F.C Barcelona face Athletico Bilbao in the Copa Del Rey final on Saturday at Seville. Barcelona entered the final on the back of a disappointing El Clasico loss in Madrid. The Blaugrana sit 2 points behind leaders Atletico Madrid in the La Liga table. After failing to win the Spanish Super Cup final and once again facing an early exit in the UEFA Champions League this might be Ronald Koeman's best chance of winning his maiden trophy at the Camp Nou. 


Barcelona will have to break a curse to win the Spanish Cup as the Catalan club have not won a final in Seville for 96 years. The last time Barcelona won a final in Seville was the Copa Del Rey way back in 1935. Ronald Koeman is expected to have his full squad apart from star kid Ansu Fati and 2nd choice Goalkeeper Norberto Neto. Barcelona have been in incredible form since the turn of the year having lost only 4 games in all competitions.

Athletico Bilbao on the other hand came to the game having lost the 2020 Copa Del Rey final that was postponed due to covid against Real Sociedad. Athletico Club defeated Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup final thanks to a last-minute equaliser by Villalibre and an extra-time winner by Inaki Williams. Marcelinho will be hoping to see a similar performance from his team in what would be a difficult and demanding night for Los Leones.
