Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Ander ter Stegen has been ruled out of the Copa del Rey final due to a knee problem.

The Germany international missed the final three LaLiga games of the season while undergoing treatment for an issue in his right knee.

The club confirmed on Wednesday that Ter Stegen “still has discomfort” and is therefore unavailable for the match with Valencia at the Benito Villamarin on Saturday.

It means Jasper Cillessen is likely to start, despite reports suggesting he has agreed to leave the club to join Benfica in the coming transfer window.

Ter Stegen has played in 49 of Barca’s matches this season, including both legs of the Copa semi-final victory over Real Madrid.

Cillessen had featured in all previous rounds of the competition in 2018-19, conceding just three goals in ties with Cultural Leonesa, Levante and Sevilla.

LaLiga champions Barca are seeking their third trophy of the season, having also won the Supercopa de Espana.

Valencia, meanwhile, have not won any silverware since a 3-1 victory over Getafe in the Copa final of 2008.
