Barcelona are aiming to maintain their mini winning streak as they face up Levante in Copa del Rey’s round of 16 first leg on Thursday, 10.
Blaugrana Keen on Repeating Big Win Over Levante
Winning their last three games, including a big victory over Granotas back in December, El Barca are in a confident mood for the midweek battle.
Although Ernesto Valverde will look to rest some important player, notably, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, Barca still have enough talents to take down their opponent.
Playing away from home shouldn’t be an issue for El Barca, though lacking focus can give them some problems, especially if they are playing without Messi.
Levante Hoping to Shock Barca
Unconvincing result on their latest meeting against El Barca will surely give that sense of concern for head coach Paco Lopez.
However, Granotas players must forget about that heavy defeat in La Liga and set their focus on Thursday, while hoping their opponent won’t be at their best.
Only winning one out of their last five meetings with Blaugrana, Levante won’t have the utmost confidence for that midweek tie, but Lopez must urge his players to give their best shot.
The home team will try to take advantage over El Barca’s potential squad rotation and put on a brave performance in front of their home crowd.
