Follow all the action live as Barcelona look to seal a second successive domestic double against Valencia in the Copa del Rey final at the Benito Villamarin stadium in Seville.

The Catalans finished 11 points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid in La Liga but are still reeling from their shocking defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-final, while Valencia were knocked out of the Europa League by Arsenal in an embarrassing defeat at the Mestalla but have been buoyed by securing a top-four spot on the final day of the season with victory over Valladolid.

After Rodrigo spurned a precious early opportunity it looked as though Barca were set to take control of the match, however, Kevin ​Gameiro’s brilliant first touch and fine finish put Marcelino’s side ahead after 21 minutes and brought alive the very real prospect of an upset.
