90' Final whistle blows! Silverware for Barcelona! The Copa Del Rey Champions! On course for a historic double.
This will forever be remembered as the Andres Iniesta final though. What a way to sign off, potentially, from the Spanish Cup Competition. It will be a pity for the game to no longer be able to boast of the services of Andres Iniesta if he does move on from his beloved Barcelona. Messi, Suarez and Coutinho all getting on the score sheet in a five-star performance by the Catalans!

It's been an absolute delight to commentate on this final. Not the most competitive as we'd hoped but certainly one of the most entertaining. Be prepared to see this Barcelona side plastered all over the front pages of newspapers tomorrow. Certainly deserved.

Barcelona are the Copa Del Rey Champions!

That's it for me! A pleasure as always!
...
89' Messi out to Osmane.. Ineffective so far the Frenchman. But he doesn't need to be effective. His and a fair share of other people's work has already been completed by a certain Spaniard.
...
Great night's work and a trophy at the end of it! Listen to that crowd shout out his name. The King of Catalonia!
...
87' Sevilla looking to make a mark on the game. they've hardly been in the contest. TBF, few could've matched up tonight. The mood these lads were in. Suarez Messi Coutinho and the standing ovation now for the absolute legend of the game. One of the greatest of all time!. Probably the greatest of all time in his position - Andres Iniesta!
...
86' Goal-kick for Sevilla as Layun blocks off Alba's determined sprint.
...
85' Final five minutes of the ninety plus stoppage time remaining. Sevilla would much rather take the whistle right now!
...
Dembele the latest entrant for Barcelona. Looks to weave his magic on proceedings.
...
84' Barcelona play themselves out from the back once again. they have been so sharp in possession tonight. Not a foot wrong!
...
83' Messi for once not able to split the defence with a a pass when it seemed harder to fail. Doesn't do the easy things this man. Doesn't want to.
...
Layun the man on.
...
82' Barcelona slowing it down.. Sevilla get the free-kick.. They make a substitution. One has to ask what's the point but I won't bother.
...
81' Saurez with a cheeky effort with his left. Looked to lift it over the keeper but didn't have the height or the power behind it.
...
Paulinho wins it straight back! 
...
Messi with a dink out to Alba.. Barca lose possession.
...
80' Barca with the ball.. Keeping it all for themselves again.
...
79' Messi looking to cause more damage.. Isn't able to. Yet.
...
78' Barcelona have simply swept aside this Sevilla side tonight.
...
Nzonzi finds Sarabia... But he can't do anything with it.
...
77' Banega with an effort. Aways rising..
...
Sevilla showing some fight. Another effort from them. Straight at CIlissen in the Barca goal.
...
Sergio Busquets Off. Paulinho On.
...
75' Navas breaks down the right and puts the ball in. Header back across the keeper is blocked close to the line by Gerard Pique. Nervy coupe of moments for the Catalans.
...
74' Busquets with the mind games.. Getting involved with Vazquez who buys it! And reacts! Gets booked. What a legend in the dark art Sergio Busquets!
...
73' Horrible couple of challenges from Sevilla.. They look out of it.. They've been dragged one way and then the there all night long!
...
70' Sevilla look to move forward but the forward is offside..
...
69' COUTINHO WITH THE FINISH!

An incredible passage of play. Coutinho interchanges with a teammate and drives into the box and finds the finish. But the ref had blown for a hand ball. Little matter! The Brazilian steps up.. Sends the keeper the wrong way and slots it into the bottom right!

FIVE-NIL!


...
GOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! 
...
PENALTY FOR BARCELONA!!
...
Iniesta is booked after acting out against the ref! 
...
66' Barca playing keep-ball now.. Venture forward with their record signing - Coutinho..
...
64' Rakitic is fouled on the edge of his own box.. Releases the pressure off his defence the Croatian!
...
Sevilla finally break!

Sevilla broke in numbers but Cilissen came up with a good save to keep his clean sheet intact!
...
63' Barca camping on the edge of the opposition penalty area now!
...
OOOHHHH!! BUSQUETS! Even he is getting into the act now!

Decent effort from the edge of the box. just wide!
...
Another one from the previous one..
...
Corner for Barca..
...
Final half an hour into the game. But it's not so much about if Sevilla can muster up a come-back but about how many Barcelona want to get..
...
60' Iniesta and Alba with some lovely interplay and then out to Suarez. Sevilla getting toyed with right now!
...
Wonderful passage of play from the Catalans. They're showboating right now. Sevilla unable to get a foot on the ball. Would love to see the possession stats now..
...
58' OHOHH! INIESTA FLICKS IT WITH THE OUTSIDE OF HIS BOOT! To Alba.. 

All about the Spaniard tonight. What a way to exit this would be. A League Cup and an unbeaten League title..?
...
Still with the League leaders
...
56' Messi with a canon-like effort. Blocked!
...
TERRIFIC SAVE FROM THE KEEPER! So close to FIVE. And we're only 55 minutes into the game!
...
HOW DID THAT STAY OUT!! UMITITI AFTER SAUREZ WAS ON THE END OF THE CROSS FROM THE ARGENTINE!
...
Messi over it..
...
55' Free-kick to Barca deep inside enemy territory.
...
52' WHAT A GOAL FROM THE CATALANS! AND THE MAN OF THE MATCH SO FAR WITH THE FINISH!

What a legend. How can you let this man leave?! HOW CAN YOU! SO MUCH CLASS! 
Suarez with a typical win-back plays it to the maestro who in turn finds Messi. Another defence splitting pass from the Argentine! The legend then rounds the keeper and slots it into the back of the net!
...
GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLLLLL!!!! ANDRES!
...
Ball in to the box is headed away! Barca move forward with that vintage passing. Seville with numbers in defence. NO USE WHEN MESSI IS IN THIS KIND OF MOOD!
...
50' Throw in for Seville.
