@OptaJose: "2 - Carlo Ancelotti became the second Italian manager to lift the Spanish Cup after Claudio Ranieri with Valencia in 1999. Character."
There was a late twist in France this evening as moneybags Monaco lost 3-1 to Guingamp in their Coupe de France semi-final. Guingamp will face Rennes in the final on May 3. Elsewhere, Bayern Munich set up a DFB-Pokal final with Dortmund after a convincing 5-1 win over Kaiserslautern. Check it out below.
Bayern to face Dortmund
Sunderland manager Gus Poyet: "I’m realistic, and I’m not going to change now. We played a great game and we deserved something. You need to realise the situation we are in, and I think all of you thought we would collapse. The players know how important it is to the club and fans and the need to keep going. It’s going to give us a little bit of confidence and give us a chance to go with a different two approaches for the rest of the season. I’m sure the players will go there [Chelsea] and play. We are not playing for Liverpool. I’m sure Luis Suarez is going to be happy tonight, with one team less."
Uh oh. We've come to that moment that live text commentators have nightmares about: the dreaded lifting of the trophy. You see, on TV the commentators can raise their voices and sound all excited. What do we do? IKER CASILLAS LIFTS THE TROPHY AND REAL MADRID ARE THE 2014 COPA DEL REY WINNERS. There you go.
@OptaJose: "2 - Real Madrid have won two consecutive finals against Barcelona for the first time in their history. Mestalla."
Goal's Ben Hayward at Mestalla: "A first trophy for Ancelotti and a boost for Madrid as they chase bigger things. Barça, meanwhile, look broken. You have to feel for Tata."
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini: "Chances [of the title] are less than before the match. We will continue fighting to the end. I don’t think there was less confidence. We couldn’t take out of our mind the game against Liverpool. Before the match I was very worried about this match. I’m sure in just three days it is very difficult for the players to take their mind off Liverpool. They are more mentally tired than physically tired. David [Silva] has a problem in his ankle. He played the last two games but playing twice in a week wasn’t possible. We will see how he is for Monday."
What a finish at Mestalla - and what a moment for Gareth Bale! The Welshman's stunning goal was enough for Real Madrid in the end, with Neymar coming oh so close to grabbing a dramatic equaliser late on. And what an awful week for Barcelona, who have now bowed out of the Champions League, Copa del Rey AND lost again in La Liga.
Three minutes added on at Mestalla, where Barcelona are really piling on the pressure now.
WOW! Neymar looks certain to equalise with two minutes to go as he stabs the ball wide of Iker Casillas, but the ball comes back off the post and straight into the arms of the Real Madrid goalkeeper! Can Barcelona find that equaliser???
GOL: What an unbelievable gol! Gareth Bale receives the ball at his feet wide on the left wing and initially is impeded by Marc Bartra, but then shows a display of absolutely outstanding speed to gallop down the line and into the box before stabbing past Pinto! Incredible!
I was saying?!
@13ORKB: "@GoalUK Real Madrid is a very useless team, im going to sleep before I get upset. I can see already how this game will end"
You've gotta have faith, faith, faith...
Barcelona's latest promising attack breaks down as Dani Alves receives the ball on the edge of the box before sending an awful strike high into the crowd behind the goal. Real Madrid go down the other end and Luka Modric has a pop from range, but the ball rolls a few yards wide. Decent effort.
@OptaJoe: "2 - After scoring only once in his first 37 Premier League appearances, Connor Wickham scored twice in 10 minutes. Unlikely."
Ben Hayward reports from Mestalla: "Barcelona fans are making themselves heard now after Bartra's equaliser and the Madrid fans are quiet. The momentum and the noise have both suddenly shifted in this stadium."
GOL: Okay, NOW we have a GOOOOL! Xavi swings in a corner kick and Marc Bartra gets up absolutely wonderfully before planting a header in off the post. Pepe allowed him far too much space.
