Barcelona and Sevilla meet for the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final clash on Wednesday at 8pm (UK time), with the visitors currently 2-0 up on aggregate.
Julen Lopetegui’s men ran out confident victors at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan last month, with goals from Jules Kounde and former Barca midfielder Ivan Rakitic giving them a two-goal cushion heading to Catalonia later this week.

Barcelona vs Sevilla build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
It was a frustrating evening in Andalusia for Ronald Koeman last month, but he will be buoyed by the recent league victory over Sevilla at the weekend, a fascinating precursor to Wednesday’s showdown. The Dutchman will be hoping to mimic those exploits and book a ticket in the final against one of Athletic Bilbao or Levante.
Los Nervionenses were ruthless in their approach against Barca at the start of last month and will feel confident of holding out in the return leg, but the weekend’s 2-0 defeat in La Liga exposed the soft underbelly of Lopetegui’s side and proved they are not infallible. His job will be to reflect on that defeat to Koeman’s men and devise a gameplan that ensures his side are not exposed so easily.
- Barcelona (vs Sevilla): Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Pique, Lenglet; Dest, Busquets, De Jong, Pedri*, Alba; Dembele, Messi.
- Sevilla (vs Barcelona): Bono; Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Escudero; Jordan, Fernando, Gomez, Rakitic, Munir; De Jong.
Despite triumphing over Sevilla at the weekend, the victory came at a cost as Pedri hobbled off injured and was later seen on crutches. The club confirmed in the aftermath that the teenage sensation pulled a muscle in his left leg and his recovery will now be closely monitored, all but ruling him out of this contest. Elsewhere, Ansu Fati remains sidelined, though he is closing in on a return, while Philippe Coutinho, Sergi Roberto, Miralem Pjanic and Ronald Araujo are all currently out of action (the latter suffering another setback at the weekend).
Marcos Acuna and Lucas Ocampos are the only major concerns for Sevilla.

Players to watch:
- Barcelona: In what has been a mixed start to Koeman’s tenure, which was never going to be a seamless transition given the backdrop of uncertainty surrounding Lionel Messi’s future and the sheer volume of inconsistencies in the squad, there have been nuggets of positivity. One of those has been the rapid emergence (or re-emergence) of Ousmane Dembele, who is finally starting to showcase his worth in a Barca jersey and influence games as he once did at Borussia Dortmund and Rennes. Still only 23, Dembele’s career in Catalonia looked over before it ever really clicked into gear, but the Frenchman has seemed to come alive under Koeman and is now looking a considerable threat alongside Messi.
- Sevilla: As always, results between such high calibre sides will always hinge on fine margins, and one player who could produce that moment of inspiration for the visitors, in what is expected to be a highly-competitive game, is Alejandro Gomez. The January arrival has showcased flashes of his world-class creative quality since leaving Atalanta, having almost single-handedly revolutionised the club alongside Gian Piero Gasperini, but there is still plenty to come from the Argentine in Andalusia. As Sevilla walk into the lion’s den looking to protect their slender advantage (and lets face it, a 2-0 cushion is hardly a cushion when Messi is on the turf), Gomez could one up his compatriot with a split second of invention, and Lopetegui could do with his mid-season acquisition bringing some of his Atalanta inspiration to Catalonia.
