Barcelona will take on Athletic in the final of the 2020-21 Copa del Rey.

The game is scheduled for April 17 at the Estadio de La Cartuja in Seville and, for Barcelona, comes between La Liga games against Real Madrid and Getafe.

Barca booked their place in the final with a dramatic 3-2 aggregate win over Sevilla on Wednesday at the Camp Nou. The Catalan giants came back from 2-0 down after the first leg to win 3-0 on the night at the Camp Nou after extra-time.

The second semi-final was also a tight affair with Athletic and Levante level at 1-1 after the first leg at San Mames. Another 1-1 draw at the Estadi Ciutat de València saw the game go into extra-time and Alex Berenguer pop up with the winner.

The result means Athletic will play two Copa del Rey finals in two weeks in April. The Basque side first have to play Real Sociedad on April 4 in last season’s final that has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
