LaLiga leaders Barcelona take on Sevilla at the Wanda Metropolitano aiming to clinch a fourth consecutive Copa del Rey triumph.

Philippe Coutinho keeps his place for Barcelona in tonight's Copa del Rey final, while Jasper Cillessen starts in goal in a line-up that is as expected.

Coutinho the only player to keep place from Celta draw

Coutinho is the only survivor from Tuesday's LaLiga draw at Celta Vigo, in which Barça coach Ernesto Valverde opted to leave out a raft of regulars ahead of this evening's clash with Sevilla (21:30 CEST).

Cillessen, who is Marc-André ter Stegen's understudy in LaLiga and the Champions League, is the Blaugrana's number one in the Copa del Rey.

Muriel starts up front for Sevilla

Striker Luis Muriel gets the nod ahead of Wissam Ben Yedder for Sevilla, who also welcome back a host of first-choice players who were rested in midweek.
