Barça face Real Sociedad in the Copa del Rey / FC Barcelona
The Copa del Rey will no longer be affordable for Real Sociedad and above all for FC Barcelona When both teams meet at Camp Nou on Spotify this Wednesday.
It was the last draw of one match, and the hope was that the draw would be played in the Blaugrana territory. There is no margin of error for the ‘champions’ of the competition and for Real We want to repeat the success we experienced with the 2020 edition when we won the Derby against the Athletic Club.
Barça will be measured for the first time in this tournament, from KO to Primera. Real Sociedad had already done so in Round 16 against RCD Mallorca, winning by the smallest margin. Blaugrana therefore enter the cup match against Real. This would be a difficult stumbling block given their excellent results.
Imanol Alguacil’s men have already won 9 matches. And they want it to be ten. Between La Liga Santander and this Cup, with the World Cup ‘break’ in between, ‘Churiurdin’ has beaten Sevilla, Casaregas, Coria, Osasuna, Logrones, Almeria, Athletic Club, Mallorca and Rayo his Vallecano. rice field.
Blaugrana don’t want to be the next team on that list, with Camp Nou on their side, cThey want to break that amazing streak and extend their winning streak. Neither are bad.
Xavi Hernández’s side played Real Madrid in the Super Cup and won between league and cup They add four straight wins.
Previously, the Catalans gave AD Ceuta FC (0-5) and CF Intercity (3-4) accounts until reaching these quarter-finals. Both are from the Third Division.
The first duel with LaLiga rivals will be against nobody as Real are in third place. 6 points from Barcelonalead the table and recover from San Sebastian in the game.
The last precedent in the Cup was the quarter-finals of the 2016/17 season, followed by a round trip. Double Blaugrana wins (0-1 and 5-2).
Previously, in 2013/14, They were seen in the semi-finals and also won the ‘culés’ (2-0 in Barcelona, 1-1 in Donostia).
San Sebastian’s last win was in 1980 at round 16. Barcelona and all competitions, Real have not won since 1991.
In Immanor’s words, the Royal Society arrives without excuse. But it arrives without Mikel Merino and David Silva. He was out last minute due to discomfort in his soleus muscle.
Without the ‘wizard’ and Merino, Real finally tried to win in Barcelona, Advance to cup semi-finals.
The rest have to pull the car, including Mikel Oyarzabal for another shot. Rayo like Alexander, who scored a goal at the weekend in his victory over Vallecano (0-2), and Robert, who is in action in the Cup, with Navarro. His goal gave the pass this round against Mallorca.
Everyone is fine at Barça. Andreas Christensen also trains normally despite discomfort and is on the list of Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres but only plays in the Cup due to sanctions in La Liga Santander I was able to rest and play fresh. Both refer to ownership.
