Fabregas inspires win over Valencia

An awesome performance from Cesc Fabregás ensured a 2-0 win from Barcelona over Valencia last night at the Nou Camp in their Spanish Cup second leg clash and a thoroughly deserved place in the final.

The former Gunner captain, who got his dream move back to the club where he started as a youngster last summer, scored one and set up Xavi Hernandez for the second to round off a stellar performance by Barca.

Barcelona, who were beaten in last year’s final by Real Madrid, will now play Athletic Bilbao in the final after they spanked third division Mirandes 6-2, 8-3 on aggregate, on Tuesday evening in Bilbao.

Cesc got on the scoreboard first in typical Fabregás fashion in the 16th minute, when Argentine Lionel Messi found him with a sweet pass.Cesc made no hesitation and from a tight angle lobbed ‘keeper Diego Alves to go one up.

Valencia carried on regardless and while they did give Barca some problems, it was two good saves from keeper Alves that kept them in the match.

However, their hopes quickly disappeared with just nine minutes remaining on the clock when Alexis picked out Fabregás in the middle of the penalty area, but realized that Xavi was in a better scoring position than himself.

Fabregas then produced the faintest of touches to pass it across to Xavi, who promptly blasted it into the far corner and out of the reach of Alves.
