Barcelona has once again won the Copa Del Ray defeating Sevilla 5 goals to zero thanks to a series of fantastic performance from Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Philippe Coutinho.

This is Barcelona’s 30th Copa Del Ray title. They have become the first team to win the titles four times in a row in eight decades.

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde in his post-game press conference said, “We were eager to win the trophy, the players, and the club itself. We wanted to give the fans a reason to be happy and I hope they enjoy this victory.”

Suarez scored the first goal of the game in the fourteenth minute of the game giving Barcelona the first advantage. Messi scored a goal in the 31st minute of the game.

Suarez hit his second goal in the 40th minute. At the end of the first half, Barcelona were up 3-0. Sevilla had a mere 35% ball possession during the crucial game.

Sevilla were nowhere in the game from the word go and were seen struggling. They had just one clean shot at the goalpost but that too didn’t yield any result.

Iniesta who is rumored to be leaving the club soon said, “It was a great night, for me and for the whole team. There were a lot of strong emotions, a lot of different feelings. I’m happy to be able to help the team win this title.”
