The Copa del Rey final between Real Sociedad and Sevilla has been postponed.

The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has announced that the Copa del Rey final has been put off for a later time due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Recently, La Liga followed in the footsteps of other top European Leagues and decided to prevent the fans from entering the stadium for at least the next two matchdays.

Sevilla vs Roma and Inter Milan vs Getafe also became the most recent continental fixtures to be affected by the virus.

Sevilla were set to play Athletic Club Bilbao in the final of La Copa on April 18th but the RFEF has postponed the match.

Although any official date is yet to be announced, reports in Spain suggest the Basque derby will be rescheduled for May 30.
