The Catalan giants overcame their arch-rivals Real Madrid with a 3-0 victory in the second leg of their semi-final tie on Wednesday evening.

Barca have dominated the Spanish cup in recent season, winning the last five which has taken their overall tally to 30 Copa del Rey titles.

“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 told reproters, according to Sport.

“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.”
