Barcelona 5-0 Celta Vigo (6-1 aggregate): 5 talking points

Messi stars as Barca thrash Celta in the cup

But Coutinho, dressed in a black shirt dotted with white stars, was in the stands at the Camp Nou for the first.

Level at 1-1 after the first leg, the three-time defending champions were 4-0 up by half-time.

Earlier in the day Espanyol overturned a 2-1 first leg deficit against Levante to qualify 3-2 on aggregate thanks to a 2-0 win in Levante's Ciudad de Valencia Stadium.

Jordi Alba's bouncing ball across the edge of the box was sacked home by Lionel Messi with the same duo linking up again two minutes later as Messi swept the full back's cut back into the corner.

The tie petered out in the second half but French worldwide Ousmane Dembele showed why Barca shelled out £138m for him by dribbling past three defenders from the halfway line before being denied by a desperate tackle.

The Argentine then set up Alba with a sublime pass to slide home their third goal, before Luis Suarez scored from Celta defender's poor back-pass before the break.

"It's luxury to have Leo in the side, he's the best in history".

Speaking about the game, Valverde said, "The tie is slightly in our favour because of the away goal, but only slightly because Celta always score away from home".

Sevilla also qualified for the quarterfinals with a 4-1 aggregate win after beating Cadiz 2-1 thanks to goals from Wissam Ben Yedder and Joaquin Correa. Unzue made six changes to the team that drew 2-2 against Real Madrid in the weekend. The game virtually got over in the first 31 minutes.

Leganes, a modest club from the Madrid suburbs, reached the quarter-finals for the first time in their 89-year existence.

The Catalans are the favourites to go through the quarter finals after scoring an away goal in Balaidos but Valverde has refused to accept that tag.

Moroccan global Nabil El Zhar scored the crucial away goal for mid-table Leganes on the half-hour mark.
