Barcelona lifted 28th Copa Del Rey title

Barcelona finished its season on a high by capturing the Copa Del Rey title.
•    Jordi Alba scored seven minutes into extra time and Neymar sealed the victory late to give Barcelona a 2-0 win over Sevilla for its second straight Copa Del Rey title.
•    Neymar closed the scoring in stoppage time after another perfect set-up by Messi to give Barcelona its 28th Copa trophy.
•    It was the seventh time in team history that Barcelona won both domestic titles in the same season. 
•    The Catalan club also lost Luis Suarez with an apparent muscle injury early in the second half. The Uruguay striker, who cried on the bench after being substituted, had been crucial for Barcelona in the final stages of the Spanish league, scoring 14 goals in the last five matches.
•    Sevilla, trying to win its sixth Copa title and first since 2010, controlled possession after Barcelona went a man down and was close to scoring several times, with its best chance coming on a low shot from outside the area by Banega that struck the post in the 50th.
