FC Barcelona, who were without Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, advanced to the next round of the Copa de Rey after thrashing Cultural Leonesa 4-1 on Wednesday night.
The Catalan giants took a slight advantage into the second leg following their 1-0 victory in the first leg.
Even without the services of Messi and Suarez, Ernesto Valverde's men looked like the dominant side from the onset.
The deadlock was eventually broken in the 18th minute thanks to a strike from Munir El Haddadi after some good work by Ivan Rakitic.
The lead was doubled on 26 minutes as Rakitic turned provider once again, this time picking Denis Suarez for the close-range finish.
There was enough time for Barca to grab a third goal before the break as Malcom got his name on the score-sheet after another assist from Rakitic.
The visitors did not sit back all game as they managed to pull a goal back 11 minutes into the second half thanks to a strike from Josep Sene.
However, any ideas of a comeback were put to bed in the 70th minute when Denis Suarez completed his brace to make it 4-1 on the night.
Valverde's men continued to dominate in the closing stages as they went in search for more goals, but it wasn't to be as the encounter ended 4-1 on the night and 5-1 on aggregate.
