Well it was not a game that will be talked about fondly in years to come but it is a win that cements Barcelona's passage to the Copa del Rey quarter-finals, where they will meet Atletico Madrid. The winner of that game to win the whole thing?

That's all from us for today, thanks for your company and until next time, goodbye.

FULL-TIME

Elche 0-4 Barcelona -Adriano (0-9 agg)

That's it. We didn't quite reach double figures for the aggregate score but Barcelona will not care. A comfortable win.

GOAL

Elche 0-4 Barcelona -Adriano (0-9 agg)

A bit more gloss is added to the scoreline as defender Adriano powers in a header.

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

Marc-Andre ter Stegen is called into action for the first time in the game as the Barcelona goalkeeper gets down low to deny a shot he did not see until late, before then holding up the follow up effort. That's Elche's first two shots on target. It has been that kind of game.

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

Marc Bartra gets a little bit excited as he charges forward with the ball at his feet. The Barcelona defender can certainly hit a ball well, but not this time as he lashes an effort high into the stands.

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

The hosts are maybe trying to get a late consolation goal as they throw on attacking midfielder Faycal Fajr for the last 10 minutes, replacing defender Sergio Pelegrin.

SUBSTITUTION

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

This game is drifting towards its inevitable conclusion as we enter the closing stages. It has really been nothing more than a bit of match practice for both teams, it has certainly felt that way from watching.

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

Sweeper keeper! Lovely stuff from Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen as he mirrors his compatriot Manuel Neuer by coming off his line to chest down a long ball with one movement, and volley a pass with another. Classy.

Richard Cook: Saw Halilovic play for Croatia v Argentina at Upton Park, easily the best player on the night + has a bright future.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

Almost the perfect debut for young Alen Halilovic as the teenage midfielder, possibly with his first touch, bends a shot from the edge of the area and it strikes the base of the post. Elche, meanwhile, make another change as Rafa Galvez is replaced by defender Enzo Roco.

Fresh face for Barca

SUBSTITUTION

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

Barcelona make a couple of changes and give Croatian prospect Alen Halilovic his senior debut. The midfielder replaces Adama Traore while defender Douglas is on for Martin Montoya. For Elche, midfielder Adrian Gonzalez is on for Mario Pasalic.

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

Elche embark on a counter in numbers and they do well as Cristian Herrera gets beyond a defender on the left before attempting to cut the ball back into the middle of the area but Jeremy Mathieu is wise to it and the defender clears.

Tom Strafford: Sergi Roberto is an outstanding young player.

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

Sergi Roberto is having a superb game. He has been everywhere for Barcelona tonight both when they attack and defending when needed. The visitors are still in control.

Peter David Smith: Real Madrid comfortably beat Barcelona, Barcelona outplayed Atletico and Atletico have the measure of Madrid. Fascinating.

CLOSE!

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

Wonderful football from Barcelona and it should have ended in goal number four as Sergi Roberto flicks a delightful pass with the outside of his boot to Adama Traore, racing in on the right side of the area, but he fires just wide with just Herrera Yague to beat in the Elche goal.

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

Barcelona are straight on the front foot as Martin Montoya plays a clever one-two before shooting just wide. This could be a long 45 minutes for Elche.

It's all over in the Coppa Italia last 16 as Juventus cruise past Hellas Verona 6-1. Easy.

Back under way at Elche.

Torres all smiles

Real Madrid 2-2 Atletico Madrid - (2-4 agg)

A couple of words from Fernando Torres after he scored his first goals for Atletico Madrid earlier following his return to the club.

"The fact that we scored so early meant we could play the game we wanted," he says.

"I was smiling when I came off because of the win and for scoring my first two goals (since I returned to Spain) and also for doing it in a stadium where I hadn't managed it before."

We should have more reaction from the former Chelsea striker later on.

