Athletic Bilbao hosts Espanyol later
in the other semifinal.
Barcelona dominated possession from
the start, but a disciplined Villarreal
defence slowed the tempo and left the
hosts without clear scoring chances
until the final minutes of the first half.
From there on Villarreal was fortunate
to avoid a rout.
The visitors were hurt by the loss of
holding midfielder Bruno Soriano, who
had to be replaced by Trigueros after
he was carted off the field with a right-
leg injury on the half-hour mark.

when he handled the ball in the box
while trying to defend Messi, but Asenjo
bailed him out by blocking Neymar's
spot kick in the 71st.
Suarez almost caught Asenjo off his
line in stoppage time with a long strike
from the center circle that just missed.
