Madrid want Mestalla cup final

Real Madrid want the Copa del Rey final to be played at Valencia's Mestalla, according to Sportyou.

Los Blancos were keen on the game being played at Barcelona's Camp Nou, but that request has been withdrawn as the Blaugrana will play Real Valladolid on the weekend of May 18-19 – the ideal date for the cup final.

Los Che however, will be away at Getafe that weekend, meaning their home ground will be available.

Madrid would like the game to be in a neutral city, but their opponents, Atletico Madrid, want the game to be played in the capital – at either Santiago Bernabeu or Vicente Calderon.
