PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The rest of the Spanish Cup’s quarterfinalists will be announced tonight. Three pairs of teams will enter on the ground to fight for the next round. After a 1:1 draw at Balaidos in the first leg of the Copa del Rey last 16, Barça is back at Camp Nou this Thursday and looking to go through to the quarterfinals. Will the hosts make a decisive step to keep their title?

Barcelona are the defending winner of Copa del Rey. Last year they beat Alaves in the final match. This year Blaugranes have crushed Murcia in two-leg format with a total score 8:0.

Probably, the Royal Club cannot keep the champion’s title. Barcelona’s time comes. Ernesto Valverde’s team leads the Spanish Primera with nine points of advantage over the nearest pursuer Atletico Madid. They are undefeated within all season. Catalans won 15 games and drawn just three times. Including 2:2 against Celta a month ago. They are the best in terms of goals for and against. They have conceded seven goals after 18 fixtures.

Celta have never won the league title nor Copa del Rey, although they have reached the final three times in the latter. Last year the future cup’s runners-up Alaves have stopped the Celts by taking a narrow 1:0 victory at home. The first leg ended with a goalless draw. This season the guests beat Eibar twice in the round of 32.

The Sky Blues demonstrate a mediocre performance in La Liga. They possess only the 15-th rank in the table. They earned 22 points and keep a safe distance from the relegation zone. Last match day Celta have drawn 2:2 with Real Madrid.

New signing Philippe Coutinho isn’t making his debut until February, and he misses out along with Samuel Umtiti and Paco Alcácer who are also injured.

After resting Lionel Messi, Andrés Iniesta and Luis Suárez for the first leg Ernesto Valverde calls all of his superstars to try and get the win here. The last two H2H meetings in the frames of La Liga ended with 2:2 at Camp Nou and 4:3 at Balaidos.

"We go into the game with the idea of winning it,” commented Barça boss Ernesto Valverde on Wednesday. “It’s true that Celta have to score and they have done that in all their games away from home.”

Indeed, Celta’s players have any fear against the giants. This is proved with the latest results. The hosts have an optimal roster with the best strikers. No doubt who will promote to the quarterfinal stage. We predict both teams to score (yes).
