In a tight and nervy game, best remembered for Alvaro Arbeloa’s terrible stamp on David Villa, Pedro’s wrongly disallowed goal in the second half and that idiotic Real Madrid fan who shone a green lazer at Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo’s towering header in the second period of extra-time sealed a 1-0 win for Los Blancos.

Barcelona were thus denied a treble although they would have their sweet revenge days later in the UEFA Champions League semi-final as Pep Guardiola’s men shot themselves to a La Liga and European Cup double.

Real Madrid on the other hand celebrated their Copa Del Rey win in elated fashion (open top bus parade and all sorts) – that was of course until Sergio Ramos dropped and broke the famous Kings Cup.
