Barcelona vs Levante: Preview and TV Schedule

David Ramos

Barcelona are in control after a 4-1 victory in the first leg of their Copa del Rey quarterfinal against Levante.

Barcelona enter Wendesday's Copa del Rey quarterfinal second leg holding a comfortable 4-1 lead over Levante thanks to Cristian Tello's late hat trick in the first leg last week.

Gerardo Martino has decided to leave Xavi Hernández, Dani Alves and Sergio Busquets off the roster to allow them to rest, bringing Alex Song, Martin Montoya and Andrés Iniesta back. Barca are coming off a solid 3-0 league victory over struggling Málaga that kept them on top of La Liga, just ahead of Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid.

Levante need a minor miracle to overturn the first leg result, especially with the second leg being at the Camp Nou. Les Granotes have visited the stadium seven times since their first trip during the 1963-64 season and have never won a match there.
