Coutinho started Barca's comeback with a 13th-minute penalty, which Messi let the Brazilian - whose form has been questioned - take.

Lionel Messi insisted Barcelona were never throwing away the Copa del Rey after a comeback win over Sevilla on Wednesday. A two goal lead which would soon vanish. "This team wants to fight for all three titles, as is the obligation of Barca every year".

"Since I've been here, I don't know how many times I've said that I want to stay and I'll say it again", he said.

Sevilla, 2-0 winners in the first leg, went behind through Philippe Coutinho's penalty, before Ever Banega had a spot-kick saved by Barca's Jasper Cillessen.

Seamers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami also have done their job well, getting crucial breakthroughs for the team. Before the catch, Pandya bowled tightly to keep Kiwis' batting run rate under control.

"When they took risks with the score 4-1, we found more space and finished them off". He scored the final goal in what turned out to be a rout as Barca cruised to a 6-1 win on the night, as the fans inside the Nou Camp were treated to a vintage Barca performance.

Coutinho got his second in the 54th with a glancing header from Suarez's lobbed pass. Sergi Roberto played Messi wide, made a run into the area where Messi had a pass waiting for him to drill in a fourth goal in the 54th. Sevilla pulled one back thanks to Guilherme Arana before Luis Suarez put the game out of reach in the 89th minute.

Espanyol were reduced to 10 men in the last minute of normal time when Marc Roca was shown a second yellow card and Betis took advantage of the extra man with Sergio Leon and Aissa Mandi scoring the goals to take them into the last 4.
