FC Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has confirmed his squad for the Copa del Rey final against Valencia CF this weekend.
The Catalan side are chasing a record breaking fifth consecutive successive win in the competition, although the former Athletic Bilbao boss has been hit by injuries to key players ahead of the game at the Mestalla.
Marc Ter Stegen, Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele, Rafinha, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Arthur Melo, Nelson Semedo and Philippe Coutinho have all been ruled out through injury – although the last three have been given special permission to be added to the squad if their situation improves.
