Barcelona scored seven against Valencia in Cop del Rey semi-final

Barcelona had a 7-0 win against 10-man Valencia in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final on Wednesday. Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick – his 37th career treble with Luis Suarez hitting four while Shkodran Mustafi got a red card for bringing down Lionel Messi.

Javier Mascherano, Dani Alves and Claudio Bravo were given the night off by Luis Enrique and subsequently replaced by Jeremy Mathieu, Aleix Vidal and Marc-Andre ter Stegen, with Arda Turan also coming in for Ivan Rakitic.

Valencia, meanwhile, handed a debut to Atletico Madrid loanee Guilherme Siqueira as Denis Cheryshev was named a substitute.
