Barcelona vs Murcia – Copa del Rey: Second 90 minutes of the tie between Barcelona and Murcia…
This time at Camp Nou, on a match of the round of 32 of Copa del Rey.
Barcelona is leading La Liga with all credit, having conquered 35 out of 39 possible points.
Their excellent performance is much due to the defensive consistency they have presented this season.
After the two legs of the Spanish Supercup against Real Madrid, the Blaugrana have only conceded 5 goals on the next 19 official matches in all competitions.
On the 1st leg, Barcelona has beaten this Murcia 3-0, with Valverde resting the usual starters.
Murcia occupies the 5th place on the Segunda Divisón B – Group 4 with 25 points conquered after 16 rounds. So far, they have 7 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses, having scored 23 goals and conceded 16 so far.
Their away performance isn’t exactly brilliant, since they have only won 2 of the away matches they played in the league.
Still, they are probably in the best moment of form they have been all season, getting 5 wins on their last 6 matches.
Barcelona vs Murcia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Valverde should start the same starting 11 of the 1st leg, or very close to that, so it should be enough to control this match against a very inferior opponent.
More than trouncing, I believe that Barcelona’s defensive process will work well again and will be able to keep danger away from their goal.
