Given Celta have performed well against the better sides in La Liga this season, there was no sense that this tie was over after the first leg.

Having comfortably booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Copa Del Rey, Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba stated that it was a "Luxury" to have Lionel Messi in the same team as the Catalonians hammered Celta Vigo for the tie to end 6-1 on aggregate.

The title holders had drawn the first leg 1-1 last week with a weakened squad, but named a stronger line-up for the home game to win 6-1 on aggregate.

Barca's onslaught continued with goal number four on 31 minutes, as Luis Suarez pounced on a sloppy backpass from Pione Sisto to hammer a first-time finish beyond the reach of Alvarez.

Alba had provided the assists for Messi's strikes in the 13th and 15th minutes, and the Barcelona star returned the favor by setting up the left back to score in the 28th.

In the 28th minute, Messi sent a curling pass from deep towards Alba who duly obliged and slid to send the ball at the back of the net.

Daniel Wass and Hugo Malla struggled to keep up with the pace of Jordi Alba and succumbed under pressure.

"We always look for each other to score goals and today we have done it twice".

The Copa del Rey 2017/18 round of 16 match between Celta and league leaders Barcelona will kick off at Camp Nou on Thursday 11 January at 21:30 CET.

Sevilla beat Cadiz 2-1 with goals from Wissam Ben Yedder and Joaquin Correa to advance 4-1 on aggregate.

Joaquin Correa's shot was saved but Wissam Ben Yedder finished off the rebound. "We are all suffering from the derby loss", Correa said.
