  • Competition: Spain - Copa del Rey
  • Date: Thursday, 19th, January 2023
  • Kickoff: 19:00 UK / 20.00 CET
  • Venue: Estadio Municipal Alfonso Murube (Ceuta)

Ceuta, a club from the autonomous city of the same name, eliminated CD Utreta 1-0 in the first round, and in the next round beat the second division team, UD Ibiza, with a result of 3-2. The popular "Mackerels", namely, made a pleasant surprise in the third round, as they removed the member of the first class Elche from the Copa del Rey with a minimal 1-0, and with that victory, they qualified among the 16 of the best for the first time in the last 80 years!

Barcelona, the club with by far the most cups in the history of the Copa del Rey, did not have a brilliant start to that competition, as the Catalans dropped the advantage three times in the third round against a member of the third tier of Spanish football. They were persistent and combative players of Intercity, they showed their teeth to Xavi's pullens, they somehow secured extra time, but they could not go beyond that. The man of the decision was Ansu Fati, who put an end to the match with a goal in the 104th minute for the final 3-2.

Ceuta vs Barcelona Betting Tips: Over 2.5

The draw was definitely not in favor of Ceuta, since they got Barcelona as their opponent. These two rivals know each other well, having met three times in the Copa del Rey so far, with the Catalans winning each game.

To reach this stage of the competition is a really great achievement for such a small club. However, beating Barcelona, even without a few key players, is hard to imagine, especially considering Ceuta's current season.

Ceuta is having a season to forget in Primera RFEF - Group 1. The club from the Spanish autonomous city has only 8 points, they are firmly "nailed" to the bottom of the table and it is almost certain that they will be relegated.

Only one triumph, with as many as 11 defeats suffered in the previous 14 league games does not give them any hope ahead of the duel with the Catalan giants. The defensive segment was their weakest "point" this season, as their goalkeepers took the ball out of their net 36 times, which gives an average of 1.89 goals conceded per game.

With such a performance, and even with thunderous support from the stands, the Ceuta footballers simply have nothing to look for in the clash with the Catalans, who come in a phenomenal mood, after winning the trophy in the Spanish Super Cup, cleaning Real Madrid from the field in the final, 3-1.

Xavi will surely, even though the players disappointed against Intercity, take the field again with a "colorful" line-up. As a result, Ceuta hopes to score at least one goal and entertain their fans, but we believe that Barcelona will take their next opponent much more seriously, in order not to be feared of elimination. In that case, we expect the attacking potential of the Catalans to destroy the hollow defense of Ceuta, so we hope that there will be at least three goals on the scoreboard at the end.

There is no doubt that coach Jose Juan Romero will name the strongest possible starting line-up, given that there are no personnel problems, including Rodri Rios as the main attacking figure.

Meanwhile, Xavi will start again with players who have had less minutes in the current season. In relation to the match with Intercity, now Raphinha should start in the starting XI instead of Ousmane Dembele.

At the same time, Ferran Torres and Robert Lewandowski could even start in the first XI against Ceuta, bearing in mind that the duo will be suspended for two more LaLiga games.
