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.
