The Blaugrana came into their Copa del Rey semi-final second leg tie 2-0 down, knowing they needed a big performance this evening.
Within 12 minutes however they'd halved the deficit thanks to Dembele's wonder strike.
Lionel Messi played the ball into Dembele who was forced out of the box by Sevilla defenders. The Frenchman then took a touch before rifling a strike into the top left corner.

No goalkeeper in world football is saving that, Tomáš Vaclík didn't stand a chance.
It's the first time this season Dembele has scored two games on the bounce and his last goal was against Sevilla ironically, in a recent La Liga showdown.
Fans have reacted to the strike and it's the kind of think they want to be seeing regularly from Dembele.
Dembele literally had a 10-mins shooting practice and scored this banger:heart_eyes:
Keeper didnt stand a chance

Manager Ronald Koeman praised Dembele back in January and stressed how important is is for the 23-year-old to stay in form.
He stated per SportsMole: "[Dembele] is a player we need because we're missing Ansu Fati, who is also a striker who can play out wide. He gets in behind the opposition, he's good one-on-one...
"It's always important to have one who gets in behind to take advantage of the quality of Leo [Messi] and the midfielders."
