Barcelona star Lionel Messi

GETTYLionel Messi is hoping to win the Copa del Rey for the sixth time

In addition to routing Sevilla 5-0 in the Copa final on Saturday, Barca are 12 points clear in the La Liga table, and just five games remaining, making them nearly sure of adding the La Liga title in the next few weeks.

Impressively, the 5-0 win was also the fourth consecutive year in which Barca had won the La Copa.

Barcelona are sure on course to lift the domestic double title with La Liga already in view. It also means a domestic double is nearly certain, given Ernesto Valverde's side are 12 points clear in La Liga with just five games left to play.

Barca were irresistible at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday, blowing Sevilla way in remarkable style.

Sevilla had barely strung two passes together when in the 12th minute Barca keeper Jasper Cillessen took out all 10 outfield opponents with a pinpoint, 80-yard pass over the top.

He had the opportunity to play in Philippe Coutinho who was free on the wing.

It was almost five on 55 minutes as the Blaugrana continued to batter the Sevilla defence with Suarez seeing his header saved by Soria who somehow managed to keep out Samuel Umtiti on the rebound.

They ultimately went into the break 3-0 up, as Messi fired home and then set up the lethal Suarez for his second, as Sevilla were left looking at a damage limitation job.

Valverde's charges rounded off an impressive first half when Suarez returned to bag a brace before the interval, the forward partnering with Messi before slotting a cool finish beyond Soria to round off an attacking move of the highest quality.

With the win, Barça extended its record haul of Copa del Rey titles to 30.

Suarez scored again before halftime with a low shot after picking up a great throughball by Messi and fending off a defender while entering the area.

Iniesta, for whom this is expected to have been his last game in the Cup before leaving Barcelona, was substituted three minutes before the final whistle, receiving a standing ovation from both teams' fans.
