Barcelona are unchanged and full-strength for tonight’s Copa del Rey final against Sevilla, who look to follow up their Europa League exploits of three days ago.
With no injuries or suspensions to contend with following the returns of Claudio Bravo and Sandro Ramirez, Luis Enrique is free to name his first-choice XI, starting with Marc-Andre ter Stegen between the sticks.
Dani Alves and Jordi Alba are in the full-back positions, with Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano in central defence, while Sergio Busquets anchors Ivan Rakitic – against his former club – and Andres Iniesta.
Up top, the ‘MSN’ attacking trident of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar – branded “beastly” by Vitolo before the match – spearhead the Catalans’ efforts.
Sevilla, meanwhile, make two changes from the 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the Europa League final as David Soria and Steven N’Zonzi make way for Sergio Rico and Vicente Iborra.
