Barcelona won their 28th Copa del Rey title as they beat Sevilla 2-0 .
It was an encounter where red cards showered like rain, which summed up to three. Javier Mascherano was sent off late in the first half and Ever Banega was given his marching orders in second-half stoppage time.
Sevilla created the better chances during the regular period, but it was Jordi Alba’s strike seven minutes into extra time that gave Barcelona the advantage, before Neymar added a second in the 122nd minute.
Sevilla also had another player sent off before the full-time whistle as Daniel Carrico received two quick yellow cards with three minutes of extra time to play.
This gave advantage Barcelona to add a second not long after as Messi slid the ball to Neymar on the left of the box and he fired home to seal the Copa del Rey win.
The Barcelona have now completed the domestic double – adding to their La Liga title from last weekend – and have won the Copa del Rey for a second successive season.
