Barça come into this one on the back of two amazing comebacks, one at Betis last Sunday and the one before that was memorable away to Granada, which set up this semi-final with the Rojiblancos. Barça are showing a fighting spirit that we’ve simply not seen from this team in a very long time, and even though the performances aren’t up there with the best teams in the world, we know the Blaugrana will not give up. But sometimes, even the best fighting spirit can’t overcome too much adversity. And that’s what the Blaugrana will face on Wednesday, with eight first team players missing through injury and just 13 senior outfield players available, all of them seemignly running on empty thanks to an insane schedule and four extra time periods played in the last three weeks.
Facing an in-form Sevilla team with all of those problems just one week away from a huge Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain might just be too big a test for this team. But maybe, just maybe, their never say die attitude will carry them to a big result that will give them a shot ahead of the second leg in three weeks.
Sevilla entered the Copa del Rey in the very first round, beating Ciudad de Lucena 3-0 before wins over Linares Deportivo, Leganes, Valencia and Almeria sent them on their way to the semi-finals. Los Nervionenses are currently on a seven-game winning run which includes a 3-0 win over Getafe this past weekend, also elevating them to fourth on the La Liga table.
Barcelona, like their hosts, are on a fine run of form at present, having won each of their last six games across all competitions. While the Blaugrana have not always been entirely convincing, their resilience has been impressive, to say the least. As far as the Copa del Rey is concerned, Ronald Koeman & co. began their campaign in the Round of 32 and have beaten Cornella, Rayo Vallecano and Granada en route to the semi-finals.

Sevilla: Julen Lopetegui’s team enters on a seven-game winning streak where the defense has been key. In that stretch, they only conceded one goal and have five straight clean sheets. One of the biggest reasons is the improved play of Jules Kounde, who is becoming a superstar defender. His ability to clear out dangerous balls in the air, and his tackling ability on Lionel Messi will be crucial.
