The Valencian stadium becomes the second most used venue for the final. 
Real Madrid will battle it out for the cup in the Mestalla for the sixth time in its history. It is now a well-known arena for the Whites and the second most used stadium for the final of the competition. The first is the Santiago Bernabéu, having played host to nine finals. Until now, the Mestalla was level with Montjuïc with five finals each.

Real Madrid has lifted the cup three times in the stadium in Valencia. The first came in 1936, when they beat Barcelona 2-1 with goals from Eugenio and Lecue. Interestingly, the last two Copa del Reys in the Whites' trophy room were won in the Mestalla; in 1993 with a 2-0 win over Zaragoza, and in 2011 against Barcelona thanks to an unforgettable goal from Cristiano Ronaldo. The other two finals played at the venue were in 1929 and 1990.
