Real Madrid has won their first Copa del Rey since 2014 after beating Osasuna 2-1 in the final.
The duo of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo played a crucial role in both goals, with Rodrygo scoring a brace and Vinicius Junior setting up the opener just two minutes into the game. Despite Osasuna pulling one back with a goal from former Madrid midfielder Lucas Torro, Rodrygo crushed their hopes of silverware with an opportunistic chip in the 70th minute.
Vinicius Junior was the star of the night, tormenting an Osasuna back four that was simply devoid of answers. The winger was electric all evening, pivoting, darting and nutmegging for fun – a truly world class performance from a player who embraces the big games.
Los Blancos have dropped out of the La Liga title picture this year, but secured one trophy on Saturday. With the Champions League semi-final first leg against Manchester City upcoming, attention quickly turns to the next task.
