Barcelona vs Alaves
Copa del Rey – Final 2016/17
Date: Saturday, 27th May 2017
Kick off at 20:30 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Vicente Calderon.

Barcelona and Deportivo Alaves will have the honour to play the last match at Estadio Vicente Calderon.


Luis Enrique takes charge of Barcelona for one final time on Saturday evening, as his side face rank outsiders Alaves in the Copa del Rey final at the Vicente Calderon.

The 47-year-old enjoyed much success in his first two campaigns at the helm but is now relying on this weekend's showpiece to salvage his final term, having failed in both the Champions League and La Liga.

Barcelona

There is no need to underline how huge of favourites Barcelona will be against Deportivo Alaves in the last official match of the season in Spain.

This will also be the last match for Luis Enrique on Barca’s bench. The Catalans have the imperative to confirm the role of favourites and save the season (at least some part) with the only trophy they have left to play for.

Barcelona possible starting lineup:
Ter Stegen; Mascherano, Pique, Umtiti, Alba; Iniesta, Busquets, Rakitic; Messi, Alcacer, Neymar

Deportivo Alaves

Mauricio Pellegrino can be more than proud on the achievements he has made with Deportivo Alaves in this season of both Primera Division and Copa del Rey.

The nominal visitors ended the league campaign in the top half of the standings and they reached the cup final.

Alaves’ main characteristics is a rock-solid defense, but it will probably have the toughest possible challenge to stop the MSN trio in Barca’s final third.

Europa League final: Ajax v Manchester United
Venue: Friends Arena, Stockholm Date: 24 May, 19:45 BST
 
The Friends Arena in Stockholm will host the 2017 Europa League final on May 24, with 20-time English champions Manchester United taking on Dutch giants Ajax in what promises to be a fascinating clash in Sweden.

As well as European silverware being on offer, the winner of the final will gain an automatic spot in the group stage of the 2017-18 Champions League.

The Europa League final will be played 22 years to the day since Ajax claimed their last European trophy – overcoming AC Milan in the 1995 Champions League final. The Dutch giants also reached the final of the 1996 Champions League, but lost on penalties to Juventus.

It would be fair to say that the Europa League was an inconvenience for Man United and head coach Jose Mourinho earlier this season, but the competition has become imperative as the club look to return to the Champions League.

Ajax possible starting lineup:
Onana; Tete, De Ligt, Sanchez, Veltman; Klaassen, Schone, Ziyech; Traore, Dolberg, Younes

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Romero; Valencia, Blind, Jones, Darmian; Herrera, Fellaini, Pogba; Lingard, Rashford, Mkhitaryan
