Barça wins Copa del ReyMay 29, 2017
Barcelona finally added some silverware to their trophy room on Saturday after beating Alaves 3-1 at the Vicente Calderon stadium in Madrid. However, Mascherano was stretchered off with concussion and an injured knee after colliding with Marcos Llorente.
Leo Messi scored the opener at the half hour mark only to see Hernández equalise for Alaves three minutes later from a free kick. However at the end of the first half first Neymar and then Alcacer scored for Barcelona to give them a 3-1 lead going into the break. And that was enough to take this season’s Copa del Rey.
This is the third year running Barcelona have won the Copa del Rey and at least Luis Enrique leaves the club on a high. His last season has been marked by the squad’s inconsistency, but after three years it is understandable he feels spent. The new coach is due to be announced some time today.
1-0 Messi (min 30)
1-1 Hernández (min 33)
2-1 Neymar (min 45)
3-1 Alcácer (min 45+3)
