BARCELONA can move another step closer to just the second treble in the club’s storied 115-year history when they host Athletic Bilbao at the Camp Nou in the Copa del Rey final today.

It is the third meeting between the two sides in the final in the past seven years with Barca emerging victorious on their way to their first treble in 2009 and in Pep Guardiola’s final match as Barca coach in 2012.

Today will also see the Camp Nou say goodbye to another club legend as Xavi Hernandez plays his final game on home soil before his farewell in the Champions League final against Juventus on June 6.

“We are very proud to have won La Liga and now comes the Cup final, which although it seems like a minor trophy, matters just as much to us as the Champions League final,” said Barca defender Gerard Pique.

“It is another title in the club’s museum and here at Barca we only know how to win.”

Pique’s return to his best form over the past six months has been key to Barca’s run of 29 wins in 33 games that has left them on the brink of glory in all competitions this season.
