Barça and Espanyol are playing Copa del Rey round of 16 second leg this Wednesday
FC Barcelona and Espanyol coaches met this morning one day before the third derby of January. The last two ones had many quarrels and tension between players of boths teams. The two Barcelona clubs will meet again this Wednesday at 9 pm CET to play the second leg of Copa del Rey round of 16 at Cornellà-El Prat stadium.
Luis Enrique talked in press conference after the meeting with Constantino Galca: "If this picture with him helps have less tension, fantastic. But I don't know if it will use. I already did the photo last season."
What's for sure is that Luis Suárez won't be able to play, as he was sanctioned for some statements against Espanyol players after the first leg match. Besides, Luis Enrique could do rotations and give rest to some players like Piqué.
The second leg will be softer for sure. The first one ended 4-1 and FC Barcelona might not have problems to qualify for quarterfinals. Furthermore, both teams agree that tension between players should be reduced.