Barcelona

Dominant in possession, clinical in front of goal. Barcelona had just three shots on goal in the first half but made them count, the pick of their goals perhaps Jeremy Mathieu's free-kick. Will he fancy taking on Lionel Messi to be Barcelona's free-kick taker?

Maybe not just yet...

HALF-TIME

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - (0-8 agg)

You would not have realised Barcelona had made a number of changes, a very dominant first-half display.

Juvenus 6-1 Hellas Verona

Coppa Italia

Juventus are enjoying themselves against Hellas Verona, leading 6-1 in the Coppa Italia last 16.

Sebastian Giovinco, Roberto Pereyra, Guillermo Rodriguez, Paul Pogba, Alvaro Morata and Kingsley Coman were on target for the hosts, with Nene hitting Verona's consolation.

GOAL

Elche 0-3 Barcelona - Pedro pen (0-8 agg)

...Pedro steps up to take the penalty and confidently sweeps it into the back of the net, with the goalkeeper having dived the wrong way.

PENALTY TO BARCELONA

Elche 0-2 Barcelona - (0-7 agg)

Is it about to get worse for Elche? Munir El Haddadi is fouled in the area...

GOAL

Elche 0-2 Barcelona - Sergi Roberto (0-7 agg)

Barcelona

Oh it is another beauty for Barcelona and it is all too easy for the Spanish giants. Sergi Roberto receives the ball just outside the area, eyes a gap in the Elche defence and curls a peach of shot into the back of the net.

Elche 0-1 Barcelona (0-6 agg)

Adama Traore is a big lad but has some deceptive pace for his size and the 18-year-old is proving a handful for Elche. He turns a defender inside out, runs along the edge of the area and shoots just wide.

Elche 0-1 Barcelona (0-6 agg)

Barcelona look great going forward, mixing up slow and patient build-up play with fast, incisive passes but the final ball is letting them down. Sergi Roberto squeezes through two defenders and into the area but his cutback is over hit and Elche clear.

Elche 0-1 Barcelona (0-6 agg)

Cristian Herrera has some pace and he bursts forward for Elche with a team-mate in support. The Barcelona defence is wide open but Marc Bartra marshals Herrera superbly to block the forward's attempted cross.

Outsiders bring little in form

Elche 0-1 Barcelona (0-6 agg)

Pedro latches on to a ball over the top as Barcelona chase a quick second, he tries to pick out Sergi Roberto, but Herrera Yague dives on the ball to snuff out the chance.

GOAL

Elche 0-1 Barcelona - Jeremy Mathieu (0-6 agg)

Jeremy Mathieu

What a strike! Barcelona win a free-kick as Edu Albacar has not got the pace to go with Adama and resorts to fouling him, some 30 yards from goal. Barcelona defender Jeremy Mathieu steps up and rifles the free-kick into the back of the net.

Elche 0-0 Barcelona (0-5 agg)

Much better from Elche as Cristian Herrera tries to get on the end of a knockdown in the middle of the area, Barcelona hack the ball behind and the corner is cleared.

Elche 0-0 Barcelona (0-5 agg)

Elche are struggling to do little more than pump the ball forward as Barcelona continue to dominate without particularly threatening. The hefty scoreline on aggregate means this game has a bit of a peculiar atmosphere, very much like a pre-season friendly.

CLOSE!

Elche 0-0 Barcelona (0-5 agg)

Barcelona celebrate
BBC

Despite fielding a fringe side, Barcelona are well in control and they should be ahead as a cross is headed down into the area, Rafinha misses it but defender Adriano looks certain to fire in only to scuff wide.

Elche 0-0 Barcelona (0-5 agg)

It is a bright start by Barcelona, who have eight former academy players on show, 19-year-old forward Munir El Haddadi smacks a stinging effort at goal, but is flagged offside.

Kenneth Barr: How much longer will Simeone last at Atli before a "big club" snatches him? Great job as he is now the top dog in Madrid!

Isaac Manda: If there's a guy who really deserves a round of applause, it's Diego Simeone.
