Linares Deportivo team news

This will be the first meeting between Linares Deportivo, who play their domestic football in Spain’s third tier, and Barcelona which presents an opportunity for Alberto González’s side to cause a seismic upset. The Little Blues have never gone further than a third round berth (which they’ve previously achieved in 2006/07). Momentum is somewhat on their side as Linares Deportivo are on a eight-game unbeaten streak winning seven of those including a penalty shootout success against Gimnàstic Tarragona in the opening Copa round. They would pick up a narrow 2-1 success over struggling La Liga outfit Deportivo Alavés last time out. Jon Etxaniz and Nando Copete with the strikes.

Linares Deportivo predicted XI: Juskevicius; Perejón, Guerrero, Josema, Marín; Sanchidrián, Meléndez, Rodri, Carnicer; Copete, Etxaniz.

Barcelona team news

For the first time since May 2016 — Copa del Rey final meeting against former club Sevilla — we could see Dani Alves wearing a Barcelona jersey in a competitive setting. The much-decorated Brazilian full-back completed his Camp Nou at the backend of 2021 but is only available for selection now. He comes into a Barça team ravaged by injuries and last time out in the league Xavi’s men were only able to run out 0-1 winners at Mallorca which leaves them sitting fifth. Attention is now on successfully defending their Copa del Rey crown; the Catalan giants won a record-extending 31st title last season, with their manager lifting three of those as a player.

Barcelona predicted XI: Neto; Alves, Piqué, García, Araújo; F. de Jong, González, Puig; Akhomach, L. de Jong, Jutglà.

Scoreline prediction: Linares Deportivo 0-3 Barcelona
