[[DES_1]]Six members of Barça B will be in the travelling party for Thursday night’s cup second leg at Elche’s Martínez Valero stadium, kick-off at 10.00pm (CET), namely  Adama, Halilovic, Munir, Ié, Diagné and Gumbau, the latter in a first team squad for the first time.

Luis Enrique has opted not to include Bravo, Alba, Alves, Mascherano, Sergio, Iniesta, Messi, Neymar or Suárez, and they stay behind along with the injured Xavi and Vermaelen. That means that Piqué and Rakitic are the only ‘survivors’ from the game with Atlético.

FC Barcelona won the first leg 5-0, and provided they can defend that considerable lead, will be in the quarter finals to face the winners of Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid, who also meet on Thursday with the former defending a 2-0 lead.
