Barcelona is by far the best team in Spain, which has proved this season, when it has already settled at the top of the table, where there are chances close to 0 to lose a new title. However, the King’s Cup seems to be a trophy where he has to work for at least another 90 minutes to move to the quarter. Without Luis Suarez & Messi on the field, blaugrana managed to score a 1-1 draw in the Celta, a result that now gives him the first chance to qualify. The Catalans need to make good matches again, as it happened almost every time, because any other draw in 0-0 could put them in a real difficulty. Also, the last time Barca lost on his own home happened in August when he surrendered to the Spanish Super Cup, 1-3 in front of Real Madrid. Since then, a lot of matches have passed, the game in which Messi & Co have scored 11 wins and a draw, but the defensive compartment was enviable with just five goals.
Barcelona: Cilessen – Semedo – Pique – Mascherano – Digne – Paulinho – Busquets – Andre Gomes – Dembele – Suarez – Jose Arnaiz
Celta Vigo began 2018 with the most difficult matches a team could have in domestic competitions in Spain. “Celts” made 1-1 with Barcelona, managing just a few days after that match to draw with the other big team in Spain, Real Madrid and still in a match played on “Balaidos”. Also, the team from Vigo depends greatly on the results achieved at home with her one victory in the last five trips and against a team struggling to avoid relegation, as La Coruna.
Celta Vigo: Sergio – Mallo – Gomez – Fontas – Johny – Wass – Jozabed – Lobotka – Sisto – Aspas – Maxim Gomez
Once Celta Vigo managed to win the “New Camp” and it happened just over three years ago. In fact, I think the game will be as open as in the tour, which will eventually bring us at least three successes, especially as the score on the tour offers a fairly high chance for both teams. Celta made another demonstration of strength in Barcelona and the tour of this season, when he drew at 2.
