Barcelona vs Valencia News & Current Form

Route to the 2019 Spanish Cup Final: How did they get here?

Speaking solely of their paths in this season's Copa del Rey edition, Barca have not had it plain sailing starting from their second tie into the competition - Levante in the last 16 - after they had just sent Leonesa out, Blaugrana lost the first leg 2-1 away to The Frogs. However, a week later when things moved to Camp Nou, Barca showed trademark composure to hit three and go through with an aggregate 4-2 win.

Meanwhile, Valencia were seemingly following the same plot at the very same stage, losing the first leg of their tie against Segunda Division's Dijon 1-2 on the road before following on with 3 home goals to progress into the quarter-finals. They had previously beaten Ebro 3-1 over their two meetings.

It was not long until Barca found themselves trailing again after the first match of their next face-off. Frequent final rivals Sevilla beat Ernesto Valverde's outfit with two second-half accurate strikes that established a solid handicap ahead of the return leg at the bitterly unfortunate Camp Nou to many. Fascinatingly, Valencia slipped at Getafe 0-1 the day before.

At that time, this final was unlikely meant to happen, even either of them was unsure of progress then, but the planets aligned for them and both produced a spectacular performance seeing Barcelona rack up 6 home goals (6-1 at Camp Nou and 6-3 on agg.) and Valencia twice as fewer - 3-0 at Mestalla to win 3-1 in total.

They have not lost ever since after Blaugrana managed to eliminate their biggest competitor in the form of Real Madrid (a 4-1 two-legged victory) and the Bats struggled but stood and won 3-2 to discourage Betis of the other final place left vacant.

And here they go - in a game that is the last of the season in Spain and should see both sides' efforts and improvements combined over the past year, as we know what seasons at home and in Europe they had.

In what state are Barcelona and Valencia approaching this showcase of a game?

Despite winning just two of their past five duels, including the sensational semi-final of the Champions League against Liverpool, the Catalan club felt not much motivated to keep up the rhythm they had been setting all season and finished the league with a score draw to Eibar - with Messi twice on target - followed by one win and one loss with the identical scoreline of 2-0.

Valencia, on one hand, were also hugely frustrated in their respective semi-final battle against Arsenal in the Europa League (7-3 on aggregate), but showed character to earn three back-to-back victories in La Liga during the turbulent period and remained 4th with the right to play Champions League football next year.

What do we make of Saturday's Final at Benito Villamarín?

Seven-time Copa del Rey winners Valencia are, all factors considered, not Barca's level in many respects; however, they have played impressively for the season long and it would be unfair to give them fewer chances they actually deserve for this game. What's more, Marcelino's team are one of only the two sides Blaugrana failed to beat neither at home nor away along with Villarreal.

Bats strikers Rodrigo and Santi Mina will be particularly eager to add more goals to their names as they have joint-4 goals in the cup's scoring charts and only one away from topping it.

Another draw on the cards? They have already given us two in this closing season. If not, whoever wins the title, they are unlikely going to avoid both teams scoring in a final that should make all spectators happy as the season shuts its doors.
