Barca blows away Sevilla for historic 4th straight Copa del Rey

Sevilla vs Barcelona: Messi, Suarez star in Copa del Rey final victory

Ernesto Valverde's men are halfway to a domestic double - also sitting 12 points clear at the top of the La Liga table - and Luis Suarez opened the scoring 14 minutes into the game before Lionel Messi added the second 15 minutes later.

"He was playing a great game".

"This week I will make the decision public", Iniesta told Mundo Deportivo.

Barcelona claimed their 30th Copa del Rey crown and fourth on the bounce courtesy of a resounding 5-0 win over Sevilla at the Wanda Metropolitano in the Spanish capital this evening.

Barcelona will be without first choice right back Sergi Roberto for the match, who is suspended following the red card shown to the Spaniard in Barca's 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo on Tuesday.

According to the Catalan paper (which is always very well informed about everything going on at the club), Valverde could face sack at the end of the season if Barcelona fail to win the double.

The celebrations started in earnest seven minutes into the second half when Iniesta capped off a fine move.

DF Jordi Alba, 8 - Produced an assist that Messi himself would be proud of when setting up the Argentine for Barcelona's second goal. Arguably Sevilla's strongest defensive figure, his ability to track the movement of Suarez and keep him quiet could prove crucial to the Frenchman's side's success.

Soria was alert to the danger at his near post when Suarez got off a shot from a tight angle after winning the ball back off Ever Banega on 35 minutes, but the Sevilla keeper was beaten for a third time five minutes later.

MF Andres Iniesta, 9 - If this is the Barcelona captain's last final for the club it was a sensational way to go out, with his name ringing around the stadium at the end, sung by both sets of fans.

The tie was effectively put to bed in the 40th minute, Suarez exchanging passes with Messi in the number 10 pocket before finishing low past Soria.

It has been a remarkably straight-forward Copa del Rey final for Barcelona tonight.

Followed by a 3-1 league win over Leganes, strengthening their position as rampant league leaders, it seemed as though Barca were in line for another all-conquering campaign.
