GOOD EVENING FROM BARCELONA

Welcome to our live coverage of the Copa del Rey semi-final clash between Barcelona and Sevilla at the Nou Camp.

Barca have found themselves at a disadvantage after losing 2-0 in the first leg at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium last month.

The Catalans are after at least two goals to even the aggregate created by Jules Kounde and former Blaugrana star Ivan Rakitic’s goals.

However, Barcelona proved capable of turning things around after beating Sevilla 2-0 away in the league on Saturday thanks to Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi’s strikes.

But manager Ronald Koeman is not without injury problems heading to this tricky encounter as Gerard Pique and Ronald Araujo both picked up knocks in Seville – Pedri also hobbled off with a leg injury and could also be sidelined.

Philippe Coutinho, Ansu Fati and Sergi Roberto are still nursing a meniscus, knee and thigh injury respectively.

Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui, on the other hand, will be without Marcos Acuna and Lucas Ocampos due to a thigh and ankle problem respectively.

Lopetegui could opt for a few changes to his line-up and thus the likes of Suso, Oliver Torres and Youssef En-Nesyri are all in contention after coming off the bench on Saturday
