Lionel Messi has a knack for scoring in the Copa del Rey championship game. / FCB

In the Copa del Rey finals in 2008/09, 2011/12 and 2014/15 — all of which FC Barcelona won — there was one common thread: Leo Messi scored a goal.

The Argentinian has scored four decisive goals in the Copa del Rey championship game as Barça have won three of the five they have appeared in since 2009.

In fact, when Messi scores, Barça win the Cup.

And this coming Sunday, he'll have another opportunity to score in a Copa del Rey final. Let's hope the trend continues.
