MATCH PREVIEW
Barcelona will be looking to maintain their rampaging form in Copa del Rey intact as the they travel to Levante to take on the hosts in the first leg of the round of 16 on Thursday.

The Blaugrana are coming into this match after knocking off Cultural Leonesa by a 5-1 margin across two legs of round of 32. However, Levante have also shown good form as they come into this match after eliminating Lugo by a 3-1 margin in the round of 32.

They have already met each other in La Liga recently and are expected to produce a mouth watering clash once again this time.

PREDICTED STARTING XIs

Levante (4-4-2): ​Fernandez; Coke, Cabaco, Rober, Luna; Simon, Campana, Bardhi, Mayoral; Boateng, Dwamena.

Barcelona (4-3-3): ​Cillessen; Semedo, Brandariz, Lenglet, Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, Alena; Malcom, L. Suarez, D. Suarez.

DREAM11 TEAM FORMATION
APPROACH: Both sides have been in good form and multiple goals can be expected. Plenty of changes are expected in both sides with important La Liga fixtures ahead. Regular names will be missing. Go light on defence with a maximum of three defenders. At least two of them should be from Barca along with their goal-keeeper as well. There is enough fantasy potential in midfield and forward lines of both the teams. Make sure to pick the best players in a 3-4-3 formation.

MUST HAVE PLAYERS: With most regular names expected to be on bench, Barcelona striker Luis Suarez and midfielder Ivan Rakitic are at the top of must-have list. Full backs Jordi Albaand Nelson Semedo will offer good value as well. Boateng and Dwamena from Levante are the players you should bank on for your team.
