Adebayor: Scores first Madrid goal
Real Madrid set up a mouth-watering Copa del Rey final against Barcelona following a 2-0 win over Sevilla.
Emmanuel Adebayor came off the bench to score on his home debut for Madrid and put the icing on a 3-0 aggregate win over holders Sevilla.
After Karim Benzema had scored the only goal in Seville in last week's first leg, Real's two Germany internationals combined to make the breakthrough against a feisty Sevilla late in the second half at a nervous Bernabeu.
Sami Khedira's superb pass sent Mesut Ozil clear in the 82nd minute and he rounded goalkeeper Javi Varas and finished coolly into the empty net.
Sevilla defender Sergio Sanchez was dismissed for a second yellow card in the 85th after a late tackle on new loan signing Adebayor, making his debut at the huge arena in central Madrid after joining from Manchester City last month.
The Togolese ace had been on the pitch for around 10 minutes when he controlled a Lassana Diarra cross on his chest and volleyed past Varas from close range.
Real, seeking their first domestic cup since 1993, and Barca, the 2009 winners, will meet in the April 20 final for the first time since 1990 when Barca won 2-0.
The two powerhouses of Spanish football will face off with Los Merengues boss Jose Mourinho hoping to fare better than in the league when his side lost 5-0 to Barcelona at Camp Nou.
