Copa del Rey final, 21 April

Copa del Rey final, 21 April

The blaugranes will face Sevilla in the second ever cup final between the two clubs with the only precedent being Barça’s 2-0 win in 2016

Barça are in the Copa del Rey final yet again. Ernesto Valverde’s team have seen off Valencia in the semi-finals of the competition and will face Sevilla in the final after Vincezo Montella’s team defeated Leganés in the other semi-final. The blaugranes will be looking for their 30th Copa del Rey title and their fourth in a row in the competition.

The final will be played on 21 April as announced by the Spanish League and Football Federation last summer. The venue and kick-off time is yet to be decided for a game which has only one precedent in the competition. In the 2015/16 season, Barça and Sevilla met in the final of the Copa de Rey with the blaugranes taking victory a 2-0 victory in the Vicente Calderón stadium thanks to goals from Jordi Alba and Neymar.

With the final being played on weekend in April in which a full league programmes is scheduled, FC Barcelona’s game against Villarreal from week 34 of La Liga will have to be rearranged. The cup final comes after a midweek round of fixtures with the blaugranes travelling to Vigo to take on Celta. All in all, a demanding week in store as they aim to add a 30th Copa del Rey title to their extensive list of honours against one of the best teams in La Liga.
