The Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo match will be played on Thursday, January 11, at the Camp Nou, Barcelona. This is the second leg of Copa del Rey 8th finals. In the first leg played in Vigo a week ago, the result was 1:1.

STATS

  • Barcelona haven't lost in 27 straight games in all competitions. Their last defeat came in August against Real Madrid.
  • Celta is in a series of three matches without a defeat. They stayed undefeated against both Barcelona and Real Madrid during that period.

HEAD TO HEAD

In their previous ten meetings, Barcelona recorded five victories, Celta won three matches, while two games ended in a draw. Celta was one of the toughest competitors for Barcelona in the past three years. Eight out of those ten games ended with over 2.5 goals scored.

BARCELONA NEWS

Barcelona is nine points ahead of Atletico Madrid in the league and it seems they will reclaim the title after Real Madrid domination last season. Copa del Rey is not their priority, but they would like to repeat the triple crown they won several seasons ago. Since we saw a draw in the first match, Barcelona will have to be careful in the second leg, especially if we know that Celta is traditionally tough opponent for them. In the league, Barcelona defeated Levante by 3:0 in the previous game and it seems they will be ready for the clash against Celta.
