Barcelona oust Sevilla from King´s Cup throne

15 January 2008 23:43

BARCELONA (AFP) - Barcelona ended Sevilla's reign as King's Cup holders here on Tuesday as a dull 0-0 draw was sufficient to see the Catalan giants through in their last 16 second leg clash.

Barcelona progressed thanks to the away goal rule as the first leg had finished 1-1.

With both sides missing several key players as they had either been called away on African Nations Cup duty or were suspended and injured, the quality of the game naturally slipped a notch or two from their previous encounters.

It was the hosts who came closest to scoring in the first-half as first Thierry Henry shot over the bar in the 32nd minute and then two minutes later another former Premiership player Eidur Gudjohnsen had his shot stopped twice by the Sevilla 'keeper.

The second-half saw Barcelona easily counter any resistance, which was slight, that Sevilla could offer, though, they did give the hosts a moment of concern as highly-rated fullback Daniel Alves rattled the bar with a freekick seven minutes from time.

Defeat leaves Sevilla effectively with just the Champions League to play for this season, as they are 10 points adrift of Real Madrid in the title race.

Real Madrid, themselves, are in danger of exiting the competition as they trail Real Mallorca 2-1 after the first leg, though they are at home on Wednesday.
