BARCELONA, Spain -- Even though Barcelona won the Copa del Rey, duly setting up their chance at a treble with a 3-1 victory over Athletic Club, there was relaxation at the Camp Nou on Saturday night.

Nerves didn't jangle, players were caught on their backsides, the Catalans were outperformed by the Basques.

Barcelona won the Copa del Rey after beating Athletic Bilbao 3-1 at the Camp Nou. Lionel Messi scored a brace, and Neymar chipped in another goal for their team, which enjoyed 74 percent of possession and created 12 goalscoring chances. Barcelona attempted 11 shots and were precise with their accuracy, with seven on target and one that hit the post.

As expected, the Spanish anthem was jeered ferociously by both sets of supporters, a way to express their discontent with the political situation their...

ESPN FC May Player of the Month -- Messi, Ronaldo or Kostic?

The ESPN FC panel respond to your tweets on Arsenal's potential transfers this summer and Lionel Messi's Copa del Rey final performance.

As the calendar turns to June, the bulk of clubs from Europe's big five leagues have adjourned for the season. One club still in action, though, is Barcelona, who will meet Juventus on Saturday in the Champions League final. Aside from being the biggest fixture of the club football season, Saturday also provides the world with one final look at Lionel Messi this campaign.

While the Argentine has racked up three of the past four ESPN FC Player of the Month awards, he has thrown on the afterburners...

Barcelona peaking, Neymar debate, Arsenal hope, Benitez says bye, more

It was a weekend of cup final magic, highlighted by more Lionel Messi brilliance.

Barcelona were always going to be uber-favorites in the Copa del Rey final at the Camp Nou (even the version half-filled by Basques) against an Athletic Bilbao side devoid of Iker Muniain, Ander Iturraspe and Oscar de Marcos. The script was followed, but maybe we didn't expect it to occur so emphatically.

Barcelona weren't devastating, in part because Athletic Club played with the kind of pride and intensity you'd expect. At the back, there was the odd wobble for Luis Enrique's side while, in midfield,...

Blatter elected, Arsenal title hopes, Barca-Juve, next stop for Klopp -- vote!

The Duke of Cambridge has called for reform at FIFA, urging football's governing body to 'put the sport first'.

Football always inspires debate, and this weekend was no exception. Here are five burning questions on the ESPN FC radar.

Vote and comment below or on Twitter using the hashtag #FCtalkingpoints.

The biggest news of the week (year?) was the indictment of FIFA officials from around the world for alleged widespread corruption throughout football's governing body over the past 20 years. Nonetheless, FIFA president Sepp Blatter won re-election for a fifth term on Friday.

Is it fair that Sepp Blatter is still FIFA president?

Treble comes into focus as Messi marches Barcelona to Copa title

BARCELONA -- Three things from the Camp Nou as Barcelona beat Athletic Bilbao 3-1 in the 2015 Copa del Rey final.

1. The Messi final

This will surely go down in history as Lionel Messi's Copa del Rey final. Messi opened the scoring with a wonderful solo goal, finished the game off completely by adding his second late on and was just operating on a different level from everyone else throughout.

Even against a team packed with superstars, Athletic clearly knew who Barca's main dangerman was,...
