Neymar equals Puskas' record in Copa final

Neymar equals Puskas' record in Copa final

Neymar scored Barcelona's second goal in a Copa
del Rey-clinching 3-1 win over Alaves on Saturday,
becoming the first player to score in three
consecutive finals since Real Madrid great Ferenc
Puskas.
Barca beat Athletic Bilbao in 2015 and Sevilla in
2016 to clinch back-to-back titles, with Brazil
international Neymar netting in both games.
And as they collected a third straight Copa, Neymar
was again on the scoresheet, putting Barca 2-1 up
at the Vicente Calderon after Theo Hernandez had
cancelled out Lionel Messi's opener.
The last player to score in three consecutive finals
was Madrid's Puskas, between 1960 and 1962,
although his side twice lost to rivals Atletico
Madrid before beating Sevilla.
