Barcelona-Real Sociedad: No Ter Stegen, Mascherano back

With Jasper Cillessen Barça's Copa del Rey keeper, Luis Enrique has omitted regular custodian Marc-André ter Stegen for tonight's game.

With the exception of Marc-André ter Stegen, Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique has named his strongest possible squad for tonight's Copa del Rey quarter-final clash with Real Sociedad (21:15 CET).

Ter Stegen left out with Cillessen Copa number one

Jasper Cillessen is Barça's goalkeeper in the Copa, so regular custodian Ter Stegen is rested for the last-eight second leg at the Camp Nou.

Third-choice keeper Jordi Masip comes into Los Azulgranas' 18-man party in place of the 24-year-old Germany international.

Cillessen is Barça's main keeper in the Copa del Rey.

Mascherano back, 'Busi', Iniesta and Rafinha out

Barça are without injured midfielders Sergio Busquets, Andrés Iniesta and Rafinha Alcántara, but defender Javier Mascherano returns after missing Sunday's 4-0 LaLiga victory at Eibar through suspension.

The holders take a 1-0 lead into this evening's return in Catalonia, and you can follow the build-up and all the action with AS English's live coverage.

Barcelona squad to face Real Sociedad:

Cillessen, Masip, Piqué, Rakitic, Denis, Arda, Suárez, Messi, Neymar, Mascherano, Alcácer, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto, André Gomes, Umtiti, Mathieu, Digne, Aleix Vidal.
