The first match at the Ciutat de Valencia was kind to the Blaugrana, as they came away with a 1-4 victory. Levante now has to travel to the Camp Nou, where they will have to overcome that first leg defeat. Joaquin Caparros' squad have a difficult task ahead of them, especially playing away form home.
After their president stepped down, many expected Barcelona to struggle, but that has not been the case. The Catalans have won twice in a row, and a victory on Wednesday night could make it three wins in a matter of seven days.
Tata Martino will welcome back Alex Song, Martin Montoya, Carles Puyol and Andres Iniesta back into the squad, after they missed the match at the weekend against Malaga.
As for absences, the hosts will be without Xavi, Dani Alves, Sergio Busquets and Jean-Marie Dongou.
With a comfortable lead, and seeing as this match is a Copa del Rey fixture, Martino is going to make some changes in the squad.
Victor Valdes will likely make way for Jose Manuel Pinto on goal, while Martin Montoya could be inserted into the starting XI. Carles Puyol and Marc Bartra could line up side by side in the heart of the Catalan's back-four as well.
Alex Song and Sergi Roberto could start the match in the midfield. Ibrahim Afellay could also see his name in the starting XI, after the Dutch international returned from a long injury absence.
The visitors will be hopeful that they can welcome back Baba Diawara. The Senegalese forward has three goals this season, and after being sidelined with an injury, Caparros would really welcome him into the squad on Wednesday.
