Copa del Rey: Barcelona Host Betis at the Camp Nou

New, comments

In the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey, Barcelona will host Betis, a second division team, at Camp Nou. While the blaugrana also harbour great ambitions in the Copa del Rey, Guardiola will certainly use this opportunity to field some of his less used players. Afellay will probably be given a chance to play 90 minutes, finally.

Also, the three best players in the world will probably be on the bench. Players like Keita, Thiago, Mascherano and Bojan are likely to be given a chance tomorrow. Barcelona's squad might be short, but every player is top qualiy, so even the reserves are expected to beat Betis tomorow and prove that Barcelona have enough squad depth to win everything,

Betis will try to surprise Barcelona, but if Pep's men play to their usual standards, Betis's chances are quite limited as Barcelona seek for their 26th Copa del Rey trophy.
