Copa Del Rey By: Ambrose Udeme | 22/04/2018

Andres Iniesta grabbed the headlines with a quite expert performance proving that retirement isn't on the cards just yet as Ernesto Valverde secured his first trophy as Barcelona coach with a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Sevilla.

A dazzling display of footballing brilliance, with goals from Suarez (2), Messi, Iniesta and Coutinho, secured Barcelona an amazing fourth Copa del Rey title in a row, and their 30th in total.

There was still an outpouring of emotions, and none more so than from Andrés Iniesta, in tears by the end of it, and there were smiles all round as the players celebrated what goes down as an astonishing thirtieth cup title for the blaugrana.

After a victory that will go down in the club's folklore came an outpouring of emotions among the players, staff and fans - and here we bring you all the magic moments in pictures, courtesy of the Catalans' official website.

While Iniesta collected the coveted trophy, the player’s nearest and dearest joined them on the field at the Wanda, with the ubiquitous ‘We are the Champions’ by Queen providing the soundtrack, as it has done so many times before, for the celebrations of one of the most remarkable nights of so many remarkable nights in recent FCB history.
