Ernesto Valverde says Barcelona can remove some sting from their Champions League quarterfinal exit by winning a fourth straight Copa del Rey.
Sevilla's Gabriel Mercado joked ahead of the Copa del Rey final: "If I smack Lionel Messi, I will not be able to return to Argentina."
Ernesto Valverde has not been up for rotating his Barcelona squad this season and it has cost him in some matches. Does he trust his fringe stars?
Barcelona told Javier Tebas to focus on his own work after he said the Copa del Rey final should be abandoned if fans jeer the national anthem.
