With a narrow 1-0 home win over Rayo Vallecano last night, Levante booked their place in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals, knowing that FC Barcelona likely stand between them and a place in the final four. Of course, the Blaugrana must first take care of business and see off Getafe in their own backyard having crushed the Madrid-based outfit 4-0 at the Camp Nou last Wednesday.
And judging by Gerardo Martino's 18 man squad for tonight's trip, Barça are not taking this second leg lightly; the likes of Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas could all be in line for starts. Sure, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta are being rested, but is that any consolation when you know that you'll have to face Messi instead?
Having lost their last four matches, Getafe are sliding down the La Liga table and would perhaps be best advised to forget about the Copa del Rey and turn their full attentions to league action. With upcoming matches against Real Sociedad, Almeria, Real Valladolid and Osasuna, Getafe could turn their fortunes around and climb back into the top half.
But with pride to play for, expect Getafe to put up a valiant effort tonight; will it be enough? Will Barcelona overwhelm the hosts for the third time this season? Will Lionel Messi and Neymar start their matches of 2014?
