Barcelona’s bid for domestic dominance could be completed on Saturday but first, they will have to overcome a plucky Valencia side seeking their first piece of silverware since winning this very competition in 2008.
So, how did both sides
The route to the final
Barcelona 5 cultural y deportiva leonesa 1 – (all results given as aggregate totals)
The Spanish giants were paired with Segunda B division side cultural y deportiva leonesa for their opening exploits in the competition.
Ernesto Valverde’s side breezed through two-legged affair 5-1 on aggregate to get their defence of to the easiest of starts.
Barcelona 4 Levante 2
However, the Catalans ran into a dogged Levante in the second round of matches.

Barcelona 6 Sevilla 3
Barcalona then took on Sevilla in the quarter finals and were once again under pressure as the Sevillistas sent Messi and co packing back home with a two-goal deficit to make up.
Trailing 2-0 from the first leg, Barca knew they had to turn on the style and that is exactly what they did.
Four second half goals to go with two in the opening 45 minutes was exquisite and dumped Sevilla out of the competition 6-3 on aggregate.
Barcelona 4 Real Madrid 1
Then it was the big one.
Real Madrid over two legs looked like a tall order but actually proved one of the easier Copa Del Rey tasks for Barca despite drawing 1-1 at home with their great rivals.
At the Bernabeu, many made Real favourites, but the Blancos had no answer as a Suarez double sent the visitors to the final in a 3-0 win.
Valencia 3 Ebro 1
No one gave minnows Ebro much of a hope against the Bats.
However, the lowly Segunda B group three side shocked everyone when Jonan Amelibia put them ahead in the 62nd minute.
It was to be shot lived though as Santi Mina struck a double to give Valencia a 2-1 advantage heading into the second leg.
Batshuayi struck the only goal of the game back at the Mestalla sending Valencia through 3-1 on aggregate.
Valencia 4 Sporting Gijon 2
Sporting Gijon were up next in a game Valencia were supposed to run riot in.
However, a weakened side by Marcelino saw the home side run out 2-1 surprise winners.
A three-nil home win soon restored the parity between the two clubs with Valencia making to the last eight 4-2 on aggregate.
Valencia 4 Getafe 2
An almost identical scenario played out in the last eight for Valencia as the previous round.
A 1-0 loss away was then backed up with a comfortable 3-1 home win to set up a tie in the semi-finals with Real Betis.
Valencia 3 Real Betis 2
Real Betis’ Benito Villamarín Stadium is the host venue for the final so understandably, the Betico’s were eager to progress.
A 2-2 draw in Betis set the return leg up beautifully but a single Rodrigo strike at the Mestalla was enough to dash Betis hearts and send the Bats to the final.
