FC Barcelona vs Deportivo Alaves – Copa del Rey 2nd leg preview

27 Nov

The Copa del Rey is back tomorrow night with what should be a relatively simple second leg game against Alaves at Camp Nou. Having won 0-3 at Mendizorroza in the first leg Tito Vilanova has the luxury of being able to rest Valdés, Iniesta, Piqué, Busquets, Alba, Xavi and Leo Messi, though he has said that out of respect for Alaves and for the fans the team will be competitive and will treat the game seriously. The sixteen-man squad for the game is made up of the other eleven fit first-team players which includes David Villa, plus Oier Olazabal, Carles Planas, Sergi Roberto, Gerard Deulofeu and Cristian Tello.With so much talk about Messi’s chances of beating Gerd Muller’s record of 85 goals in a year, the fact that he has been left out of tomorrow’s game is noteworthy.
