Messi Shines As Enrique Ends Barca Reign With Copa Del Rey Title

Default
Luis Enrique ended his FC Barcelona reign on a high, as the Calatan giants were crowned Copa Del Rey winners after defeating Alaves 3-1 in the final.
Barca took the lead four minutes later when Lionel Messi exchanged passes with Neymar, before curling the ball home from the edge of the box, 1-0.

Alaves hit back moments later when defender Theo Hernandez curled home a superb free-kick that left Jasper Cillessen with no chance.
However, Barca restored their lead in the 44th minute as Messi played in Gomes, who in turn teed up Neymar for the simple tap-in. There was enough time for Enrique's charges to grab a third goal when Messi skipped past a couple players, before playing Paco Alcacer, who fired into the bottom corner, 1-3. Nonetheless, Barca managed to see out the closing stages with relative ease to claim the Spanish Cup in Enrique's final game in charge.
