Copa del Rey, Final

Valencia 3 - Getafe 1

Valencia are this season's cup winners after they beat Getafe 3-1 in the Vicente Calderón stadium.

Ronald Koeman's side raced in to a two goal lead with only ten minutes on the clock, Mata heading in a David Silva cross to open the scoring and Alexis making it two with another header from Villa's corner soon afterwards.

Granero gave the Madrid based side hope, converting a penalty on the stroke of half time after Moretti brought down Contra inside the area. But with six minutes to go Morientes reacted quicker than his marker to head the ball past Ustari after the keeper could only parry a fierce free kick from Baraja.

It was another blow for Getafe, who lost last season's final to Sevilla and were knocked out of the UEFA Cup by Bayern Munich just six days ago. Valencia will be in Europe next year though after their first cup title since 1999, and the under pressure Koeman can rest easy, for a few more days at least. (16.04.08)
