Barcelona wanted to change the date of the Copa del Rey final (April 21), because the Champions League semi-final first leg takes place on April 25 and they might be in it.
However due to a crowded calendar it was not possible, explained Guillermo Amor on Monday, the club's director of instituitonal relations.
"For us it's fine, after we tried to do a few things, some difficult and impossible, we think the date was difficult to change. It was not possible for a question of the calendar, a huge amount of games, a lot of competitions. We're in all of them and hope to continue until the end. If you play on all those dates it's a good sign," said Amor.
He also confirmed Barcelona did not ask for the game to be played at the Santiago Bernabeu.
