All to play for Barca in the second leg of the Copa del Rey tie between FC Barcelona and Celta de Vigo. With the first leg ending 1-1 and Celta's recent history against Barca, this leg will take the priority over weekend's La Liga fixture.

FC Barcelona will be looking to win comfortably the second leg against Celta at the Camp Nou. In order to do that they need Lionel Messi at his best -

For Erneste Valverde, Barca's second leg tie against Celta will take the highest priority over the weekend's travel to Estadio Municipal de Anoeta to take on Real Sociedad. That's the good thing about having a nine point lead over the second placed team in the league; you could prioritize matches. In the league we will get chances to rectify poor results because of the lead. But in the cup we are more or less in a must win match. Technically we need a goalless draw to proceed but that kind of attitude will spell danger. So we should go for the win; anyways we always do!

The last time Celta visisted Camp Nou, the match ended up 2-2 even though poor results for all our main competitor meant we remained unhurt by that result. But it proved that Celta cannot be taken lightly as their playing style always creates trouble for us. In that sense it was reassuring to see Valverde announcing all the major players in the FC Barcelona Match Squad.

Most of the first team players have not yet featured regularly in the Copa del Rey campaign. But tonight's matters will be different. I expect Valverde to send the same eleven which featured against Real Madrid barring the exception of Ter Stegan; in domestic cup ties Cillessen will guard the goal. Barca will be looking to get the victory early on as that will give Valverde the chance to rest his players ahead of the tough visit to Anoeta.
