BARCELONA, Spain - Barcelona can cap four illustrious years under Pep Guardiola with a 14th trophy when it plays Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final.

Friday's match at the Vicente Calderon stadium will be Guardiola's last in charge of the team, ending an unprecedented period of success for Barcelona since the former player took charge in 2008.

Guardiola will be looking to finish the way he started, as a cup victory over Athletic provided the first prize of his trophy cabinet.

Athletic coach Marcelo Bielsa's future is uncertain as the Basque club looks to bounce back from its Europa League final loss to avoid finishing the season without silverware.
