MADRID -- Sevilla have ended Leganes' surprising run in the Copa del Rey.

Sevilla scored early and late through Joaquin Correa and Franco Vazquez to defeat the Madrid club 2-0 on Wednesday, advancing to their second Copa final in three seasons with a 3-1 aggregate score.

Leganes, based just south of the capital, eliminated Real Madrid in the quarterfinals and Villarreal in the round of 16.

Five-time Copa winners Sevilla will face either Barcelona or Valencia, who play on Thursday, on April 21.

Barcelona, who beat Sevilla in the 2016 final, won the first match against Valencia 1-0 at Camp Nou Stadium.
