As a result, the “El Clasico” against Real Madrid, which is considered the best rival on the ground in the final, was held for the second consecutive time.
Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid 5-3 the day before in extra time and made it to the final.
Barcelona, which lifted its first trophy at the tournament last year after its star Lionel Messi left and Xavi Hernandez took the helm, scored one goal each for Robert Lewandowski and 16-year-old rising star Ramine Yamal.
Barcelona not only won its second consecutive championship but also had a chance to avenge its loss in its first rival match this season. Real Madrid won 2-1 in the season’s first El Clasico held in Barcelona in October.
Barcelona, which won 3-1 in last year’s final, has recently been criticized for its below-expected performance in the league, which is expected to be of great help if it keeps the throne this time.
Barcelona is currently in third place, seven points behind the leader Real Madrid (44 points) after the 19th round of La Liga.
Barcelona have not been able to match their reputation this season.
According to the Associated Press, Barcelona has never won by more than one goal in 20 matches since beating Antwerp 5-0 in the group league in September last year. The only other match that won by more than two goals was the 2-0 defeat of Cardis in the league in August last year.
“We are improving,” Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong said after a two-goal victory in the first half. “The game against Madrid was always exciting. It will be a match between two teams of high quality. We will prepare.”
The final will be held at Alawal Stadium in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, on the 15th.
