Barcelona was stunned last week and almost all of their star players were on the pitch. Espanyol managed to weather the storm, but Barcelona will certainly put them under an immense pressure from the first minute in the second leg. The Catalan giants want triple crown this season and they will send their best team on the pitch.

Espanyol finally defeated their city rivals last week, but they lost the match in La Liga afterwards. Currently, they are 14th on the table but their first league status shouldn't be endangered. Therefore, they will focus on the match against Barcelona and try to pull out another miracle. Espanyol will try to save their net and defend with all players. If they survive the first 30 minutes of the game, the things might become really interesting.
