This is how the controversial Cristóbal Soria has been cheered by the FC Barcelona fans. The video is by Raúl Rioja:
Close the fan zone of Sevilla and the Seville club informs its team how to get to the stadium:
📣 You have just closed the fan zone. We recommend all Sevillans who are close to the place to go to @Metropolitano and go through the security perimeter. Access to said perimeter will be made by No. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. pic.twitter.com/i0nZ4UYVJV
– Sevilla Fútbol Club (@SevillaFC) April 21, 2018  17.44 h Contrast of flags near the stadium:
Our colleague Raúl Rioja reports from the Metropolitan Wanda: very few people still in the vicinity of the stadium.
In an hour they close the fan zones and the fans will have to leave them to go to the Metropolitan. The sevillistas will be placed in the north stand and the culés in the south.
Sevilla has relied on this final. If the victory is not achieved, with the Champions League now unreachable the Seville season would be quite gray.
In sports, it will be necessary to see if Barça has overcome the very strong blow of his elimination in Champions against Roma, against all odds and after falling by a resounding 3-0 in the Olympic Eternal City.
The safety device is proportional to the importance of the event: 3,200 troops make up, among police, civil guard, municipal and municipal of Coslada, SAMUR, Fire, Red Cross, Renfe, Madrid Metro, ADIF and EMT.
The referee of the final is Jesús Gil Manzano born on February 4, 1984 in Don Benito, Badajoz. It is the first final for this Extremadura, if we do not count the first leg of the Supercopa 2016 (precisely a Sevilla-Barcelona) nor that he was fourth referee in the 2016 Cup final, again between both teams and also at the Atleti stadium, In particular in the already disused Vicente Calderón.
For his part, Vincenzo Montella has the opportunity to follow the trail of winning technicians such as Juande Ramos or Unai Emery. Winning Sevilla, would also be the first title after the departure of the emblematic sports director Monchi.
Ernesto Valverde has the opportunity to settle an old debt with Sevilla. The Andalusian team took a UEFA penalty shoot-out when the coach from Cáceres coached Espanyol.
It is also planned to release yellow balloons in the 17.14 minute match, to protest the imprisonment of politicians who allegedly conspired to hold the illegal 1-O referendum. Sevillian fans of Barça intend to answer with red balloons
The preview of the game will be marked, among other matters, by the foreseeable national anthem by the fans of the FC Barcelona. We will see how the sevillista grandstand reacts.
In the fan zone of Barça, two ex-players like Albert Ferrer and Francisco Javier Sánchez Jara are playing host to the fans that begin to fill it.
For now, without incident and with good atmosphere in both fan zones.
The city of Madrid already welcomes both hobbies, which at 9:30 p.m. have time to go to the Atlético de Madrid stadium to watch the final.
For those of Montella, it would be the occasion to save a mediocre season in Liga (they are out of Champions), something made up for a more than worthy presence in the Champions League, where they were eliminated in the quarters.
For the FC Barcelona would be the first title of the desired double, since the Valverde team has the League really on track.
Barça players look for their cup number ro 30, while the Sevillians seek their sixth title.
FC Barcelona and Sevilla FC face in the brand new stadium Wanda Metropolitano de Madrid to settle the first title of the season ( except for the Supercopa of Spain.)
Good afternoon and welcome to the live narration of the preliminaries and the final of the Copa del Rey football
