Barcelona will meet Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup final.

The Catalans managed to beat Manuel Pellegrini's Betis in the semi-finals tonight (Thursday), who only raised their hands after extra time and a particularly tense penalty shootout.

Betis, who only last weekend beat Rayo Vaikano 1:2 and overtook Atlético on the way to fourth place, were not far from reaching penalties, but only the inaccuracy of their shots prevented the green-whites from deciding from the penalty spot.

On the other side, Xavi once again got to enjoy the services of Robert Lewandowski, who is suspended from the league games, but can appear in the cup games.

Indeed the Pole made the difference in the first half with a critical possession in the 40th minute when Ousmane Dembele left him free in front of Luiz Felipe.

In the second half, Dembele could have doubled the score but Bravo again headed to the corner.

Two minutes later, Sergio Busquets came on as a substitute for his 700th appearance in all competitions for Barcelona.

In the 77th minute, Betis' efforts paid off when Henrique left to Nabil Fakir who kicked flat into the corner and made a dramatic 1:1.

In the 101st minute, Betis managed to equalize again.

This time Fekir and Luis Henrique gave themselves up, the ball reached Laurent Moron who with his heel found Ter Stegen's net.
