Copa del Rey – Final 2016/17 : FC Barcelona vs Alaves – Preview

Barcelona and Deportivo Alaves will have the honour to play the last match at Estadio Vicente Calderon.

Atletico Madrid’s home will be replaced with the new stadium after Copa del Rey final this Saturday.


There is no need to underline how huge of favourites Barcelona will be against Deportivo Alaves in the last official match of the season in Spain.

This will also be the last match for Luis Enrique on Barca’s bench. The Catalans have the imperative to confirm the role of favourites and save the season (at least some part) with the only trophy they have left to play for.

Deportivo Alaves

Mauricio Pellegrino can be more than proud on the achievements he has made with Deportivo Alaves in this season of both Primera Division and Copa del Rey.

The nominal visitors ended the league campaign in the top half of the standings and they reached the cup final.

Alaves’ main characteristics is a rock-solid defense, but it will probably have the toughest possible challenge to stop the MSN trio in Barca’s final third.

Barcelona vs Alaves: Head to head

Alaves came out with a shocking upset at the very start of the season when they pulled out a 1-2 win at Camp Nou.

Barcelona did not forget this failure as they were clearly motivated to get the revenge at Estadio de Mendizorroza where Blaugrana notched as many as six goals in the drubbing of Alaves back in mid-February.
