Barcelona win 27th Copa del Rey title: Messi vs Ronaldo comparison seems distant
Ronaldo vs Messi comparison is not going to be that much frequent as it used to be in the past. The sort of contribution that Lionel Messi is making in significant wins of his sides â€“in all sorts of tournaments â€“has brought major success to his teams and improved his standing in the world of soccer.
His contribution in the victories of his sides is so big and so significant that his side has started looking like a one-man victorious army of sort. Lionel Messi-inspired and completely dominant Barcelona impressed the soccer fan as they won a league and Cup double as they swept aside Athletic Bilbao 3-1 to win the Copa del Rey for a 27th time on Saturday.
There is no denying the fact that it was an out and out Messi show. He treated the Athletic Bilbao players as novices as his dribbled past four Athletic players and lashing home a low finish before Neymar added a second before half-time.
Later he went on to score a second time in the game to kill the tie as a contest 17 minutes from time before Inaki Williams grabbed a consolation for the Basques. Despite Athletic fans dominating two-thirds of the 99,000 capacity Camp Nou, there was nothing their players could do to stop a rampant Barca that is now just one game away from just the second treble in the club’s history. Luis Enrique’s men face Italian champions Juventus in the Champions League final in Berlin on June 6.
While talking about the match and the win Barcelona boss Luis Enrique said â€œFrom the start we saw a great Barca with all the players at a high levelâ€¦It is a shame for Athletic to have played these finals in the last few years against a Barca playing so wellâ€¦They deserve a Cup and I hope they soon get it because the behaviour of their fans was spectacular.”
Messi was even praised by their opponents. Athletic coach Ernesto Valverde said, â€œHe is a player that we always say appears in the most decisive moments and obviously he wasn’t going to miss out in a finalâ€.
