Real, Barelona to face-off in Copa del Rey semifinals

KOLKATA: 12-time champions Real Madrid will lock horns with holders and arch-rivals Barcelona in Copa del Rey semifinals.

Both the teams comfortably won their quarterfinals clash as Barcelona overcame a two-goal first-leg deficit to Sevilla 6-3 on aggregate, while Real registered a 7-3 aggregate victory over Girona.

Barcelona are aiming to win the competition for a fifth successive year while Real Madrid won it last back in 2013 under the then manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Friday’s draw meant that Barcelona and Real will face other three times in less than a month, as the pair also meet at the Santiago Bernabeu on March 2 in La Liga.

Barcelona are also on top of La Liga with 49 points from 21 matches while Real are placed at third with 39 points from as many matches.
