- Marcelino laid out his side for Saturday's showpiece
Dani Parejo has made suggestions that Barcelona will not be fully motivated for the Copa del Rey final on Saturday with Valencia in the hope of stopping the champions from securing the double home position.
Parejo and his teammates in Valencia were hit hard on Friday and presented their final preparations for the showpiece of Seville in the Benito Villamarin.
While Barcelona gets the Spanish league title, there were talks that still worries the Catalan side of their humiliating defeat to Liverpool in the semi-final of the Champions League, but Parejo believes Barca has left that behind.

& # 39; The day of the Liverpool (defeat) was difficult for them, after last year in Rome, & # 39; said Parejo at the pre-match press conference in Valencia.
& # 39; The time has passed (since then). They can secure the double (by winning on Saturday) and I think that reason is more than enough to be motivated and go out to win the competition. The final is more than equal. & # 39;
After Liverpool's stunning win over the Catalan giants, it was suggested that Valencia adopt similar tactics, but Parejo is determined to stick to what they know.

The Valencia group was enthusiastic during the training on Friday afternoon
& # 39; Our way of playing and playing has been clear in the past two years (under Marcelino), & # 39; he added.
& # 39; We have a way of playing that has been good for us to this day. The challenge for us is not to care about what it means to win this game, but to play every moment that seeks to strengthen our weapons while reducing them.
& # 39; We must not attach any importance to the consequences of this victory (during the match). & # 39;
