Barcelona vs Levante Eager to reach quarter-final stage
Ernesto Valverde is expected to put out a strong side in their last 16 second leg fixture against Levante, rather than rotate, as Barcelona look to overcome the 2-1 result from the first leg.
Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez will return to the starting line-up as the Catalans put an emphasis on firepower as they look to secure qualification.
The Uruguayan has scored 14 goals in LaLiga Santander this season, while Messi has already netted 23 in all competitions.
If the Brazilian remains in the line-up, Valverde will have to decide who he wants to drop out of Arturo Vidal, Arthur Melo and Ousmane Dembele.
Levante have never achieved a victory at Camp Nou, having conceded an average of more than four goals per game with a total of 61 goals in 15 encounters.
On the other hand, the Catalans have managed to qualify from every knockout round since the semi-final in 2013, when they were knocked out by Real Madrid.
They have advanced on 21 successive occasions and Thursday's game will not be the first time they have had to overcome a deficit from the first leg, having previously managed to do so against Athletic Club in 2016/17 and Espanyol last season.
