute of the game nailing one in the middle of the box.The goal was his 22nd of the season in 30 games in all competition. Suarez demonstrated some of his best qualities on the goal, namely speed, power, strength and composure.The FC Barcelona striker scored a stunning goal early in the Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) semifinal game against Atletico Madrid. Javier Mascherano disrupted Atletico Madrid’s attack near the halfway line. Suarez collected the loose ball and did the rest himself.

Then Messi shot a left-footed goal from outside the  box assisted by Ivan Rakitic, where the ball went in poking the goal post.

Atletico Madrid had their task cut-out. They had some hope to go with when Antoine Griezmann scored a close-range header in the 59th minute assisted by Godin following a set-piece situation.
