Barcelona vs Cornella is always exciting to watch.
Barcelona looks to book a spot in the Copa del Rey round of 16 when they travel to face Cornella on Thursday. Lionel Messi’s status for this one is unclear as Barcelona’s appeal his two-match ban after receiving a red card for striking an opponent in the head in the Spanish Super Cup final loss to Athletic Bilbao last weekend. Cornella enters the game as the underdog but are confident in their chances of pulling off another cup shocker. Barcelona vs Cornella is always exciting to watch.

Cornella: The upset over La Liga leader Atletico Madrid last time out has this team believing, in high spirits and ready to go. Why can’t they do it again? The key will be to focus on defence, try to go on the counter or strike on set pieces. But the truth is, they’ve only won two games since the end of November and even lost to Barcelona’s B team in the process. Another mini-miracle will be needed.
Barcelona: This team is quite average with Messi, so if they’re without him it will be interesting to see who steps up. Antoine Griezmann is in positive form after scoring twice last time out, and Barca might not be able to afford to play a lot of young guys after what Cornella did against Atleti. Barcelona will surely concede some chances but expect them to create enough opportunities to put this one away.
