Barcelona are set to welcome Real Sociedad in a Copa del Rey quarter-final clash at Camp Nou on Wednesday.

The Blaugrana are on a 11-game unbeaten run as the Spanish Super Cup champions, having secured a 3-0 win over Ceuta in the Copa del Rey round of 16, registered a 1-0 league victory over Getafe on Sunday.

On the other hand, Real Sociedad will be eyeing their 10th successive win in all competitions - apart from the midseason friendlies - as Imanol Alguacil's men beat Mallorca 1-0 to get here, and come into the tie on the back of a 2-0 league win against Rayo Vallecano over the weekend.

Barcelona team news & squad

Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres are back after serving their La Liga suspensions. Ansu Fati may lose his place to Lewandowski and given the strength of the opponent compared to facing Ceuta in the round of 16 last week, Xavi will be expected to field a more familiar XI.

Andreas Christensen is a doubt after appearing to have hurt his hamstring in the Getafe win on Sunday, with Ronald Araujo to provide cover in the former's absence.

Real Sociedad team news & squad

Alex Sola, Mikel Merino, Ander Guevara, Andoni Gorosabel, Jon Pacheco, Sadiq Umar, Martín Merquelanz and Mohamed-Ali Cho are all out injured.

Mikel Oyarzabal is tipped to fill in the void left by Merino who got injured in the round of 16 win over Mallorca, while Takefusa Kubo would be available after being left out for last weekend's tie against Rayo Vallecano, as the Japanese player has looked good in full training.

Martin Zubimendi, who is reportedly a Barcelona transfer target, returns from suspension.
