Barcelona made history on Thursday night as the club reached yet another Cop del Rey final with a 3-0 aggregate win over Valencia.

Goals from Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic gave Barca a 2-0 win at Mestalla, to follow on from a 1-0 first leg win at Camp Nou last week.

That means that Barcelona have become the first team in history to reach the Spanish cup final in five consecutive seasons.

Barca certainly seem to love the Copa del Rey, they have won the last three in a row and will be hoping to win the trophy for the 30th time.

Ernesto Valverde’s side will take on Sevilla in the final on April 21st with the venue still to be determined.
