The season finale has arrived for Barcelona, as the Blaugrana look to close a successful campaign with a second trophy in two weeks, on Sunday against Sevilla at Vicente Calderón with the Copa del Rey trophy on the line.

After winning La Liga last weekend, Barça trained for the last four days with the Cup decider in mind. Coach Luis Enrique certainly utilized the week to prepare his men for the challenge of the Rojiblancos, and he was definitely happy to see that his team is healthy.

Only one player is certainly not fit to play in Madrid: striker Sandro Ramírez has been out for the last two months because of a hamstring injury, and will not get a chance to be in uniform for what is likely to be his last game as a Barça player.

Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is the only one listed as doubtful for the final against Sevilla. The Chilean suffered a calf injury three weeks ago, and is yet to be medically cleared. Even if he gets the green light to be in uniform on Sunday, he is certain not to play. Marc-André ter Stegen is the Cup keeper, and used the last two weeks with Bravo on the sidelines to prepare for Sevilla in the final two La Liga games of the campaign.

All other starters are completely healthy, and had a great week to rest and practice. The best team in the world is back, and will play the season finale with all big guns ready to fire.
