Atletico beat Barca to reach Super Cup final

Agency, 10 January : Angel Correa scored late on as Atletico Madrid stunned Barcelona 3-2 in Saudi Arabia to reach the Spanish Super Cup final.

Koke’s clinical strike put Atletico ahead early in the second half. Lionel Messi equalised with a driven finish and then Antoine Griezmann headed Barcelona into the lead.

Alvaro Morata converted a penalty to make it 2-2 before Correra ran through and grabbed the winner with a powerful strike that was too strong for Neto.

It was an incident-packed second half that also saw Messi have a goal ruled out by video assistant referee for handball while Gerard Pique should have taken the game to extra time but sent his header over the bar.

Atletico’s victory means they will face city rivals Real, who beat Valencia 3-1 on Wednesday, in the final on Sunday.
