That is all from our coverage of tonight's Copa del Rey semi-final clash between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. This is Shaurya Vineet signing off. In case of any comments or feedback, you can get in touch with me on Twitter @ShauryaVineet. Until then, goodbye and take care!
...
The referee had a lot of decisions to make and he didn't get all of them correct. Three Red Cards and one Penalty later Barcelona reach the final of the Copa del Rey.
...
Messi struck a wonderful free-kick from all of 35 yards which Moya was never going to save but it cannoned off the inside of the crossbar. Atleti did find their equaliser as Gameiro atoned for his penalty miss when Griezmann squared the ball to him.
...
They then had another chance when Gameiro won the penalty, again a poor refereeing decision. But the Atletico forward blasted his penalty over and Barcelona were given another life line.
...
Atletico will feel hard done by the referee here. Griezmann had found the back of the net but it was incorrectly ruled out for offside, a horrible horrible decision by the linesman.
...
Game Over! Barcelona reach the final yet again. The defending champions will be defending their title against the winner of tomorrow's game between Alaves and Celta Vigo.
...
FULL-TIME: Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid
...
90+6' YELLOW CARD: Busquets is booked for kicking the ball out of play.
...
90+4' YELLOW CARD: Luis is booked for his lunging tackle. Luis Enrique is livid on the touchline. 
...
90+4' Messi tries to break on the counter but Filipe Luis tackles him from behind and the Argentine looks to be in severe pain.
...
90+4' Barcelona are hanging on for dear lives. Atleti win a corner and Moya makes his way up .
...
Barcelona are on the ropes here. Can Atletico find a way through?
...
90+2' Correa makes his way into Barcelona's box and tries to cut the ball across the face of the opposition's goal but the ball strikes Griezmann and goes out.
...
5 minutes of added time.
...
With that, Suarez will miss the final should Barcelona progress.
...
BARCELONA DOWN TO 9 MEN!
...
90' RED CARD: And another red card, the third of the night. Luis Suarez has been given his marching orders for a foul on Koke. This is his second booking in less than 4 minutes.
...
89' Atleti play the corner shot and Koke swings the ball into the box. The ball evades everyone in the box and goes out. That one was begging to be buried but no Atletico player could get on the end of it.
...
88' Atletico Madrid win another free-kick in Barcelona's half but fail to make any inroads in Barcelona's defence and win a corner.
...
This game has burst into life and still can swing in favour of the away side. Can Simeone's side make the last few minutes count?
...
87' YELLOW CARD: Luis Suarez is booked for a foul on Juanfran.
...
Still 1-1! Can Atleti find another?
...
85' GOOALLL!!! Barcelona score but it is ruled out for Offside. Correct decision this time from the linesman. It was Messi who pings the ball above Atleti's defence and into the path of Suarez, who buries it home but the linesman has his flag up.
...
The ball is played into Barcelona box and Pique tries to clear it but can only head it into the path of Griezmann. The Frenchman looks to go for goal but instead cuts the ball back for Gameiro who taps into an open net. Just when I was wondering if Atletico can score, they have and now need just another goal to force the game to extra-time.
...
83' GOAALLL!!! Atletico score! And it is Gameiro who makes up for his mistake. 
...
Can Atletico find a breakthrough tonight. They still have a little more than 10 minutes to save the match.
...
80' GAMEIRO MISSES THE PENALTY! GAMEIRO goes for power over positioning and his shot brushes the top of the crossbar and into the stands. That penalty sums up the game for Atletico.
...
The decision is slightly dubious as Pique got the ball and didn't bring down the forward. But Atletico were robbed off a chance earlier. Can they make it count now.
...
79' PENALTY TO ATLETICO after Pique brings down Gameiro inside the box.
...
77' HOW DID THAT NOT GO IN? The free-kick is in Messi territory. The Argentine stands over it - 30 yards from goal - and unleashes a left-footed piledriver that evades the wall and looks destined to be going towards the top corner but it crashes against the inside of the crossbar and Atleti survive. 
...
77' YELLOW CARD: Savic is the next to go into the referee's book for a strong challenge on Suarez. The tension is flaring here at Camp Nou.
...
76' Yellow Card: Cillessen is the next player to be booked, this one for time wasting.
...
75' The game looks to be over for Atletico Madrid barring a late influx of goals. Does Simeone's charges have it in them to step up to the challenge when it counts?
...
73' Correa has some space just outside Barcelona's box and he tries to test Cillessen from range but his shot lacked the venom to test the Dutchman.
...
72' Substitution: And now it is time for Iniesta to come on. The Spaniard comes on to replace Ivan Rakitic.
...
71' Substitution: Sergio Busquets comes on to replace Arda Turan. The Spaniard makes his return to the team after a lengthy injury layoff.
...
69' YELLOW CARD/RED CARD: Yannick Carrasco is the second player to be sent off tonight. The Atletico forward lunges into a challenge on Turan near Barcelona's box and the referee deems it be worth a booking. He was booked in the first half and the numerical advantage of Atletico is over.
...
68' Pique saves Barcelona. Saul curls the ball from the left and it looks to be on his way to Griezmann but Pique is there to clear it.
...
67' Atleti win a corner after Juanfran is released down the right. The full-back tries to find Gameiro in the middle but his cross is diverted.
...
66' YELLOW CARD: Rakitic is the next Barcelona player to go into the referee's book for showing dissent.
...
64' Atleti are trying their best to make the most of their numerical advantage but Barcelona continue to hold on for now.
...
62' Substitution: Javier Mascherano comes in place of Denis Suarez as Barcelona try to fill the space left by Roberto's dismissal.
...
61' Substitution: Kevin Gameiro comes on to replace Fernando Torres. That is Atleti's third and final change for the night.
...
Terrible terrible decision making from the linesman there. Griezmann was onside and the goal should have stood. Huge decision in favour of Barcelona.
...
59' Atletico Madrid score but it is ruled out for offside! Griezmann was released into the box and the Frenchman finds the back of the net but it is ruled out for offside.
...
Aleix Vidal was preparing to come on to replace Roberto who was already on a yellow but before he could make his way the Spaniard has been given his marching orders.
...
WAIT! It is a RED CARD. Sergi Roberto is off and Barcelona are down to 10 men. Roberto was already booked early in the first half and it is an early shower for the Spaniard.
...
57' YELLOW CARD/RED Card: Sergi Roberto has been booked again for a foul on Filipe Luis. 
...
Aleix Vidal is preparing to come on. It will be interesting to see who he comes on to replace?
...
55' Denis Suarez plays a ball across Atleti's box and Luis Suarez almost gets on the end of it. That could have been the game if the Uruguayan had reached it.
