Cornella – Barcelona
Just few days after losing the Spanish Super Cup final, Barcelona will have to visit Segunda B team Cornella in a match from the 1/16-finals of the Copa del Rey. We will try to give you a really good soccer betting winning tips for this fixture. Let’s go.
For Barcelona these have been difficult few days. On Sunday the Catalans had the chance to win their first trophy for the season, and first under the management Ronald Koeman, but they lost against Athletic Bilbao in Sevilla. Antoine Griezmann scored twice against the Basques, but these two goals were not enough at the end.
Now we expect to see the manager Ronald Koeman to make some changes in his line-up. Players like Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Jordi Alba, Clement Lenglet, Sergio Busquets, Frenkie De Jong and Pedri should get a rest and sit on the bench. Meanwhile players like Neto, Junior Firpo, Samuel Umtiti, Oscar Mingueza, Miralem Pjanic, Trincao and Martin Braithwaite should start. The young winger Konrad De La Fuente is another option for Koeman to get a place in the starting eleven.
There’s a lot of dissapointment in Barca’s camp right now, but the manager Ronald Koeman does not have a choice here – he must find a way to regroup his team and make it ready for the next challenge.
Barcelona should be careful with Cornella and there’s a very good reason for it. In the previous round they caused the biggest upset in the tournament so far. Cornella hosted Atletico Madrid and eliminated the current La Liga leaders after a 1-0 win. This will make them much more confident against Barcelona on Thursday.
That’s the soccer betting winning tips for the Copa del Rey 1/16-finals clash between Cornella and Barcelona. Let’s see if Barca can regroup and get back to winning after the dissapointment in the Super Cup.
