Marcelino: 'Copa del Rey semi-final still open'

Valencia boss Marcelino says that his team will "try to be heroes" in the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final against Barcelona.

Valencia boss Marcelino has said that his team will "try to be heroes" in the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final against Barcelona at the Mestalla next week.

Luis Suarez scored the only goal of the match as Barcelona recorded a 1-0 win in the first leg of their last-four tie at Camp Nou on Thursday night.

Marcelino has conceded that it will be difficult for his team to turn things around next week, but the Spaniard has insisted that "the tie is still open".

"It was a strong performance from us but not a good result," Marca quotes Marcelino as saying. "It will be very difficult for us to progress but not impossible and we will try to be heroes, we believe the tie is still open and we have hope.

"Playing at the Mestalla will benefit us and the fans will be big, hopefully we will be the third team to shutout Barca this season."

Valencia have won the Copa del Rey on seven occasions, with their last success coming in 2008.
