Barcelona dominated Athletic Bilbao today 4–0 to win the Copa del Rey with all four goals coming in the span of just 12 minutes.

Forward Antoine Griezmann was the first to draw blood in the 60th minute with his left foot in the one-sided affair.

Midfielder Frenkie de Jong got his turn in the 63rd minute off a header with a perfect assist from defender Jordi Alba.

And just five minutes later, forward Lionel Messi scored after a quick move to the bottom left corner.

But he wasn’t done. The Argentinian found the goal again in the 72nd minute when Alba gave yet another perfect look to give Barcelona the 4–0 lead.
