Here you’ll find all you need to know about this game, including a preview, storylines, predictions, odds, and where you can watch the 2021-2022 Copa del Rey game live in the United States.
Barcelona is experiencing an unsatisfactory season. Messi’s departure exacerbated a team’s troubles, which were already severe. As if that weren’t enough, they were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League in the group stage in 2021, and they are currently fifth in La Liga, still in contention for a place in the following UCL, but far behind Real Madrid at the top.
The “Culés” have a chance to get off to a good start in 2022 by defeating a competitor who, on paper, should be easy to beat. Linares Deportivo (a squad re-founded in 2009 after the disappearance of its predecessor, C. D. Linares) are now competing in Spain’s third division and will attempt to surprise Barcelona on Wednesday.
