Barça and Sevilla to meet in Copa del Rey Final for the first time

The two teams have met 12 times in the tournament, never in the final, with Barça winning eight of those ties

FC Barcelona will face Sevilla in this year's Copa del Rey Final, the Catalans' sixth finals appearance in eight years, third in a row, and 37th overall. A Barça victory would see them extend their all-time tournament record to 28 championships.

Sevilla beat Celta in the other semi-final, setting up a never-before-seen matchup in the Copa del Rey Final. But the two sides have faced off in the tournament 12 times before. Here are the precedents:
