Tournament: Championship of Spain. Final.
On Saturday evening on the 25th of May on Estadio Benito Villamarín in Seville will be held the final match of the Copa del Rey between Barcelona and Valencia.
Barcelona this season didn’t seem to be strong and it surely wasn’t stronger than all other teams. Two clubs: Real Madrid and Atl. Madrid didn’t seem to be the teams that were able this season to fight for the high places, especially this is true about Real Madrid. Nevertheless, Barca has managed to become the champions having lost only three defeats for the whole championship.
It should be mentioned, that in matches with serious football clubs, especially when they were lucky to lead in score, the Catalans were playing it safe being in defense mostly. This has caused them problems in the Champions League.
Valencia, having started indifferently the season, was taking the middle of the table for the long time. By the end of the season it has gained fair speed anf has managed to catch its rivals and to pass the opponents (Sevilla and Getafe), having got into the Champions League ans stopped in one step from the final of the Europa League where in semifinal they have lost to Arsenal.
The Bats have some chances to gain the trophy. Barcelona after beconing the champion is spending practice matches for several last rounds. Barcelona alters wins and defeats. The football club has lost to Celta, won over Getafe and tied with Eibar.
It is not always possible to return into the competitive mode easily. Valencia will be extremely motivated. Valencia doesn’t win a lot of matches and any trophy for them is a real success. It would be very symbolic to win anything when anniversary of the club is being celebrated this year.
In addition, Valencia was fighting for the 4th line till the last round and this also will become additional factor in their favor.
