Lionel Messi's Record In Finals Is Just Outrageous

Barcelona star Lionel Messi GETTYLionel Messi is hoping to win the domestic double

It wasn't long before La Blaugrana took the lead, however, going ahead in the 14th minute through a superb 60-yard punt from Barca keeper Jasper Cillessen that fell to Philippe Coutinho.

Barca started the second half rather more relaxed, though they soon clicked back into gear and opened up a four-goal lead.

Barcelona emerged winners of the 2017-18 Copa del Rey title after producing a masterclass to beat Sevilla in the final on Saturday night.

Barcelona is about to clinch the Spanish league title, but it lost the chance of winning the treble when it was eliminated by Roma in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Messi slammed home the second after good work from Jordi Alba with Suarez adding another, before Iniesta netted from a tight angle.

Cillessen last played in a friendly for the Netherlands last months, impressing in a 3-0 victory over Portugal, but that doesn't compare to the high stakes occasion of a cup final.

"We have a great opportunity to win a title for the club", Sevilla midfielder Pablo Sarabia said.

Coutinho closed the scoring by converting a 69th-minute penalty kick after a handball by a Sevilla defender.

"It's unusual to be knocked out of the Champions League, we gave the impression that we could go far in it".

He also brought on Denis Suarez for Iniesta who got a standing ovation from the Wanda Metropolitano fans for his outstanding performance in the final and his impending departure to China.

Midfielder Ivan Rakitic has been given the all-clear to resume training after surgery on a broken finger.

"Barcelona had a formidable game and when they are like that it's hard to stop them", said Montella.

It got even uglier for Sevilla just prior to the break - Messi played a perfectly weighted pass through for Suarez to latch on to and the Uruguayan clinically fired past the helpless David Soria.

"??I'm very sorry for the fans who have been fantastic, sorry for the disappointments". Messi threaded a lovely ball through the middle of the park for his team-mate, who raced onto the pass before firing home past Soria.

Luis Suarez scores twice, and Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, and Philippe Coutinho also make the scoresheet for Barcelona's record-extending 30th Copa triumph, and sixth in the last decade.
