Braces from Thiago Alcantara, Cristian Tello, Isaac Cuenca and strikes from Pedro (12), Andres Iniesta and Xavi won it for Barca, who held just a 1-0 advantage from the first leg against the Segunda Division B opposition.
Meanwhile, Iniesta picked up an injury (torn muscle in his left thigh) and has been sidelined for two weeks.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are on course to meet in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey after the draw for the last 16 and latter rounds was made yesterday.
