Barcelona have finally fixed their form in La Liga, managing to secure six victories in the last eight appearances.
Barcelona will be looking to bounce back immediately from their Spanish Super Cup disappointment when they travel to third-tier side Cornella for Thursday’s Copa del Rey bout.

Cornella vs Barcelona
Copa Del Rey
Date: Thursday, 21 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Nuevo Municipal de Cornella.
Cornella vs Barcelona Head-to-head
- There were no previous head to head encounters, at least not in official matches between Cornella and Barcelona.
- Even Leo Messi lost his nerves and earned first red card since he arrived at Camp Nou.
- Next match for Barca is scheduled for Thursday night.
- They will face Segunda B squad Cornella in Copa Del Rey and anything but a convincing win, even with reserve roster, would be labelled as another failure.
Cornella vs Barcelona Prediction
Barcelona manager Koeman should ring the changes for their first Copa del Rey game of the campaign, which could have Cornella licking their lips at the prospect of another mammoth upset.
The hosts will not have to deal with a rampant Lionel Messi on the night, but Barca will be desperate to return to winning ways and have the chance to utilise their impressive squad depth, so we think the Cornella dream will end here.
