 02/26/2013  Barcelona, Spain

Real Madrid pulled off a convincing 3-1 2nd leg victory over Barcelona at the Camp Nou on Tuesday, earning a trip to this year’s Copa del Rey Final.

Jose Mourinho’s men were trailing at the start of the match thanks to Barça’s away goal in the 1-1 1st leg at the Santiago Bernabeu, but Cristiano Ronaldo proved to be the deciding factor, scoring two vital opening goals for the visitors.

The defeat extends the Blaugrana’s recent downward spiral, but they’ll have a chance to redeem themselves with a rematch in La Liga on Saturday.

Goals: Ronaldo (pen. 13′, 57′), Varane (68′), Alba (88′)

FC Barcelona (4-3-3): Pinto, Alves, Piqué, Puyol, Alba, Xavi (73), Busquets, Fábregas (Villa 59), Pedro (Tello 71), Messi, and Iniesta

Real Madrid CF (4-2-3-1): Diego López, Coentrão, Varane, Ramos, Arbeloa, Khedira, Alonso (Essien 84), Di María, Özil (Pepe 77), Ronaldo, and Higuaín (Callejón 71)
