Barcelona lock horns with Sevilla in this fierce and exciting second-leg of the Copa Del Rey tournament. Sevilla won the first leg, 2-0 and start favorites against the Catalans. But Barcelona defeated Sevilla on the 27th of Feb, in their La Liga fixture. They would draw confidence from this win and would look to capitalize against Sevilla.
Ronald Araujo is a doubtful starter to the game because of his ankle injury. Pedri has suffered a muscle injury and has been ruled out of this fixture.
Lucas Ocampos and Marcos Acuna are injured and will not be available for this match. Youssef, Torres and Suso are likely to get much greater game time.

Their title hopes are dashed as they trail table toppers Atletico Madrid by 5 points and have also played a less game.

Lionel Messi is in top form and will be eager to get the Catalan giants back into the game.
Sevilla are presently fourth in the La Liga table with 48 points under their belt. They had good momentum on their side but it came to a screeching halt with Barca outclassing them in the last game.
