FC Barcelona 2-0 Sevilla – Barça win Copa del Rey

With goals from Neymar and Jordi Alba, Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona defeated Europa League champions Sevilla on Sunday.

Although Sevilla dominated most of the match, a second red card for Sevilla turned the game around in Barca’s favor.

Barcelona won the Copa del Rey 2 – 0 in extra time.

Sevilla had to deal with a short-turnaround having beaten Liverpool 3 - 1 in a hard-fought Europa League final in Basel, Switzerland on the previous Wednesday night.

Sevilla seemed uninspired and their coach Unai Emery said a "lack of freshness" cost his side the match win after the Andalusians came close to defeating Spanish giants Barcelona in Sunday evening's Copa del Rey final.

FA CUP FINAL 2016: MANCHESTER UNITED WIN 2-1

Manchester United defeat Crystal Palace to win FA Cup 2- 1

Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United side defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 to win the 2016 FA Cup.earning coveted silverware for his team and supporters.

Jesse Lingard scored an extra time stunner to win the silver trophy with a 10-man-United squad.

In 1990, 26 years ago a south London hero came off the bench to score a goal for Crystal Palace putting them ahead of Manchester United in the FA Cup Final, followed by a comeback and victory by Sir Alex Ferguson’s Man Utd. Louis van Gaal’s side performed a similar feat  at Wembley in the 2016 edition of the FA Cup Final Crystal Palace v Manchester United on Saturday.

One of Van Gaal’s young players, Jesse Lingard, delivered a game saving winning goal, 20 minutes into extra time, after United defender Chris Smalling was been sent off leaving only 10 men to finish the clash.

Lingard’s strike from Damien Delaney brought a glorious finish to Van Gaal’s 2015-16 season in charge.

‘In spite of being down to 10 players, we showed the spirit that we have shown on the way to the final,’ said Van Gaal. ‘We do fight to the end. When we proved that again in the final, you can be very proud as Manchester United manager and as a fan.’

Palace’s Jason Puncheon sent the ball from Joel Ward’s lofted pass past David De Gea at 78 minutes to open the FA Cup scoring. Alan Pardew broke into dad dancing on the touchline in celebration.

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew played for Palace in 1990.

‘I felt if we took the lead at that stage we would keep it, the way we had defended,’ lamented Pardew after the match.

Juan Mata provided the equalizer for Man United two minutes later when captain Wayne Rooney made a penetrating run from his midfield position charging into the box and crossed to Fellaini whose chest-down fell to Mata, who then struck the heartbreaker.

Man United teenager Marcus Rashford was explosive and energetic but unfortunately limped off at 72 minutes.

Europa League Final - Liverpool Update

On May 18th Liverpool and FC Sevilla will clash at St. Jakob Park in Basel Switzerland in the Europa League Final.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side finished their Premier League campaign in eighth place. So they will have to try again next season to qualify for the Champions League.

In an attempt to strengthen his team, Klopp reportedly has plans to bring Loris Karius, Mario Gotze, and Jeison Murillo to Anfield this summer.

Klopp plans to make a bid for Mainz goalie Loris Karius due to doubts about Simon Mignolet's ability to keep his spot as Liverpool No. 1 next season. Klopp "is looking for reinforcements after witnessing his current first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet make a number of high-profile errors despite being asked to sign a new long-term deal earlier this season."

Klopp has his eye on twenty-two year old Karius, a keeper with a €10 million release clause in his contract, who is one of the brightest and best young shot-stopping talents in Germany today. Signing Karius would give Klopp an alternative to sometimes erratic Belgium keeper Mignolet, who has been named as the most error-prone goalkeeper in the Premier League.

However the former Sunderland goalie has shown quality during Liverpool's run to this season's UEFA Europa League final against Sevilla. Mignolet was given a new five-year contract in January.

Klopp may also try to add talented Inter Milan center-back Jeison Murillo to his side. South American ace Murillo is valued at £22 million. However, Murillo has stated that he desires to stay in Italy. "I want to stay at Inter. I am an Inter player and am not thinking about the future right now."

World Cup winner Mario Gotze has confirmed that he has held talks with Bayern Munich after Klopp expressed interest in hiring his former player that he trained at Borussia Dortmund in his fluid style of football. Gotze said he has already spoken with incoming Bayern boss, Carlo Ancelotti. 

Reportedly Ancelotti may willing to sell Gotze this summer. "I can't make any promises about next season. I have an ongoing contract, and we will see what happens," said Gotze.

Klopp is determined to bring superstar Gotze to Anfield this summer in a deal for around £20 million."

Gotze would no doubt be a popular addition to the Reds side along with Brazilians Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino.

Going into the Europa League Final, Mamadou Sakho will miss out due to serving a UEFA-imposed ban while European football's governing body investigates a doping violation that could carry a lengthier ban.
