Video: Barcelona players take turns to take pictures with Messi after Copa del Rey win


No statistics will do justice to Barcelona’s incredible display vs Athletic Bilbao yesternight. After a goalless first half, Barça showed their opponents no mercy, hitting them for four unanswered goals in the second half. Antoine Griezmann’s goal in the 60th minute opened floodgates for more goals and the Basque outfit crumbled under pressure, undoing an hour of good work. The tie was done and dusted by the time the clock struck 72′ as the Catalans hit a goal every three minutes from there.

Barça Universal brings to you the five statistics that stood out from an evening of incredible individual and collective displays.

While a superb collective display, Frenkie de Jong stood out from the group with a goal and two assist to his name. He was not named the Man of the Match, but displayed a performance for the ages.

The victory in the Copa del Rey takes their tally to 97 official trophies, helping them leapfrog Real Madrid as the Spanish club with the most titles to their name.

Lionel Messi took home the award for the MVP for the game, which is incredibly tough to argue against. His record in finals for Barça is outrageous, and fans can hope that he can add to his tally.

Antoine Griezmann missed a relatively easy chance in the second half, forcing an insane save from Unai Simon. However, he was rewarded for his incredible movement soon enough, as he scored the opener for Barça, taking his personal tally in the last five finals to six goals.

This is the first time Barcelona have won a trophy since the league title of 2018/19 – a timeline that spans nearly two years. For a club and fanbase so used to seeing trophies, it feels like forever.
