FC Barcelona are through to their eighth Copa del Rey final in the last decade -their fifth in as many years-, an achievement unmatched around the big European leagues.


With their progression to the Copa del Rey final, Barça have got to more finals than any other Spanish side in the last decade.

Chelsea's Hazard: Barcelona have a player who is not from this planet | Sport

Of the upcoming Champions League tie against Barcelona, Hazard declared it's "It's a great Champions League game.

As far as my memory can tell, his best day was in the Copa del Rey final against Alaves last year, when he played as a full-back because of Javier Mascherano's injury. That's his best experience after a season and a half. More here.
