Of the 03 wanted trophies this season, Barcelona FC may only win one, which has the least value. The team was winning the King’s Cup in the previous two seasons, but together with the champion title, while, two seasons ago, it added the UEFA Champions League title to that and it was a dream season they wanted to repeat. In the UEFA Champions League Barcelona team could have been eliminated in the round of sixteen, but they celebrated over PSG, although they were immediately in the quarter-finals eliminated by Juventus team and they have not scored any goals in those two duels. They were second in La Liga all the time, and they were in the leading position only when Real Madrid team had one match less and that is why it must be said that they did not even deserve to defend the title.
Barcelona did everything in the finish of the championship and they won all their opponents, starting from El Clasico, however, Real Madrid did not make the wrong step and that is why the title went to Madrid. Barcelona team has won the Super Cup at the very beginning of the season and they can now come to this consolation trophy, although it is really questionable how much they would be consolidated by the victory over Deprortivo Alaves. For coach, Enrique, the good news is that players: Pique and Mascherano have recovered and will play in this duel, while L.Suarez and S.Roberto are both still out of action.
Deportivo Alaves has a great season and they only improve it by winning the trophy, which would considering their opponent in the finals be a great sensation. The team is aware of this from Basque, but that does not mean that they will surrender without a big fight, because it should not be forgetten that Deportivo Alaves is the only team that managed to defeat Barcelona team at Camp Nou this season. True, they did not score anything at their stadium, allthough that game did not mean anything at all, and Deportivo Alaves was already thinking about the Cup.
At the beginning of month February, Deportivo Alaves secured the final over Celta Vigo and since then their results were quite variable, although they were very good at the very end and it is clear that their form was timed for this match, which is the second most important match in the history of the club, after the famous UEFA Cup finals of 2001 when they lost to Liverpool with 5-4. The team has no trophies in their showcases and this is their second opportunity, but again there is a big obstacle ahead of them and they will have to play a great game. They have achieved 04 wins and 03 draws in the finish of La Liga, while they were at the beginning of April defeated last time by Espanyol team. Coach, Pellegrino, has no major problems with absenteeism and only center-back Laguardia is out of action.
