    • - It's been some final at the Camp Nou. A full-blooded affair, with Sevilla putting in an outstanding defensive display, as well as snatching the vital goals they needed. Atletico had their chances, but ultimately failed to make their fresher legs count. Thanks for joining our live coverage!
    • 90+3 There goes the whistle! And for the second time in four years, Sevilla lift the trophy! What a fantastic match, which Sevilla thoroughly deserve to have won
    • 90+2 There's dancing on the touchline, and the Sevilla fans are going crazy!
    • 90' BUT THEY DON'T NEED TO NOW! GOAL! 2-0 SEVILLA! Navas latches onto a long ball over the top, rounds De Gea, and squeezes a right-foot shot into the net for his 10th goal of season!
    • 89' It's all Madrid in the closing stages, but Sevilla are defending stoicly
    • 88' Aguero has room on the left, but can't get a cross in past the wall of white on the edge of the box. Madrid have a corner, but again Sevilla clear
    • 87' Sevilla make another change, with goalscorer Capel off for Perotti
    • 86' It's been a particularly impressive display from Sevilla's central core of defence and midfield tonight, with Zokora and Renato refusing to give anything up
    • 85' The ball is hoofed in, and Palop again punches clear. The ball finds Thiago, who hits the ball wide on the volley. He's been out to meet everything tonight, Palop, and the clean sheet has been well earned so far. Madrid have still got five minutes plus stoppages to spoil his night, though
    • 84' Reyes is fouled (again!) on the right wing, and this time earns a freekick. Kanoute, the offender, gets a yellow card
    • 83' Ujfalusi and Reyes play a one-two on the Madrid right, but Zokora cuts it out wonderfully. He's all over the pitch at the moment
    • 82' Capel, meanwhile, breaks away down the Sevilla left, and is similarly bundled over without the referee blowing! At least he's consistent...
    • 81' Reyes recieves it on the left, and looks to have been brought down by Luna, but the referee waves play on
    • 80' Madrid in possession and working the ball across the midfield
    • 78' Zokora is down now, and getting treatment. Not sure what for, though he's been running his socks off, the former Spurs man. He's off on a stretcher, but rather nonchalantly dangling is legs off the side. I'm pretty sure he'll be back on after some magic sponge treatment
    • 77' This is more like it from Atletico, who just fail to break through with Aguero, after a good interception from Konko
    • 76' Corner Madrid, which is drifted to the edge of the area, and FORLAN VOLLEYS! Good stop by Palop! The right foot volley was poorly placed, but well struck by Forlan, and well parried by the Sevilla keeper
    • 75' Madrid play the ball safely around the midfield, but aren't moving the ball with enough energy for a side 1-0 down in a cup final!
    • 74' Just over a quarter of an hour to go, and the tension is palpable! A couple of the players are still close to boiling point (I'm looking at you, Ujfalusi), and there's surely enough time for a bit more drama in this match!
    • 72' They're all getting involved, from the players to the managers and substitutes! Finally some sense of normality has been restored, after what can best be described as 'handbags' from both sides
    • 71' Capel breaks down the left, and Perea puts in a HUGE sliding challenge! It was an absolute cracker, but Capel has stayed down, and it's all kicking off now!
    • 70' Aguero is put through into the left of Sevilla's area, and squares for REYES! JUST WIDE!
    • 69' Ujfalusi finally goes into the referee's book, for what looked like dissent. Hard to believe that he's only just gone in, and it wasn't even for a foul!
    • 68' Just over 20 minutes left of the match, and Palop is pretty comfortable at the moment. You never know, with Forlan on the pitch and capable of scoring at any moment, but Sevilla are looking more assured holding onto their lead at the moment
    • 67' Negredo is off for Sevilla, and Romaric comes on in his stead. It's been another mixed performance from the Spanish striker, who should have put Sevilla 2-0 up
    • 66' It's looped in to the far post, but Sevilla get it clear, and Forlan's challenge for the ball sees it squirm out of play for a goal kick. Madrid pushing and pushing, but Escude and Squillaci have been immense
    • 65' They're cranking up the pressure now, Madrid, and win a corner
    • 64' And now Madrid switch the ball left, before cutting inside to Forlan, who shoots from 30 yards! It was viciously hit, but into a white shirt and cleared
    • 63' Madrid have the ball on the right, which Capel manages to clear, but only as far as Garcia, who shoots from range! Always going wide from the Madrid sub, whose effort was optimistic at best
    • 61' Meanwhile, Madrid have made a second change, with Jurado coming on for Simao
    • 61' Full-blooded challenge from Squillaci on Aguero. Both stay down, but it doesn't look too serious
    • 59' First roll of the dice for Madrid, with Raul Garcia coming on for Assuncao
    • 58' Didier Zokora has the ball in Madrid's half, and picks out Kanoute with a ball over the top. Kanoute cleverly backheels to NEGREDO WHO'S UNMARKED! BUT SHOOTS STRAIGHT AT DE GEA! What a chance that was! Should be 2-0 Sevilla, but De Gea gets it clear and Madrid remain a single goal behind. What a turning point that could be in the match!
