HT

Athletic Bilbao 0-3 Barcelona

What a great start by the Catalans scoring 3 times after just 24 minutes through Pedro twice and Lionel Messi.

It was a disaster for the Basques and they are very lucky indeed that they will still qualify as losers for next seasons EL.

The question now is how many more will Barca go onto score in this final?

Result

Friday 25th May

Athletic Bilbao 0 - 3 FC Barcelona
0-1 Pedro 3’
0-2 Messi 20’
0-3 Pedro 25’

There were no more goals in the 2nd half but Pep Guardiola ends his time as Barcelona manager on a high with victory in the Copa del Rey.

Bilbao just couldn't manage with the high tempo that Barca started the game with and came under wave after wave of attack.

They should have been awarded a penalty at the end of the 1st half when Llorente was hauled down and had a couple
of chances to score in the 2nd period but there was no way back for them really when they went down 3-0 after only 25 minutes.

I was pleased that both sets of fans behaved themselves in my teams stadium and that there were opposing supporters even sitting right next to each other.

Any comments?!

Brilliant result, that was the performance that this team has consistently shown under Guardiola and im glad he signed off with another trophy, 14 out of 19 unbelievable. Started with a Copa Del Rey against Bilbao and ended with one.
All of the goals scored with the weaker foot of Pedro and Messi, think the former has nailed on his Spain place.
I think the fans have a mutual respect so was never going to be an issue, Puyol flying the Basque flag at the end showed this.
Gracies Pep!
