Barcelona just love a 6-1 win to complete a comeback.

The Blaugrana were famed for recording that scoreline to overcome Paris Saint-Germain back in 2017 after losing the first leg of their Champions League tie 4-0.

This time around against Sevilla, they were only 2-0 down heading to the Camp Nou, but still recorded a sextet of goals in front of their home fans.

Philippe Coutinho put his poor form behind him with a brace, while Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic and Sergi Roberto got the other goals.

Sevilla's Guilherme Arana made it 4-1 on the night to make fans a little bit nervous, with the visitors only needing one more goal to progress at that point.

However, Suarez and Messi struck late on to settle the nerves.

And Barca's sixth goal - tucked home by Messi - really was a work of art.

Ernesto Valverde's side took one-touch passing to a new level, embarrassing the Sevilla defence in their own box.

The touch and calmness of the Barca players is just beautiful to watch, with Messi having the freedom of the 18-yard box to weave his magic and finish it off.

Barca's win now means they have reached the Copa Del Rey semi-final stage for the ninth consecutive season.

The tournament holders are in imperious form right now and they still have Ousmane Dembele to comeback from a minor injury in the next week or so.

Coutinho's return to form is also a huge boost, with Messi doing his best to inspire confidence by handing him the penalty for the first goal.

Coutinho celebrates

The Brazilian looked rejuvenated after, scoring a brilliant header to make it three on the night.

After the game, Coutinho said: “Thanks to Messi for letting me take the penalty.

“He’s great and gestures show how big he is. I tried things the last couple of weeks but it did not work out. I never stopped working.”

Things aren't looking bad for the Blaugrana.
