COPA DEL REY: Valencia added another hard dimension to Barca UCL exit pains with 2-1 win to claim the title.
Valencia have now become the first side to take a lead by two goals in a Copa del Rey final against Barcelona since Real Madrid in 1974 (4-0 Barcelona defeat).
Valencia broke down the left with Jose Gaya as he played the ball square to Kevin Gameiro, a yard inside the area, who smacked a master-blaster past the reach of Jasper Cillessen.
Again,Carlos Soler destroyed Jordi Alba for pace down the right and whiped a great ball into the six-yard area for expert-anticipator Rodrigo to head in giving Valencia a tidy hope they can have it this season.
Messi said that losing the Copa del Rey would make his team feel even worse and it has just happened.
However, Argentine did pulled one for the Laliga Champions in the 73rd minute hoping maybe they could turned it.
Lionel Messi sought some space inside the opposition area, but his low dipping shot couldn’t make it happen.
