Clement Lenglet has been talking about Saturday’s Copa del Rey final against Valencia and says that Barcelona are aiming to win in order to finish the season on a high.

Ernesto Valverde’s side will be hoping to do the double for a second year running by beating Valencia, and Lenglet is keen for the team put aside their Champions League disappointment.

“It’s not easy to reach the final of any competition. We suffered a lot along the way but now we can win another title and we’ll do everything we can to make sure we do,” he said.

“These are not easy times either for the FC Barcelona players or fans after getting knocked out of the Champions League.

“We’re hoping to get our game back in time for such an important match. It’s the last game of the season and we want to go off on our holidays on a high.”

Lenglet was part of the Sevilla team thrashed 5-0 by Barcelona last season, but he will be hoping he can be on the winning side this season and win the Copa del Rey for the first time in his career.
