It’ll be Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final on May 30.

The two clubs have won more Copa del Rey tournaments than any other in Spanish history. Barcelona leads all clubs with 26 wins, while Bilbao has 23.

Both have played in 36 finals, second-most to Real Madrid’s 39.

Barcelona got there by posting a pair of 3-1 wins over Villarreal. That includes Wednesday’s match, which included this pair of goals from Neymar.

Barca also knocked off Atletico Madrid, Elche and Huesca in two-legged ties by a combined score of 25-3.

Bilbao finished off Espanyol 2-0 on Wednesday to stop any hopes of an all-Barcelona final. Malaga, Celta Vigo and Alcoyano were the club’s other victims.
