Barcelona are trying to win the Copa del Rey for a fifth consecutive time. This is also their sixth consecutive final in the competition. Barca are also the most successful team in the history of this tournament, having won it 30 times.
During the 1/2-finals the Catalans faced their big rivals Real Madrid. The first leg at the Camp Nou ended with a 1-1 draw, which gave Madrid some advantage before the second leg. But at the Bernabeu Barca showed true strenght and crushed Los Blancos with 3-0. Luis Suarez scored a brace for the Catalans, while Raphael Varane scored himself an own goal.
Meanwhile Valencia had to deal with Real Betis at the 1/2-finals and they managed to do it. After a 2-2 draw in the first game in Sevilla, at the Mestalla Los Che won with 1-0 and reached the final. The only goal in the game was scored by Rodrigo just 10 minutes after the halftime break.
For Los Cules this is a chance to record another domestic double, after already winning La Liga. Barca are hurt by the way they got beaten by Liverpool in the Champions League, so for them this is a chance for some redemption at least. The manager Ernesto Valverde is hugely criticized by the fans, but now he has a chance to win another trophy.
As for Valencia, they managed to qualify for the Champions League next season, finishing 4th in the league again. If they manage to win the Copa, it would be a great end of their season.
