Valencia have ended Barcelona’s four-year run of winning the Copa del Rey, with a shock 2-1 victory over the champions on Saturday night.

Barca were looking to win the competition for the fifth year in a row, a feat that has been achieved in Spain before.

in spite of that, Valencia took a two-goal lead in the first half, to stun Lionel Messi and co.

Kevin Gameiro and Rodrigo scored within 10 minutes, to put Marcelino Garcia’s men in control of the game.
