Barcelona beat Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu last night, as they made Copa del Rey history, reaching a sixth consecutive cup final.
No one has ever done that in Europe top five leagues.
Barcelona have made a habit of silencing the Santiago Bernabéu and they did so again on Wednesday, two goals from Luis Suárez and an own goal from Raphaël Varane completing a 3-0 win to go with the 6-2, 4-3, 3-2, 4-0 and 3-1 victories they have collected here in the last decade.
Luis Suarez’s brace sealed Wednesday’s victory and a 4-1 aggregate triumph for the La Liga champions.
Barca defender Pique revelled in the performance post-match, telling reporters his side have achieved something no-one else will.
“Reaching a sixth final…I don’t think what we have achieved is something that will ever happen again in the Copa del Rey,” Pique said.
“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.”
