Watch: Ronald Koeman celebrates wildly after last-minute Pique header


Barcelona came back from two goals behind on aggregate to take their Copa del Rey semi-final against Sevilla to extra time, but they left it late for their second.

After losing 2-0 in the first leg in Seville three weeks ago, Ousmane Dembele gave Ronald Koeman’s side the perfect start at the Camp Nou, getting them back into the tie with a screamer in the 12th-minute.

From there, Sevilla held on, staying one goal ahead on aggregate, right until the final minute of injury-time – having missed a golden opportunity to put the tie to bed after Lucas Ocampos saw a penalty saved by Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

It was Gerard Pique, who had spoken in the build-up of the importance of turning this tie around to help kickstart their season, who got Barcelona back on level terms to take it to extra time, with a perfect headed effort down into the bottom corner.

There were wild scenes of celebration as Pique did a Steven Gerrard and celebrated down the lens of the camera, while you could see how much it meant to Koeman on the touchline.
