Tonight, Barcelona travel to Valencia in what should be an attractive second-leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final.

Philippe Coutinho arrived at Barcelona with lofty expectations following his big-money move from Liverpool, and he delivered on his first significant stage for the Blaugrana.

The stop proved pivotal as, with eight minutes left, Suarez stole back possession and fed Rakitic, who fired home from just inside the box to safeguard the win.

Luis Suarez starts despite the risk of a suspension for the final if he were to receive a yellow card during the clash at Mestalla, where Barca take a 1-0 aggregate lead.

The Brazilian worldwide made his Barcelona debut against Espanyol last month in a 2-0 win at Camp Nou.

Valencia had centre-back Ezequiel Garay carried off and then saw Cillessen make an incredible save to deny Jose Gaya from point-blank range in the 74th minute.

The only slight setback for Barca was the sight of centre-back Gerard Pique coming off hurt late on, with Colombian global defender Yerry Mina coming on for his debut.
