The 2019 Copa del Rey Final was a football match played on 25 May 2019 that decided the winner of the 2018–19 Copa del Rey, the 117th edition of Spain's primary football cup. The match was played at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in Seville between Barcelona and Valencia.[1]

Valencia won the final 2–1, achieving their 8th title overall and the first since 2008.[2][3]

Background[edit]

Barcelona were competing in their 41st Copa del Rey final, extending the competition record, and had won a record 30 titles prior. They were the reigning champions, having defeated Sevilla 5–0 in the 2018 final. The match was their sixth consecutive final, extending the record they set in the previous season, and were seeking a fifth consecutive title, a feat never accomplished before (only Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao have also previously won four titles consecutively).[4]
