Barcelona take on Gary Neville’s Valencia in the Spanish Cup semi-final first-leg tie at the Camp Nou.

Turkish international star Arda Turan is set to start against Valencia after missing the last cup game against Athletic Bilbao with the flu.

Turan has since recovered and made a brief appearance against his former side Atletico Madrid in the 2-1 victory over the weekend.

The bearded winger has started every cup game he has been eligible for since making his debut in the 4-1 victory over Espanyol last month.

Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 28 games but were held to a draw the last time they took on Valencia.

Barca boss Luis Enrique will take charge of his 99th goal in charge of Barcelona and has won 78 of his 98 games including 14 of 15 in the Spanish Cup.
