Previous finals


This is the fifth final between these two clubs, the four previous matches dating back to the last five years and being consecutive between 2005–2008. This incredible list of repeated finals is increasing disputes around the actual competition formula, which gives an excessive advantage to the clubs participating in the European cups, who enter the cup in the round of 16 and play single matches at home.
