COPA DEL REY FINAL: FC BARCELONA V FC SEVILLA TICKETS
Great Copa del Rey Final Barcelona v Sevilla tickets still available.
The 2016 Copa del Rey Final between Barcelona and Sevilla will be held at Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid’s home ground, Vicente Calderon, on May 22, 2016. The amazing Calderon is considered one of the top stadiums in Europe.
Barcelona are the defending Copa del Rey champions after defeating Athletic Bilbao.
There was much controversy about where the match would be played, although the Spanish capital city of Madrid was selected as the ideal location due to its location approximately equidistant between Sevilla and Barcelona.
Both Sevilla and Barca wanted to play at Santiago Bernabeu, home of Real Madrid, but a Bruce Springsteen concert was already scheduled by Los Blancos.
Pep Guardiola managed his final match for Barcelona, a Copa del Rey Final against Athletic Bilbao, with a win for the Catalan giants at the last Copa del Rey final match to be played at Vicente Calderon in 2012, when three goals in the first 25 minutes - two from Pedro and one from Lionel Messi - saw Barca defeat Athletic Bilbao 3-0 to send Pep off in style.
The fight to the finish for the Spanish La Liga title is close between the top three sides. FC Barcelona is in first place with 88 points; Real Madrid is in second with 87 points; Atletico Madrid is in third with 85 points and Villarreal are in fourth with 64 points going into the final games of the 2015 – 2016 season.
Barcelona may win both the Spanish Primera League and Copa del Rey, since they are the 'best team in the world', according to Barca striker Luis Suarez. Uruguay international Suarez believes that their strong team ethic should see them win a second successive La Liga title. Barca, a point ahead of Real in the standings, travel to Granada in Andalucia on Saturday while Real Madrid are away at Deportivo.

Suarez who has scored 56 goals for Barca this season, believes a clean sheet against Granada is the top priority.
"It's key to keep a clean sheet, we know that we have what it takes in attack," said Suarez. "We can win the two titles or lose them. We are the best team in the world, and we know the pressure that comes with it, but we depend on ourselves. Granada will want to win for their own pride. With the goals and assists, if we win the league they have assisted that, but the collective attitude is part of that too,” continued Suarez. "We are aware that the fate is in our hands. We have enough time to win the game. We know there will be difficult moments, as that always happens at this stage of the league."
The former Liverpool star says his team-mates' trust in him has increased this season.
"Most of my teammates, like Messi or Neymar, have been looking to pick me out more, without me telling them, to give me options to score. It shows our team ethic,” added Suarez. "It is an honor to play at Barcelona with these players around me. On the field and off it they have been really important. This season we have shown we are great team-mates."
