15'  Another heart-stopping moment for Athletic Club but they clear again.

13'  Messi drops one over to Alba but he is offside, and in any case, Gorka rushes off his line to clear. Gorka will have the most kilometres covered by the end of this is he keeps it up.

12'  Iñaki does find Merino this time but he can't get a decent shot away as Rafinha saves. Athletic Club growing into this game.

11'  Iñaki now for Athletic Club as he strides forward. He looks for Merino but he can't get his pass to him. 

9'  Suarez is in behind again but Laporte makes it back and clears. Barcelona are really taking the game to Athletic Bilbao now. 

7'  Suarez in behind again but Gorka clears with a dodgy header. It falls to Messi but his first time effort is even dodgier than the header that preceded it.

6'  Suarez just abouyt  ahalf a yard offside. This game is wide open with Athletic Bilbao playing a dangerously high line. Barcelona, as they are wont to do, are doing the same.

4'  Neymar is in over the top and he tries to square it to Luis Suarez. Athletic Bilbao make it back and clear their lines.

1'  2'  Messi hauled down and that has really irked the BArcelona crowd. He migfht have been away there but Bñat pulls him down.

We are underway at the Camp Nou. 

Rakitic and Laporte having a good laugh together in the tunnel. Both players linked with Manchester City recently. 

Just five minutes away from the start now. Athletic Bilbao making their way out at the Camp Nou as they hold their very last tactical session. 

Both Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao showed support for Yeray after he was diagnosed with testicular cancer and operated on. 

We also can't forget Aduriz' elbow to the throat of Umtiti. This is what started most of the trouble.

And you can also check the Neymar penalty that infuriated not just Piqué but everyone on the Barcelona team. Even Iniesta, the mild-mannered man from Albacete, got into the referee's face.

Here is all the action from the last day out. There was plenty!

In case you missed this one, a Lionel Messi statue was decapitated in Argentina.

We are just over a half an hour away from kick-off. Remember the blad blood from the first leg? Gerard Piqué has had a complaint made about him by LaLiga referee's. Neymar was denied a clear penalty and Piqué said after the game that "we already know how this works" in relation to the way Barcelona are treated by referees.

 The team news is in. Luis Enrique does not opt for Andre Gomes or Ivan Rakitic and goes with Rafinha instead. Athletic Bilbao are forced into making some changes too with Iturraspe and Raul Garcia out due to suspension - both players were sent off in the first leg.

Welcome to our live coverage of Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao as Luis Enrique's men look to overturn a 2-1 deficit from thew first leg. We were spoiled with plenty of action in that first game - here's hoping it's the same again tonight!

Barcelona vs Athletic Club: possible line-ups

Iñaki Williams is a late doubt with the young striker picking up a bug which provoked a feverish condition. Valverde will leave it late before deciding if the 22 year old is apt to play and coach "Txingurri Valverde" will need the speed and versatility of Williams to accompany veteran marksman Aritz Aduriz in leading the line for Athletic.

How much will Athletic miss Raul Garcia this evening? The veteran midfielder received his marching orders in the final stages of the first leg and the lack of presence from Athletic's top scorer in the cup this season (3 goals) could be key at Camp Nou this evening.

Athletic Club

Jordi Alba too is set for a return at left back and once again the home crowd will look to the attacking fire-power of the MSN that has stuttered somewhat this season to secure the goals that see the Catalan side in Friday's draw for the last 8 which will be held at the Spanish FA at mid-day.

It's anticipated that Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic will return to the Barcelona starting eleven after being left out of Sunday's game at the newly named Estadio de la Ceramica in Villarreal where a sublime last minute free-kick by Lionel Messi salvaged a point for the current league champions.

Barcelona

Los Leones will look to emulate the heroics of the Spanish Super Cup game at Camp Nou in the Summer of 2015 when a 1-1 draw (following a 4-0 win for Athletic at San Mames) saw the Basque side lift their first silverware since 1984. A similar scoreline this evening would see problems mount for the Catalan side with Luis Enriques' men currently third in LaLiga.

The San Mames game sadly won't be remembered for a fine first half display from the home side but for the post match fall-out as the Catalan side felt they were hard-done by with various match officiating decisions during the discourse of the 90 minutes with central defender Pique claiming in his post match interview with TVE "We know how this works"

It's somewhat a shame that at this stage of the 2016/17 Copa del Rey we have to lose one of the competing sides in tonight's game who are both synonymous with the Spanish Cup. A 2-1 lead secured at San Mames last Thursday, gives Ernesto Valverde's side a slight advantage coming into the fixture tonight at Camp Nou.
