Lenglet is hoping Barca exorcise the demons of Anfield

Clement Lenglet has expressed his desire to win the trophy and heal the open wounds following their elimination in the Champions League at the hands of Liverpool.


Barcelona face Valencia in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday knowing that a win would complete the second successive double under Valverde.

However, the total collapse at Anfield where they lost 4-0 to lose a three-goal lead still remains the lowest point of their season.

Speaking ahead of the game, Lenglet disclosed the ambition was to sign off with another trophy but highlighted the threat posed by Valencia, especially via counter-attacks.

“We [Barcelona] want to go holiday feeling better than we have been after Anfield,” Lenglet said via Marca.

“We have to be very careful with Valencia because they are a very dangerous team.

Top 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia

Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.

“They counter-attack very well, they have players of great quality and especially one in the midfield that gives great passes.”

Lenglet was on the losing side in last season’s Copa del Rey final as a Sevilla player as they were pummelled 5-0 by Ernesto Valverde’s Barcelona side.
