Arda Turan missed the second-leg quarter-final tie against Athletic Bilbao after coming down with the flu but played in first leg as well as both Last 16 games against Espanyol.

Turan is set to face Valencia for the first time this season when the two sides meet next week. The bearded winger has won the Copa del Rey with Atletico Madrid back in the 2012-13 season.

Barcelona and Valencia have face each other at the semi-final stage six times with the reigning La Liga champions progressing to the final on four occasions.
