Barcelona took a huge step toward their fifth Copa del Rey final in seven years with a 3-1 win over Villarreal in the first leg of their semifinal Wednesday.Lionel Messi opened the scoring from Luis Suarez's cutback four minutes before the break, but Villarreal leveled shortly after halftime when Marc-Andre Ter Stegen failed to keep out Manu Trigueros's drive.However, Barca were back in front within a minute through Andres Iniesta and Gerard Pique's header 26 minutes from time made it 3-1 .All of Villarreal's good work was undone four minutes before halftime when Mateo Musacchio slipped to allow Suarez to rob possession and he squared for Messi to slot home his 11th goal in his last nine games.