    • 56' Sevilla have a couple of corners, but Renato takes a heavy touch on the right side of the area, and goes sliding into Lopez, who stays down. The ref gives the foul, and the pressure is off Madrid for the moment
    • 55' Wonderful run by Konko down the right! He beats two red and white shirts, before releasing Navas. Navas's cross is a good one, but it's just cut out before Kanoute can get on the end of it
    • 54' Navas, meanwhile, shoots from a very long way out, and sees his effort go miles over the bar. Not one of his better efforts
    • 53' And now Dominguez and Renato are forehead to forehead! You can see how much it means to both sides, but it's getting niggly again
    • 51' Ujfalusi picks up the ball on the right with Madrid breaking, and sends a long ball through to Aguero. Palop comes storming out of his area to head clear though! Smart thinking from the Sevilla keeper
    • 49' Simao works a yard of space on the right, and forces in a shot! Palop punches clear! He's not looking too assured under the crosses, but has done just enough so far
    • 48' Madrid have a throw deep on the left, which they work into a dangerous position in the Sevilla box! But the referee pulls them back! Not sure why, but the throw will be retaken. It comes to Thiago, who shoots from range! Well saved by Palop high to his left!
    • 47' Ujfalusi and Zokora go nose to nose after another tasty challenge from the Madrid man! If those two kick-off, i can't see who'd be able to split them up!
    • 46' And it doesn't take long for Madrid to take the game to Sevilla, working the ball to Aguero on the edge of the box, but failing to squeeze out a shot. They're shooting towards the bulk of their 50,000 odd fans now, and the volume levels have increased suitably
    • 45' We're back underway in the Camp Nou!
    • 45+1' And the referee blows for half-time! It's advantage Sevilla at the interval, after Diego Capel's sensational opener. There's sure to be more twists in this match, can Sevilla hold out, or can Madrid win their second trophy in a week? Stay put to find out...
    • 45' There's going to be one minute of stoppage time
    • 44' But Madrid are sending some long balls themselves now, with Simao just unable to latch onto one on the left wing. It's getting increasingly frantic now!
    • 43' Sevilla clear the corner, and hoof it long with just minutes left to hold on to their slender lead
    • 42' And Ujfalusi has the ball now on the right, and now he squares to FORLAN! INHES WIDE! Quality save from Pulop, touching the low shot wide of his left post for a Madrid corner, and Sevilla are under their first period of really sustained pressure in the match!
    • 41' Lopez steals the ball on the Madrid left, cuts inside the fullback at the byline and squares to FORLAN! He scuffs it! What a chance that was for Forlan, on the edge of the area
    • 39' Aguero picks up the ball on the right wing at the half way line, with Ujfalusi overlapping, but is well marshalled by Zokora again, and the Madrid attack breaks down
    • 38' The atmosphere in the Camp Nou is incredible tonight, blanketed in red and white and enjoying what has been a fiesty first half of Cup Final football!
    • 37' It's Diego Capel's turn to hack Reyes down now, deep into Sevilla's half on their left wing. Palop gets an unconvincing punch to it, and Sevilla smother the red and white shirts well to force the ball away
    • 36' Navas plays a sweet give and go with Kanoute before spreading left to Luna in acres of space! His looping cross can't pick out a white shirt though, and De Gea has the ball
    • 34' Luna gets that one wrong though, sliding through Reyes from behind and earning the game's second yellow card
    • 32' This is the best football Sevilla have played in some time, applying constant pressure to Madrid's dangerous forwards. They're well worth their lead so far
    • 30' And Forlan almost gets onto the ball, but Konko covers well
    • 28' Forlan and Aguero are waiting high up the field for Madrid at the moment, while Kanoute is dropping deeper for Sevilla, and picking the ball up early to spark something himself
    • 26' The game's being broken up by niggly fouls now, which will suit Sevilla no end, as Madrid are completely devoid of any fluency at the moment
    • 25' It's looped in, and Perea can't control! Almost poked in by Squillaci, GREAT SAVE! Quality keeping, low to the right
    • 24' Antonio Lopez gives the ball straight to Navas on the left, before Renato is brought down clumsily by Thiago just inside the Madrid half. Freekick
    • 22' He concedes a cheap free kick on the edge of the area, though, which Reyes hits some distance over the bar. Waste
    • 20' Zokora, meanwhile, is beginning to boss the area in front of the Sevilla back four
    • 18' Reyes darts along the wing for Madrid, but again are found wanting. They're creating chances, but aren't doing enough to put them away, Madrid
    • 15' Ujfalusi is looking his usual menacing self on the Madrid right, clattering into a challenge which was rugged, to say the least
    • 12' Navas is looking dangerous for Sevilla, but so Madrid are looking more solid after that goal
    • 10' Madrid are pressing, but Sevilla are making a much more solid start to the match than they did in their final La Liga game at the weekend! Hang on though, Ujfalusi skips away down the right and squares... OFF THE LINE! Aguero's effort is blocked by Squillaci, and then Forlan's follow up hits the defender as well!
    • 8' That move started from the Sevilla left back position, and ended up with Capel picking up a ball from the right wing and blasting the ball home with his left foot. Stunning goal. Less stunning play from Renato, though, who is the first recipient of a yellow card in the 2010 King's Cup final
    • 5' GOAL! SEVILLA OPEN THE SCORING! What a start to the final for Sevilla! Capel gets the goal with a superb shot past de Gea after Navas's deflected attempt bounced kindly for him, and Madrid are going to have to come from behind if they're to snatch the double!
    • 4' Sevilla win possession back, and look to settle into the match with some early possession. Navas bursts clear down the right and crosses for KANOUTE! Can't make the connection he wants! Madrid clear
    • 2' Atletico battling up the left flank, looking to make the first breakthrough at Camp Nou
    • 1' And we're off!
