Luis Suarez makes HUGE Copa del Rey admission despite Sevilla win

Luis Suarez makes HUGE Copa del Rey admission despite Sevilla win

Coutinho signed for Barcelona in January from Liverpool.

Clement Lenglet, who has been tipped to join Barca for next season, then handled in the penalty area with 21 minutes to go and Coutinho coolly slotted home the resulting spot-kick.

"At the start of the season we would have all taken [the domestic double]".

The well-connected Barcelona-based daily says club chiefs were deeply unimpressed by Valverde's approach in this month's surprise Champions League exit in Rome, and that defeat to Sevilla "could leave him in danger" of losing his job.

He also brought on Denis Suarez for Iniesta who got a standing ovation from the Wanda Metropolitano fans for his outstanding performance in the final and his impending departure to China.

It has been a remarkably straight-forward Copa del Rey final for Barcelona tonight. Andres Iniesta made it four in what could be his last ever final with the club.

"Barcelona had a formidable game and when they are like that it's hard to stop them", said Montella.

"I would have given my arm to be able to do what Iniesta does when I was a player. Today is a very special and emotional day". "We are not in our best form, we have to react".

Barca exploited that approach with the opening goal as goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen's long ball downfield released Coutinho, who had a clear route through to tee up Suarez for a simple finish.

Sevilla rallied but after a couple of half-chances Barcelona doubled their lead when Iniesta sent Alba flying down the left. The impressive Andres Iniesta set Alba free inside the box and his deft backheeled pass found the on rushing Argentine maestro, and Barca's all-time highest goalscorer, to dispatch into the net. Suarez received a pass from defence and played a quick one-two pass with Messi before the Uruguayan dispatched for his second on the night and a 3-0 halftime score.
