Download Video Barcelona 1 – 2 Valencia Copa Del Ray Highlight
Valencia denied Barcelona an unprecedented fifth successive Copa del Rey crown. Barca suffered a 2-1 defeat to Valencia in Saturday’s final, heaping the pressure on under-fire coach Ernesto Valverde.
Having had a realistic chance at a treble just a few weeks ago, Barca finish the season with only the league title to show for their efforts, a situation likely to increase Valverde’s unpopularity among supporters.
Barca were way off their best in the first half at the Benito Villamarin and deservedly found themselves trailing 2-0 at the break, as Kevin Gameiro and Rodrigo Moreno clinically punished the defending champions.
