Linares Deportivo – Barcelona (11 PM)
Barcelona will have to visit a team from the third division of Spain in search of advancing to the round of 16 with peace of mind. The culés will not have Luuk de Jong due to suspension and could register Dani Alves for his official return to competition.
Linares -founded in 2009- seems like a simple rival and it surely will be on paper, but it comes as a surprise by eliminating Deportivo Alavés, another team that belongs to LaLiga.
❗Dani Alves will almost certainly make his return for Barcelona in the Copa del Rey match against Linares tomorrow. Barça are expected to register him in the coming hours.#FCB ??

CD Atlético Baleares – Celta de Vigo (11:30 PM)
Celta will be measured against another team from the third that fights at the top of its competition. Chacho Coudet’s men aim to go as far as possible in the Copa del Rey and have no casualties for this match.
