Copa del Rey: FC Barcelona vs Malaga CF: Predict the Score

Claudio Villa

A chance to predict the score of tonight's Copa del Rey quarter-final, first-leg match-up between FC Barcelona and Malaga

Barcelona take a temporary break from La Liga action tonight when they face-off against the very team they defeated at the weekend - Malaga. Barca ran out 3-1 winners that night, knocking Malaga down to fifth place in the process, and they will be looking for a similar result tonight. While this is arguably the least important competition left for the Blaugrana, that doesn't mean we should take it lightly and indeed, Tito Vilanova appears to feel the same way. Lionel Messi is expected to start for example, and if he can replicate Sunday's performance, Tito will be confident of yet another victory.

Malaga have bolstered their squad since that defeat, loaning in Lucas Piazon from Chelsea, but the Brazilian wasn't signed in time to make the cut for this match. Therefore, Manuel Pellegrini has roughly the same squad at his disposal, and while he is expected to rest a few key players, Barcelona cannot afford to take this game lightly. Will Vilanova be able to lead his team to victory, or will Pellegrini be able to exact revenge for Sunday's loss? Predict the score of tonight's clash by voting in our poll, and by commenting below with your prediction. Best of luck!
