    MADRID — French striker Kevin Gameiro scored twice after missing a first-half penalty to help Sevilla beat Celta Vigo 4-0 in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semifinal on Thursday (Friday, Manila time).

    Gameiro had his penalty saved by Celta Vigo goalkeeper Ruben Blanco in the 28th minute, but made amends with goals from counterattacks in the 59th and 62nd minutes. Fellow Frenchman Adil Rami had put Sevilla on the board with a header just before halftime, and Danish midfielder Michael Krohn-Dehli rounded off the scoring in the 87th.

    The second leg is next week in Vigo.

    Barcelona routed Valencia 7-0 in the first leg of the other semifinal on Wednesday.
