0 492

Barcelona were denied an unprecedented fifth successive Copa del Rey crown as they lost 2-1 to Valencia in Saturday’s final, heaping the pressure on under-fire coach Ernesto Valverde.

Kevin Gameiro and Rodrigo were on target for Valencia while Lionel Messi pulled one back for the La Liga champions.

Barca were way off their best in the first half at the Benito Villamarin and deservedly found themselves trailing 2-0 at the break, as Kevin Gameiro and Rodrigo Moreno clinically punished the defending champions.

Lionel Messi’s 73rd-minute strike gave Barca hope but they fell short.

However, their dominance proved futile as Valencia held on to win the Copa for the first time since 2008.

Watch all the goals and highlights below.
