Spanish Cup preview: Barcelona, Sevilla eye double

May 22, 2016, 08:30 IST | AFP

Madrid: Newly-crowned Spanish champions Barcelona face Sevilla, fresh from winning their third consecutive Europa League, as both seek more glory in the Spanish Cup final today.

Another successful campaign for both sides will end as it began after Barca edged Sevilla 5-4 after extra-time in a thrilling season-opening European Super Cup final.

Indeed, Barca could end the season with four trophies in total having also claimed the Club World Cup in December.

Barca captain Andres Iniesta laughed off suggestions that a La Liga and Cup double is the minimum requirement for the Catalan giants to ease the pain of their Champions League exit to Atletico Madrid at the quarter-final stage last month. “When you win a league it’s impossible for it to be a bad season. It will always be a good season,” he said.
