Goals seem guaranteed whenever these two sides meet and we are backing another high scorer in the Copa del Rey final at the Wanda Metropolitano

Saturday evening's Copa del Rey final at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano sees runaway La Liga leaders Barcelona face Sevilla.

These two sides met in the league three weeks ago when they played out an entertaining 2-2 in Seville and we should expect another open contest when they meet in the Spanish capital this weekend.

Latest odds

Barca have won this trophy in each of the last three seasons and bet365 price them at 1/2 (1.50) to win in 90 minutes.

Sevilla, meanwhile, can be backed at 5/1 (6.00), with the draw priced at 10/3 (4.33).

Team news

Both teams rested plenty of players in their respective midweek La Liga clashes who will return for the final.

Sergi Roberto was sent off for Barcelona on Tuesday evening at Celta Vigo in La Liga but is available on Saturday, whilst Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Gerard Pique should all return to the starting eleven.

Ivan Rakitic has had surgery on a broken finger and it remains to be seen whether or not he is available.

Injured Sevilla centre-back Simon Kjaer looks to be their only absentee.

Another high scoring clash

This fixture has been one of the most high scoring and thrilling games in Spain over the last few seasons, and despite Saturday being a final, we are unlikely to see a cagey encounter.

The last 16 matches in all competitions between Barcelona and Sevilla have produced 63 goals - an average of just under four a game - and backing more strikes this weekend looks a wise bet.

Tips and predictions

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is priced at 19/20 (1.95) and is a selection that has paid out in 12 of the last 16 meetings between the two teams, including the most recent one. 

Prices correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
