Pepe starts in defence for Real Madrid in tonight's Copa del Rey quarter-final second leg against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

The centre-back controversially avoided punishment when he stamped on the hand of Lionel Messi during Madrid's 2-1 first-leg defeat.

Kaka is given a rare starting berth for Los Blancos, while Cristiano Ronaldo is paired up front with Gonzalo Higuain.

Jose Pinto starts in goal for Barca, with Sergio Busquests selected in midfield. Pep Guardiola has also gone with the attacking pairing of Alexis Sanchez and Lionel Messi.

Barcelona:
Pinto; Abidal, Pique, Puyol, Alves; Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas; Sanchez, Messi

Real Madrid:
Casillas; Ramos, Pepe, Coentrao, Arbeloa; Kaka, Alonso, Diarra, Ozil; Ronaldo, Higuain
Subs: Adan, Carvalho, Marcelo, Benzema, Grandero, Albiol, Callejon
