Barcelona’s Copa Del Rey record won’t be repeated: Pique

Catalan centre back rejoices his team 3-0 win against Real Madrid at Wednesday in the Copa Del REY Semi Finals.

Gerara Pique does not believe their Cop Del Rey record can get replicated.

Barcelona wall, Pique thinks that the record that the Catalan’s have created cannot get replicated by any other team, following their Clasico win over their arch rivals Madrid.

The Catalan giants are the first team to reach to the Copa Del Rey finals for the sixth consecutive times, 

Luis Suarez scored a brace for his side and own goal from Varane  gave the Catalan giants 4-1 aggregate triumph over Real Madrid in the semi Finals.

In the post match presentation the Barcelona defender stated: “Reaching a sixth final…I don’t think what we have achieved is something that will ever happen again in the Copa del Rey,”

“We’ve won it a lot in recent years but we want to win it again. It’s special to qualify for a final. It’s actually been more out of habit than anything else. Turning things around against Levante and Sevilla and then this.

“It was an important win. Madrid were on top in the first half, but we took advantage of the space in the second half to win the game and the tie. It’s a great way to reach the final. Winning here and reaching the final is always a cause for happiness.”

Barcelona will return back to action in La Liga on this Saturday against the Spanish capital side for the another instalment of the Clasico.

At this stage they are nine points clearer than the third place Madrid ,but the defender has urges his team to avoid any kind of compliancy.

Pique voiced: “We’ve been lucky to win a lot of games here and by some big margins. But it was a complicated match and they’re not that far behind us [in the league]. We can’t relax now because it would not bode well for Saturday,”

“We’re coming through this phase of games – which was really tough [away against Lyon, Sevilla and Madrid twice] – really well. You can’t always play well, but we’re getting results and we hope to get another good result in the next Clasico.”
