Lionel Messi failed to inspire Barcelona to the Copa del Rey triumph this season as the Blaugrana were beaten 2-1 by Valencia in the final of the competition.

Valencia got off to a flying start as Kevin Gameiro gave them an early lead in the 21st minute of the game. 

Rodrigo then added to the Blaugrana’s misery by increasing the MurciĆ©lagos advantage to two goals in the 33rd minute of the game.

Barcelona tried to get back into the game and pulled one goal back through Lionel Messi in the 73rd minute. But it couldn’t help them to their second trophy of the season.

Barcelona set an objective of winning treble at the start of the season but only managed to win the la Liga trophy and the Supercopa de Espana.
