Barca have lost out of all major title this season, winning the Copa Del Ray will be a sorting balm to their elbow, and also their numerous fans across the globe.

It should also be noted that Barca battled for the Spanish La Liga title to the last day losing it to the current champion Real Madrid.
Gerard Pique wants his boss to go out as a winner in the last ever competitive game at Atletico Madrid’s Vicente Calderon stadium.
“He is one of the best coaches in the history of the club,” said the defender.
“He deserves a great final. The best way to leave would be on a high with a trophy and tomorrow is a good opportunity.
“I want him to leave as a winner,” he had said.
Barca coach, Luis Enrique has warned his wards to be careful of Alaves, reminding them that the same Alaves beat them at Camp Nou during the league title chase.
“I have the chance to end my cycle with Barca with another title, but we are facing without doubt the revelation of La Liga this season.”
Alaves Coach Mauricio Pellegrino is grateful of his boys;
“I am very thankful to these boys for the work they have put in,” said Pellegrino.
Although Alaves will not go down without a fight, the captain of the team Manu Garcia has urged his club fans to cheer the team to victory, reminding them of their exploits 16years ago, when the team reached UEFA cup final in the year 2001.
“This is a historic event,” he said. “It is a final and we only want to be champions.
“I want to tell the fans to enjoy the day as much as possible.
“As a youngster I experienced Dortmund, I have a lot of memories of that day and I want the fans to go there with their shirts, flags and scarves and be proud of Alaves.”
Alaves’ quest to make history will be helped by the absence of the suspended Luis Suarez.
