The Copa del Rey final provides Ernesto Valverde’s Liga leaders with an opportunity to complete the first part of a potential domestic double

La Liga leaders Barcelona will be hoping to complete the first instalment of a domestic double when they face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final.

The Blaugrana have dominated the Spanish top-flight this season, stretching a record-breaking unbeaten sequence to 40 games.

They have taken four points off Sevilla during the current campaign, although they did have to rely on late heroics from Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi to salvage a dramatic 2-2 draw at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in March.

A fourth successive Spanish Cup success is now on the cards for Barca, with Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao the only sides to have previously enjoyed such dominance in the competition during productive runs in the 1900s and 1930s.

Simon Kjaer remains a fitness concern for Sevilla as he struggles with a hamstring complaint.

Sebastien Corchia is still nursing a groin problem and will miss out on a cup final outing, but the likes of Luis Muriel and Pablo Sarabia are pushing for starting berths.

Potential Sevilla starting XI: Soria, Navas, Mercado, Lenglet, Escudero, Banega, N'Zonzi, Sarabia, Vazquez, Correa, Muriel.

Ivan Rakitic is nursing a broken finger picked up during a Champions League quarter-final clash with Roma, but has been cleared to face his former club following surgery.

He could be one of a number of changes made by Valverde to the side which drew at Celta Vigo last time out – with Messi, Suarez, Jordi Alba, Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Samuel Umtiti all ready to step back into the starting XI.

Potential Barcelona starting XI: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Pique, Umtiti, Alba, Busquets, Paulinho, Iniesta, Coutinho, Suarez, Messi.

Match Preview


Barcelona have seen off Murcia, Celta Vigo, Espanyol and Valencia to reach the Copa del Rey final, while Sevilla have overcome Cartagena, Cadiz, Atletico Madrid and Leganes.

The Blaugrana will be looking to defend their crown for a fourth year in a row, with their past successes including an extra-time victory over Sevilla in 2016.

They will head to Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid sat comfortably clear of the chasing pack in La Liga, with it only a matter of time before their coronation as champions is confirmed.

Sevilla, meanwhile, are still scrapping for European qualification and may require a cup triumph to get them back into continental competition for 2018-19.
