The FC Barcelona thrashed (0-4) to the Athletic club this Saturday in the final of the Copa del Rey held at the La Cartuja Stadium, an unrivaled fight for the Catalans who emerged champions two years later thanks to the great display led by Messi and De Jong.

The project of Ronald Koeman cut the drought of the culé box and savored a Cup as the first title. The Basques, who were playing their second cup final in two weeks after the loss to Real Sociedad, were at the mercy of a Barça that turned their dominance into goals in 12 lethal minutes in the second half.

Griezmann, De Jong and a double from Messi shattered Athletic’s repeated dream of lifting the Cup 37 years later and gave the 31st Cup to the Camp Nou windows.
