Kevin Gameiro and Rodrigo scored as a valiant Valencia beat La Liga champions Barcelona 2-1 to win the Copa del Rey.

Barcelona said in the build‑up that a win would help ease some of the pain of the Champions League loss to Liverpool, but they were sub‑par again, in the Seville heat.

French forward Gameiro fired in a superb strike to give Valencia the lead before Rodrigo headed in the second.

Lionel Messi’s 73rd‑minute strike gave Barca hope but they fell short.
