Barcelona will host Sevilla in the second game of their Copa Del Rey 1/4 final clash. The first game in Sevilla ended 2:0 for the hosts and now Barca need to win with three goals difference, or at least 2:0 to enter extra time. Last time out Lionel Messi was given a rest and much of the second string players were on the field, but now the five time Golden Ball winner will be on the pitch from the first whistle. He has shown countless times, that on his day he is unplayable and is more than capable of destroying any opponent by himself.
