Barcelona’s Copa del Rey lives are on the line when they face Espanyol on Thursday in the second leg of their quarterfinal. Barca lost in the first leg 1-0 and must perform at home to move on, looking to join Sevilla, Valencia and Leganes in the semifinals.
Barcelona enter the second leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final against Espanyol on Thursday with an uncertain future in the tournament after losing the first game 1-0 at the RCDE Stadium.
The Blaugrana failed to claim a first-leg lead for the second time in as many Copa rounds, and Oscar Melendo’s strike has given Los Periquitos a distinct advantage in their pursuit of a semi-final place.
Defeat at the RCDE Stadium last week brought an end to Barca’s unbeaten run across all competitions, although a much tougher approach is to be expected from manager Ernesto Valverde’s men this time around.
Espanyol will not only have to prevent their hosts from scoring at the Camp Nou if they’re to advance, but Quique Sanchez Flores’ side will also likely need to add to their existing tally to ensure qualification.
Read on for a preview of Thursday’s second leg, complete with match details and all the essential live-stream information.
But Barca will be buoyed by the fact that Real Madrid were knocked out by Leganes last night, giving them a golden opportunity to win a fourth successive Copa del Rey if they can just get past Espanyol.
arcelona drew their last-16 first leg against Celta Vigo before romping to a 5-0 win at the Camp Nou in the second leg, a feat they’ll be looking to repeat in the quarter-finals.
Since losing to Espanyol, the La Liga leaders have bounced back to form with a 5-0 pummelling of Real Betis, where Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez scored two apiece, with the latter marking a milestone in the process
A second-string setup couldn’t keep that run alive across all competitions, but a reinforced XI will be expected to take the fight to Flores’ men this time around and again dig the Camp Nou hosts out of a hole.
