Both clubs announced the venue after agreeing on it at the Spanish Football Federation on Monday.

The finalists originally wanted to play at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, the country’s biggest neutral ground, but Real Madrid announced it was not available because it had been hired out for a Bruce Springsteen concert.

Although Madrid kept quiet about the arrangement, many believe it wanted to avoid the risk of seeing its biggest rival celebrating a title win on its ground.

Barca maintained their push for trophies on all fronts with an 8-1 aggregate victory over Valencia in the semi-finals, while Sevilla overcame Celta Vigo 6-2 on aggregate.

Luis Enrique’s side are aiming to win the trophy for a record 28th time in their bid to repeat their treble-winning feat last season in claiming the Champions League, La Liga and the Cup.

Sevilla last won the Copa del Rey in 2010, but were the last team to beat Barca back in October.

    If Athletic Bilbao could park a bus and keep Barcelona’s three-headed monster at bay, they’d bring home the trophy. Otherwise, the odds seem to be favoring the Blaugrana.

      There hope I think Raymond is that between now and the end of the season that Barca’s three-headed monster as you put it, revert back to the form they had in the first half of the season or that Barca reach the Champions League final and lose focus on the cup.

    If the first match between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid was to be a sign for their upcoming match, I’d say that Barca has pretty much figured out Atletico. Not to mention that the team has been steamrolling over opponents in the past few weeks.

    My bet is with the Blaugrana this time.

      The challenge I see Atletico having Raymond is that they have really struggled to score against Barca and I cannot see them scoring twice next week.

    Barca was the best and still the best. Second league will going to be 3-0 in favur of Barcelona.
