That's all for today, goodbye.
Next up, Betis will host Osasuna in the Copa del Rey. As for Barcelona, they will face Real Madrid in the final of the Supercopa, looking to win the competition for the first time since 2018.
Barcelona will face Real Madrid in the final of the Supercopa after beating Real Betis on penalties. First having a goal disallowed for offside, with Raphinha caught beyond the last defender before assisting Pedri, Xavi’s side took the lead through Lewandowski. Receiving a pass from Dembele, the striker had his first shot blocked before thumping in the rebound. Defending for most of the game, Betis scored their first equaliser after the break. Inside the box, Henrique rolled the ball past a defender before finding Fekir who hammered a strike low beyond Bravo. Into extra time, Barcelona regained their advantage through substitute Fati. A free-kick was cleared straight to him, with the winger volleying the ball into the bottom corner. Refusing to give up, Betis struck again, this time through Moron who beat the goalkeeper with a backheel. Just before the penalty shoot-out, Betis went down to 10 men with Guardado receiving two yellow cards in six minutes. Into the shoot-out, the first four penalties were converted before Ter Stegen made two saves. Denying Juanmi and Carvalho, Pedri scored Barcelona’s fourth penalty to see them progress to the final.
GOALLLL! BARCELONA ARE THROUGH TO THE FINAL! Pedri scores the winning penalty with another low spot-kick. Going to the right, Bravo goes the right way for the second time but cannot get a touch on it.

SAVE! Juanmi's penalty is saved. Going just left of the middle, the goalkeeper stays up before beating it away.
GOALLL! KESSIE SCORES! 2-2! Kessie's low penalty lacks power, but it beats Bravo who gets a touch on it. The former Manchester City goalkeeper will be disappointed that he did not save that.
GOALLL! Scoring the second goal of the game, Moron converts the penalty. He slams the ball to the right of the goal past the goalkeeper who went the right way.
LEWANDOWSKI SCORES! After a staggered approach to the penalty, he curls the ball to the left of the goal and into the net.
GOAL! 1-0 BETIS! It is a composed penalty from Willian Jose. He runs up to the ball slowly before tucking it into the bottom corner.
Betis will fancy their chances to progress. They beat Valencia in the final of the Copa del Rey on penalties last season. After missing a spot-kick at the World Cup, will captain Busquets take one today? Willian Jose will take the first penalty.
Barcelona had the best chance to win the game after the break. Getting on the end of a cross from Torres, Fati's flicked attempt went straight into the gloves of Bravo. Behind the ball for most of the final 15 minutes, Betis went down to 10 near the end of the game.

Betis have a clear plan and could have scored on multiple occasions. Flashing the ball across the Barcelona box, they have late runners darting in from outside the area. Gavi and Roberto made vital interventions before the break, with low crosses looking the most dangerous. As for Barcelona, their wingers have been imperative. Dembele and Raphinha have been outstanding, running at the Betis defence and forcing them back. However, as the game progressed, Ruibal started to learn how to defend against the Frenchman. Playing on the left rather than the right, Dembele has regularly had to cut it back onto his stronger foot, slowing down the Barcelona attack.
Barcelona have the lead at half-time thanks to a goal from Lewandowski. Quiet for most of the opening 45 minutes, failing to control several crosses, the Poland international found the net on the 40th-minute. Breaking on the counter, Lewandowski received the ball from Dembele, having his first shot blocked before thumping in the rebound. This came after Xavi’s side had a goal disallowed for offside. Pedri touched in Raphinha’s chipped cross, but the Brazilian was offside before putting it into the box. Betis had chances and could have scored before the break. On the left, Miranda found Henrique, with his powerful strike from close range pushed away by Ter Stegen.
45' SAVE! Ter Stegen makes another important stop. On the left, Miranda waits on the ball before playing it across the box to Henrique. Running onto it, his curling attempt is pushed away by the goalkeeper.
44' Great pass from De Jong. Holding possession on the left side of the Betis box, he has options in front of him. Looking for options, he slides it to Roberto who fails to get it under control.
42' De Jong plays the ball out to Dembele, but his cross goes over everyone. Barcelona recover possession, with Lewandowski getting it on the edge, but his attempt is blocked.
R. Lewandowski
40' GOAALLLL! LEWANDOWSKI SCORES! 1-0 BARCELONA! The ball is played out to the right towards Dembele who moves into the middle of the pitch. The Frenchman could look to go beyond his marker but instead plays it to Lewandowski. Inside the box, his first shot is blocked before crashing in the rebound.
37' Dembele beats Ruibal before cutting the ball onto his right foot. He is stopped by the right-back, forcing the winger to play it back to Alba. He then curls a cross into the box, but it is cleared away.
35' Vital clearance from Roberto. On the right, Henrique deflected cross goes beyond Ter Stegen. With Rodri coming in for an easy finish, Roberto flicks it behind for a corner.
34' On the right, Iglesias chips a cross into the box, but it has too much height on it. Ter Stegen bursts off his line to catch it.

23' GOAALLLL! PEDRI SCORES! 1-0 BARCELONA! On the right wing, Raphinha chips the ball into the box towards Pedri who flicks it towards the goal. On target, Bravo gets a touch on it but cannot keep it out. There will be a VAR check for offside.
22' TACKLE! Araujo with a vital intervention. Kounde looks to play the ball back to the goalkeeper but does not put any power on the pass. Fekir makes the most of it, going around Ter Stegen who rushes out. With an open goal ahead of him, Araujo is there to put in a tackle.
20' Iglesias puts Ter Stegen under pressure, forcing the goalkeeper to launch it out for a throw-in.

5' De Jong wastes an opportunity. With the defence blocking the right wing, Dembele was free on the left. Looking to play a throughball to the Frenchman, he passes it out for a goal-kick. He would have been one-on-one with the goalkeeper.
4' Ambitious from Henrique. With Ter Stegen off of his line, he attempts to chip it over him from the halfway line. However, it bounces out for a goal-kick.
