Nadal favored in all-Spanish final at Barcelona Open

Rafael Nadal finds himself in the final of another tournament on clay.

The "King of Clay" will face fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro in the final of the Barcelona ATP 500 tournament Sunday.

Nadal defeated Canadian Milos Raonic 6-4, 6-0 in his semifinal match on Saturday. Almagro, the No. 4 seed in the tournament, advanced to the final after his 6-2, 6-1 victory over Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber. Almagro aced the German nine times en route to the victory.

Nadal will be playing for his third straight championship in the tournament and his eighth in nine years. It will be the first time Almagro has been in the final.

Nadal is 8-0 lifetime versus Almagro, including six wins on clay courts.

Bet365 has Nadal as a big -1400 favorite.
