Messi scores twice as Barcelona win Copa del Rey trophy


Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, netted a brace as they thrashed Athletic Bilbao 4-0 in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday night.

The Catalans produced four goals within 12 minutes, with Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong also on the scoresheet.

For Athletic, it was the second cup they have lost within a month.

The Basque side lost to Real Sociedad in the final of the 2019/2020 edition of the competition two weeks ago.

Ronald Koeman’s side will now turn their attention back towards the title race, when they take on Getafe next Thursday.
