Villarreal up for Barcelona

Villarreal are capable of securing a positive result in tonight's King's Cup semi-final, first leg at Barcelona despite the huge gulf in resources between the La Liga rivals, coach Marcelino said.

"We consider it a very tough challenge but that's not to say we are not going there with the ambition of getting a positive result," Marcelino said.

"Barca are the clear favourites because we are taking on the strongest Barca so far this season."
