Starting XI: Valencia v Barca

FC Barcelona will be looking to complete the league and cup double when they take on Valencia in the Copa del Rey final at Estadio Benito Vilamarin on Saturday evening - Here's how they line up.

Copa Del Rey Final

Teams: FC Barcelona v Valencia

Date: 25 May 2019

Venue: Benito Villamarín

The match gets underway at 21h00.
 
After a disappointing Champions League semi-final defeat to Liverpool in which they threw away a 3-0 first-leg lead, Barca will be desperate to make amends by claiming a domestic double.
 
Ernesto Valverde's side are looking for their fifth consecutive Copa del Rey title but will have to do without Luis Suarez and Andre Ter-Stegen, who are both injured. Meanwhile, Arthur and and Philppe Coutinho passed a late fitness test.
 
The teams' previous two meetings this season both ended in stalemates, with Barca coming back from two goals down to draw 2-2 in the last encounter.
 
The Catalan giants are the current champions after thrashing Sevilla 5-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano to take their tally to a record 30 titles.
 
Valencia, meanwhile, will be out to claim their eighth Copa del Rey crown, with their last triumph dating as far back 2008 when they defeated Getafe in the final.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Barcelona: Cillessen, Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba, Roberto, Rakitic, Busquets, Arthur, Coutinho, Messi.

Valencia: Jaume, Wass, Garay, Paulista, Gaya, Coler, Parejo, Coquelin, Guedes, Rodrigo, Gameiro.
