Copa Del Rey: LID VS BAR Dream11 Prediction | Barcelona will be aiming to advance to the last-16 stage of the Copa del Rey when they head to Andalusia on Wednesday evening to take on the third-tier side Linares Deportivo. The visitors are the holders of the competition, having beaten Athletic Bilbao in last season’s final, while they are the most successful team in the history of the tournament, lifting the trophy on 31 occasions.

Linares Deportivo, who operates in the third tier of Spanish football, was only founded in 2009 and has never operated at the top level, most recently playing in the fourth and third tiers. Barcelona, meanwhile, will enter Wednesday’s contest off the back of a 1-0 win over Mallorca in La Liga, with the Catalan giants managing to triumph despite their lengthy absentee list.

Barcelona, as mentioned, is the most successful team in the history of the Copa del Rey, lifting the trophy on 31 occasions, including last season, when they beat Athletic Bilbao 4-0 in the final. Barcelona has been victorious in five of their last six Copa del Rey fixtures, but they have only won one of their last four away matches and will once again be missing a number of first-team players here.

Linares Deportivo’s side is expected to be similar to the one that started against Alaves in the second round of the competition, with a 4-4-2 formation including Hugo Diaz in the final third.

Fran Carnicer and Rodri are again in line for spots in midfield, but head coach Gonzalez has plenty of options for change in the attacking areas, with Cristian Carracedo and Nando Copete competing for starting roles.

Barcelona, meanwhile, will again be without the services of Memphis Depay, Sergi Roberto, Pedri, Ansu Fati, and Martin Braithwaite through injury, but Sergio Busquets is back, having served a suspension.

The visitors are also expected to again be without Philippe Coutinho, Abde Ezzalzouli, Gavi, Ousmane Dembele, Alejandro Balde, Jordi Alba, and Sergino Dest following recent positive coronavirus tests.

Upsets can occur in the Copa del Rey, but we are finding it very difficult to predict one in this match; Barcelona will again be missing a number of key players, but the Catalan giants should have more than enough quality to comfortably progress to the last-16 stage of the competition once again.
