Barcelona's players are still smarting with anger over what happened in the La Liga clash with Espanyol last weekend. The Azulgranas accuse their city neighbours of being overly physical and when they left the Cornellà-El Prat stadium they were still fuming, as goalkeeper Claudio Bravo told Movistar TV. Not even four days have gone by and the teams are now set to face each other once again, this time in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey.

The first leg is at the Camp Nou tonight, where the visitors can expect a 'warm' welcome. There has always been a fierce rivalry between the teams, but recent statments made by the Espanyol president, Joan Collet, have not gone down well at the Blaugrana camp. Luis Enrique plans to rest some of his regular starting eleven, and will field the 'winter signings', Aleix Vidal and Arda Turan.
