Valencia are Copa del Rey champions for the eighth time thanks to a thrilling 2-1 victory over Barcelona in the 2018-19 Copa Final on Saturday night at the Benito Villamarin Stadium in Sevilla.

Goals from Kevin Gameiro and Rodrigo Moreno capped a masterful first half performance from Los Che, but Barcelona would storm back thanks in part to a Lionel Messi goal, only for Valencia to hold firm the rest of the way to claim their first Copa del Rey since 2008. Valencia’s triumph also puts a halt to Barcelona’s streak of four consecutive Copa del Rey titles
