It was only the fourth major trophy in Real Betis’ history, having won the 1934-35 La Liga title and the Spanish Cup in 1977 and 2005. Captain Joaquin, 40, who came on and scored in the shootout, also played in that 2005 win.

Real Betis boss Manuel Pellegrini lifted silverware for the first time since the 2015-16 League Cup final with Manchester City.

This was only the second Copa del Rey final not involving Barcelona or Real Madrid since 2010.
