Kick off: 1 February 22:30
With Barcelona in such a commanding position in La Liga, expect Ernesto Valverde to field an extremely strong starting eleven in this Copa Del Rey match. Jasper Cillessen will continue in goal, but apart from that it should be close to a first choice team. Valencia have serious injury issues with centre-backs Jeisson Murillo and Gabriel Paulista missing. Ezekiel Garay started the weekend game at centre-back but is a doubt with a shoulder problem, whilst influential wideman Goncalo Guedes is also a major doubt. Valencia come into this game having lost their last three competitive games, but Marcelino’s side showed that they could compete well with Barcelona earlier this season and will be pushed on by the idea of having the Mestalla to head back to in the second leg.
Prediction: Both teams do NOT score goal
