New signing opens his Barcelona goalscoring account in Copa del Rey

Philippe Coutinho scored his first goal for Barcelona in their Copa del Rey match against Valencia on Thursday.

The former Liverpool forward stretched at the far post to meet a cross from another one-time Reds favourite, Luis Suarez , and directed the ball across goal and into the left corner.

It gave Barcelona a 50th-minute lead on the night in the second leg at the Mestalla and a 2-0 aggregate advantage as the match continued.

Coutinho left Liverpool to join Barcelona last month in a deal worth £142million.

Barcelona clinched victory in the semi-final, with Ivan Rakitic securing a 2-0 victory on the night and overall 3-0 success.

He struck after more good work from Suarez, who won possession midway through the Valencia half and threaded a pass to Rakitic on the edge of the penalty area.

After a couple of strides forward into the penalty area, the Croatian struck a powerful low shot into the bottom left corner.

Barcelona will face Sevilla in the April 21 final following the Andalusian side's 3-1 aggregate win against Leganes.
