Deportivo Alaves vs Barcelona - Copa Del Rey Final

Barcelona, under Luis Enrique, have now won the Copa del Rey for the last three years running, bringing some silverware to Barcelona having lost out on La Liga to Real Madrid and a Champions League exit came at the hands of Juventus.

Messi put in a man of the match performance, opening the scoring for the Catalans. Following Alaves' equaliser, he played a pivotal role in Neymar's goal, which regained them the lead and then to seal the victory Messi scored his second and Barca's third of the game.


The Argentine scored in the 2009, 2012, 2015 and of course the 2017 Spanish cup final - this hasn't been accomplished since Telmo Zarra completed the incredible feat for Atheltic Bilbao in 1950.
