Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring after an hour before Frenkie de Jong doubled their advantage straight after. Then, Lionel Messi scored a magnificent brace, one of which was a trademark, classic Messi dribble and caressed finish. That’s Ronald Koeman’s first trophy as Barça Head Coach, their 31st Copa overall, and seventh since 2009. Now, Barça are eying a league and cup double. They actually lost their least league game, a 2-1 Clásico defeat at Real Madrid, but are third, two points behind Real and five adrift of Atlético with a game in hand on both.
However, Barcelona and their league-high 69 goals have strung together a 12-game unbeaten league run on home soil – winning five of their last six – but Getafe command plenty of respect after their resilient showing against Los Blancos. Having claimed their first piece of silverware for the season, Barcelona will aspire to keep their dreams of La Liga glory alive when they welcome Getafe to Camp Nou on Thursday night. La Blaugrana thrashed Athletic Bilbao 4-0 in last weekend’s Copa del Rey final, while Getafe managed to take a point from a goalless stalemate with Real Madrid.
Barça have a lot to thank Getafe for, after all it was their 0-0 draw against Real Madrid last Sunday that made the loss in El Clásico pretty much meaningless. With Real dropping points, Barça once again depend only on themselves to win the league: 8 victories in the remaining 8 matches and the title is theirs, regardless of what happens with everyone else. So it doesn’t matter that Real Madrid are currently top of the table, five points ahead of Barça, or that Atlético could be eight points ahead if they win on Thursday. It doesn’t matter that Sevilla have overtaken the Blaugrana and are now in third place.
