A chance to predict the score of tonight's Copa del Rey Round of 32 clash between FC Barcelona and FC Cartagena at the Camp Nou

David Ramos

FC Barcelona will book their place in the Copa del Rey Round of 32 tonight, as they wrap up their tie with FC Cartagena at the Camp Nou. With a healthy 4-1 aggregate lead after the first-leg, Barcelona are all but through and have an excellent chance to demonstrate their superiority with another emphatic win tonight. Indeed, that appears to be the plan for head coach Gerardo Martino, who has overlooked a number of B team players to name a strong 16-man squad for tonight's match.

Sergio Busquets, Xavi and Gerard Piqué have all been given the day off, but Martino will welcome the Murcian minnows with a line-up likely to include in-form Brazilian striker, Neymar and a whole host of World Cup winners, including club captain Carles Puyol, Pedro and Cesc Fàbregas. Forget about winning by four goals, Cartagena could consider tonight's match a success if they simply don't lose by four.

Despite the wealth of talent and experience, Martino has named an element of youth in the squad, as both Sergi Roberto and Cristian Tello are tipped to start, with Martin Montoya also a candidate to start at full-back. Can this trio seize the opportunity with a good, strong performance? Will Neymar grab another few goals to wrap up his incredible week? Will Cesc Fàbregas actually start in midfield? And more importantly, what will the final score be at the Camp Nou?
