Barcelona wins their “double” this season by defeating Sevilla in the Copa del Ray Final by 2-0. Another amazing year for Barcelona and accept for that unexpected loss in the Champions League, they did well throughout the season and undoubtedly was the most consistent team out of every other clubs in Spain.
The game started on the favor of Sevilla rather than the favorite Barcelona. Within few minutes of the match start, Barcelona was down to 10 man team with Mashcherano out of the field after a bad tackle which caused him to get a red card. However, after that, Barcelona was forced to play defensively and ended the first half without any goals.
In the 2nd half, Barcelona did get some attacks in but they were the one under pressure and tried to hold on. The 2nd half ended without either team scoring as well. Thus the ga,e went to extra time.

This is where Barcelona started to pull ahead. Sevilla seemed tired while Barcelona seemed faster than ever. After one of sevilla’s player left the field after seeing 2 yellow cards, things became equal and Barcelona immediately took the lead. Messi was once again the play maker of the game as he made both the goals in this match to get them the win.
The first goal scorer was Jordi Alba and the 2nd one came from the feet of Neymar. In the end some may say that everyone knew that Barcelona would win here but we have to say that this was one of the most hard fought win that Barcelona ever pulled off. Thus this match was undoubtedly belonged to Barcelona.
