Barcelona Beat Sevilla, Win 28th Copa Del Rey

By James Agberebi:

Barcelona defeated Sevilla 2-0 after extra-time in the final of the Copa Del Rey played on Sunday.

Goals from Jordi Alba and Neymar in extra-time secured the win for Barcelona.

Barcelona went down to 10 men on 37 minutes, after Javier Mascherano was shown a straight red card for a foul.

Things got worse for Barcelona as Luis Suarez went off injured on 57 minutes and was replaced by Rafinha.

And two minutes into extra-time, Sevilla were also reduced to 10 men after Ever Banega was sent off.

In the seventh minute of extra-time, Alba put Barcelona ahead off an assist from Lionel Messi.

Daniel Carrico was the second Sevilla player to be sent off after receiving his second yellow card.

And in the final minute of the second half of extra-time, Neymar scored the second goal off another Messi assist to seal the win.

The Copa Del Rey win means Barcelona end the season as double winners after earlier winning the La Liga title.

Also, they’ve now won the Copa Del Rey 28 times in their history.
