Barcelona v Levante: Key Players
The name says it all, Lionel Messi is sure to bring fear into the heart of the opposition defenders. The Argentine seems to be motivated more than ever as the forward looks to help Barcelona win their 5th Copa del Rey in a row.
The 21-year old Madrid born striker, on loan from Real Madrid, will be hoping to inflict defeat upon their Los Blancos rivals as he looks to score once again against the Bluagrana.
Barcelona v Levante: Prediction
Barcelona are expected to win their match against their opponents very comfortably at the Camp Nou without any further upsets.
Levante though can once again play spoilsport like the last season when the Valencia-based side became the only team to beat the Blaugrana in the league last season, ending their hopes of going unbeaten in the league.
Prediction: Barcelona 3-1 Levante
