(Football) Real win Copa del Rey despite missing Ronaldo
(04-17 10:57)

Gareth Bale's late gallop and goal sealed Real Madrid its 19th Copa del Rey title on Wednesday in a thrilling 2-1 win over Barcelona, as the Welshman filled the void left by the injured Cristiano Ronaldo to claim his first career trophy.
Ronaldo's extra-time heroics gave Madrid the 2011 Copa del Rey title at Barcelona expense, and in his absence Bale scored in the 85th to make sure Madrid repeated the feat at the same Mestalla Stadium with his first goal in three "clasico'' matches.
Angel Di Maria put Madrid ahead in the 11th minute, but Marc Bartra headed Barcelona level in the 67th.
The loss is a blow for a Barcelona, with the Catalan club eliminated from Europe and its domestic league title defense in danger. --AP
