Tip Barcelona - Valencia
Barcelona have already won La Liga and go for the league and cup double when facing Valencia in the final of the Copa del Rey. They have won the trophy for the past four seasons and a win here will make them the first club to ever win the Copa del Rey five times in a row. Barcelona come into this game having won only one of their last four games. The first of those saw them field a reserve side and lose 2-0 at Celta Vigo and was followed by that unforgettable (well forgettable if you support Barca) night at Anfield. Their only win was a 2-0 home defeat of Getafe and they ended their league season with a 2-2 draw at Eibar with two more goals for Lionel Messi. Notable wins for Barcelona on their way to this final were against Real Madrid and Sevilla.
They have won this trophy on the previous occasions (compared to 30 victories for their opponents) with their last win in 2008. It's been a good week for them for the Champions League with a win at Real Valladolid. They almost missed out on the semi-final Europa League to Arsenal. Winning their last three league games did the job and they are back on top form now. To get this far, they have gotten away from Getafe and Real Betis. They were knocked out of this competition last year by Barcelona so will fancy some revenge here. A bet on over 2.5 goals in what should be an exciting final is the suggested bet.
Key points Barcelona - Valencia
Four of the last five Valencia games have had over 2.5 goals scored in them.
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in four of the last six Valencia games played in this competition.
Five of the last seven Barcelona games in the Copa del Rey have had over 2.5 goals scored in them.
Conclusion Barcelona - Valencia
It's been a good season for both of these clubs, though they wish next week was seeing them play in European finals. Barcelona bid for the league and cup double and take on a Valencia side that had to win their last three league games to confirm their Champions League place for next season. This should be an exciting game between two high-scoring teams and the suggested bet is over 2.5 goals in the match.
