Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 27 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Campo de Futbol de Vallecas.
The Catalans are back to their winning ways, and players are slowly finding chemistry under the new coach. Moreover, talisman Lionel Messi will be returning to active duty after his two-match suspension, and will be adamant to get back at his critics and haters.
Going on, for the first time in five years, Ronald Koeman’s men are on a five-match winning run on the road in La Liga, and have won their last seven away fixtures on the trot in all competitions.
This Wednesday, they are pitted against a team from the lower division, and this practically establishes the Catalans as the firm favorites.
Moreover, Koeman’s men also have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years as well.
Meanwhile, the Red Sashes are on an impressive stretch of results, but mainly in the Segunda Division though.
By the looks of things, expect Barcelona to post a convincing win this Wednesday at the Campo de Futbol de Vallecas.
