Los Merengues face the team from Pamplona with both teams having legit options of claiming the title. Follow their match with this guide.

The time has come to know the identity of the Copa del Rey champions, a title that will be determined between Real Madrid and Osasuna. History may tell you that Los Merengues are the massive favorites to win the title, but Osasuna's recent for may be enough reason to give them some options to take the crown home.

Los Merengues have not enjoyed the best of season in La Liga, where they surrendered the title to Barcelona with a string of poor performances. Right now, Los Merengues are ranked third in the domestic competition behind the Blaugrana club and Atlético Madrid, who have a one-point lead against them in the local league. Real Madrid have lost their last two away games when it comes to La Liga matches, which means that they have only felt comfortable at the Bernabeu in recent weeks.

On the other side of the pitch, Osasuna will also enter this match with a couple of losses in a row, the first one against Real Sociedad and the most recent against Barcelona. Los Rojillos are ranked tenth in La Liga right now, which means that only a catastrophic end of the season would see them being relegated. All in all, this has been a superb season for Jagoba Arrasate's men, who are still in contention for a spot in European tournaments, something that could be accomplished if they finish sixth, or if they can find a way to beat Los Blancos.

Real Madrid and Osasuna are no strangers to playing Copa del Rey Finals, but Los Blancos have quite a bit more experience than their rivals in that department. The Spanish capital giants have been involved in 39 cup finals, winning 19 of those. This is their first title clash in the Copa del Rey since the 2013-14 season, a game they ended winning 2-1 against Barcelona with Carlo Ancelotti at the helm.

On the other hand, Osasuna have only been able to play a title match in this competition. That Copa del Rey final was played between Los Rojillos and Real Betis, but unfortunately for the team from Pamplona, they were beaten 2-1 by Los Verdiblancos.
