Real Madrid captures 2014 Copa del Rey Championship after beating Barcelona 2-1.
Gareth Bale’s stunning late solo goal settled the Copa del Rey final as Real Madrid beat Barcelona 2-1 at the Mestalla. It is Real Madrid’s 19th Copa del Rey trophy and the first trophy under coach Carlo Ancelotti.
Madrid had led through Angel di Maria’s first-half opener, but Marc Bartra headed in Xavi’s left-wing cross on 69 minutes to level the match.
However, with five minutes remaining, Bale burst down the left flank and into the Barcelona box before slipping the ball between Pinto’s legs.
Neymar then struck the post a minute from time as Real held on.
