MADRID – It took Bruce Springsteen to end the controversy over the Copa del Rey final in Spain.
The rock star has announced he will be playing at the Santiago Bernabeu on May 21, ruling out Real Madrid's stadium for the Copa final between Barcelona and Sevilla.
Both finalists wanted to play at the venue, the country's biggest neutral ground, but Real Madrid was yet to make it available. The club apparently wanted to avoid the risk of seeing its biggest rival celebrating a title on its ground.
The game is expected to be played at Atletico Madrid's Vicente Calderon Stadium.
The final could be moved to May 22 if Sevilla reaches the final of the Europa League on May 18. The Bernabeu still wouldn't be available in that case.
