Ernesto Valverde's men have struggled to beat the Galicians this season, but they will be full of confidence, particularly given recent developments

Defending champions Barcelona will hope to join Real Madrid in the quarter-final of the Copa del Rey when they face Celta Vigo at Camp Nou on Thursday evening.

The Blaugrana played out a 1-1 draw against Celta in the first leg of their last-16 tie last week and they will be determined to go one better in order this evening to ensure their place in the last eight of the competition.

While they are languishing at the wrong end of the Liga table, Celta are riding the crest of a wave at the moment, having drawn with both Barca and Real Madrid in their last two games, so they will be full of confidence heading to Catalunya.
