MADRID (AP)

The Copa del Rey final between Barcelona and Real Madrid will be played at Valencia's Mestalla Stadium, three days earlier than originally scheduled.

The domestic cup final was originally scheduled for April 19 but has been moved to the 16th since there is a chance both clubs could have Champions League semifinals the following week.

Madrid beat Barcelona 1-0 after extra time the last time the pair met in the Copa del Rey final, also at Mestalla, three years ago. The Spanish giants have split their six appearances against each other in the cup final.

Each team will be allotted nearly 20,000 tickets for club members, with prices ranging from 45 euros to 240 euros ($60 to $330).
