One down, two to go! Barcelona are still in line for a first ever Spanish triple after beating Athletic Bilbao 4-1 in the Spanish Cup final.
Toquero gave the thousands of travelling Basque fans something to shout about when he headed in Yeste's corner with less than ten minutes on the clock. But before half time an impressive run and shot from Touré Yaya levelled the scores.
Messi gave Guardiola's side the lead after Eto'o's first effort was saved soon after the restart, and three minutes later Bojan ran through to curl a shot in off the post. A few minutes after that Xavi beat Gorka with a well struck free kick to make it four, and it was all over.
The Catalans are expected to tie up the league this weekend, and that would only (?) leave the Champions League final against Manchester United in two weeks' time.
