Barcelona vs Celta (By: Jshoot)

Barcelona will face Celta Vigo in Camp Nou for 2nd leg Copa Del Rey after 1-1 result in 1st leg last week. This is Copa Del Rey match of two teams that at the moment are hard to predict.

Why I call this match is difficult to predict? Because we don't know how Barcelona is going to approach this 2nd leg of match. In first leg they didn't use Messi & Suarez, both of them weren't even on the bench & Dembele only played as a subs. Are they going take this 2nd leg seriously now that they have a chance to go through to the next round or still play without Messi & Suarez & not even start Dembele? Who knows. However, Barcelona has confirmed their squad will be Ter Stegen, Cillessen, Nelson Semedo, Gerard Piqué, Mascherano, Alba, Digne, Vermaelen, Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta, Paulinho, Sergi Roberto, André Gomes, Carles Aleñá, Suárez, Messi, Dembélé. So at least we know for sure Suarez, Messi & Dembele will feature in this game either in XI or on the bench. I think Barcelona will go with their strong XI.

What about Celta Vigo. I believe they will go with their strong team. Their main attackers Sisto, Gomez, Aspas are in official squad. However, a few days ago they had tough match against Real Madrid. Playing 3 times in a week against Barcelona & Real Madrid isn't easy. Fatigue might affect the players. But I can't see why they aren't going strong team to beat Barcelona in this game, their hard work in first leg will be pointless if they don't go full squad.

Both teams have quality attackers in their squad and they are attacking teams. This season, most games involves Celta Vigo against top side will always have a lot of goals and both team to score. For example Valencia vs Celta Vigo was 2-1, Celta vs Barcelona 1-1, Barcelona vs Celta was 2-2, & Sevilla vs Celta was 2-1. I believe this will go both team to score & over 2.5 goals. However the odd of both team to score is 1.9 & the odd of both team to score & over 2.5 goals is only 2. If the 1st leg was 1-1 draw only, I don't see why this game can't become 1-1 again, so I will go with both team to score, the difference of the odd is only 0.1 anyway.

I dont think celta will put up a strong line up because 2 days they got a crucial match vs Levante. Barcelona now lead the table by 9 points. Some more last match vs celta , Barcelona put up mostly reserve players , celta cant even beat them. Most likely celta will rotate their lineup to cope with their hectic fixture
