Valencia will face Getafe in the Copa del Rey final after a nailbiting 3-2 win over Barcelona at Mestalla on Thursday.

With the semi-final evenly poised at 1-1 heading into the second leg, Ruben Baraja fired the hosts in front after 17 minutes before Juan Mata added a second shortly before the interval to put some breathing space between the two sides.

Substitute Thierry Henry then brought Barca back into the match in the 72nd minute, but Mata scored again minutes later to restore Valencia´s two-goal cushion.
