Barca ‘deserve’ Copa title – Alba

Jordi Alba believes Barcelona ‘deserve’ to win the Copa del Rey this season ahead of their final against Alaves on Saturday.

The 28-year-old full-back mentioned the difficult run Luis Enrique’s side encountered on their way to the showpiece, although did warn against the strengths of Alaves.

"Barcelona deserve to win this Copa del Rey," Alba is quoted as saying by Marca.

"It has been a difficult Copa run with difficult opponents, and it has been very tough.

"We had to comeback against Athletic Bilbao, Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid ties were beautiful and challenging.

"Alaves have had a very good season – few teams ever achieve points against us at the Camp Nou but they did by performing extremely strong.”
