Sure win prediction today for Ibiza-Barcelona
Barcelona visits Ibiza in a match from the 1/16-finals of the Spanish Copa del Rey. Let’s spend few minutes to take a look at it in our sure win prediction today.
This is going to be Quique Setien’s just second game as Barcelona manager. He debuted with a 1-0 win over Granada in La Liga, days after replacing the sacked Ernesto Valverde. It was a tough game for Barca and Setien at the Camp Nou, but once again Lionel Messi saved the Catalans with a winning goal in the second half. Leo executed a great backheel assist from Arturo Vidal.
Most likely Setien will use a lot of different players against Ibiza on Wednesday. Some of the aces could get a rest, while players like Neto, Junior Firpo, Nelson Semedo, Arthur, Riqui Puig and Carles Perez shall start from the first minute. Ansu Fati could also start in a second consecutive game after playing 79 minutes against Granada.
What’s expected from Quique Setien is to improve not just Barcelona’s results, but the way the team plays as well. Despite of winning two La Liga titles with Barca, Ernesto Valverde was critisized for the lack of excitement in Los Cules’ football. Can Setien makes Barca more attractive? Only time will tell.
Ibiza are a team which currently plays in Segunda B. They are third in the standings with 43 points, unbeaten in their last five games. Ibiza could make a step forward to Segunda Division, if they keep this level of performance.
In Copa del Rey Ibiza reached the 1/16-finals after eliminating Pontevedra and Albacete. They are currently managed by Pablo Alfaro.
In our sure win prediction today we won’t try to tell you that we expect some surprises here, because we don’t. We believe that Barcelona will dominate Ibiza in this Copa del Rey game, even if Quique Setien leaves some of his biggest stars on the bench. Barca will go through here.
