The original inaugural competition of Copa! featured teams from Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, RCD Espanyol and Athletic Bilbao. In a throwback, to those times, this year’s final pits two of the founding teams, Barcelona versus Athletic Bilbao.
No one would be able to deny the fact that Athletic Bilbao has had a breakout season under Marcelo Biesla with runners up place in the Europa League. Winning the Copa would be the perfect icing on the cake for a stellar year. Taking a team with limited resources to the finals of the Europa League and then to the Copa is no mean feat when footballing giants like Madrid have fallen by the wayside. However, Bilbao will have its work cut out when it faces one of the best sides, not only in Spain but, according to a majority of pundits, in the world.
By their own lofty standards set over the last 4 seasons, Barcelona has not had a very good year. They lost to Chelsea in the Champion Leagues semi final. And to make matters worse, they lost the Spanish La Liga title to their most bitter rivals Real Madrid after three year domination. After so many dominant seasons in which they won practically every competition they entered, Barcelona have no silverware for this year. Moreover, it is not the barren stretch which worries Barcelona. In fact it is the loss of their coach who brought the remarkable turnaround, Joseph Guardiola, who is set to leave at the end of this season. The former Barcelona midfield legend will be instructing plays by the sidelines for the last time as a Barcelona coach in the Copa final. His players will be more than determined to send their coach off on a winning note. And they would strive to add to their 13 trophies won so far under Guardiola’s four year stint.
Do not miss this historic moment and buy the Copa! tickets now. Also on display will be the best player on the planet, as Lionel Messi aims to add to his record breaking tally of goals in a single year. Be there to witness the miracle that this young fleet footed Argentine brings to the field. Traditionally, the Copa has been kind to Barca with the Catalan team winning it the most number of times at 25, followed by Madrid at 18. Be there to find out if Barca makes it number 26. Seats are running out, so avail this opportunity to witness the historic occasion and see the beautiful game played by some of the most gifted player of this generation. No matter which team or player you idealise, if you love football, you need to be there. Buy your Copa! tickets today.
