Real Madrid and Barcelona will face each other for the third team this season in the crunching semifinals of the Copa Del Rey this season. The Copa Del Rey draw on Monday yielded yet another action-packed semi-final. The first leg of the semi-final will take place in the last week of February. Fans will witness the second leg much later in April, due to Real Madrid’s Club World Cup commitments.
Barcelona were victorious over their arch-rivals once this season, during the Super Cup. Xavi’s side defeated Real Madrid 3-1, with a Gavi masterclass. However, Real Madrid won the first el Clásico this season, also a 3-1 victory in La Liga. Fans will be excited to see the Spanish giants clash yet again in Copa Del Rey.
While the actual kick-off will be a few weeks later, the fans have already started their battle on social media, each side claiming they will be victorious over their rivals. Barcelona crashed out of last year’s Copa Del Rey to Athletic Club in the round of 16. Interestingly, Real Madrid too fell victim to the Basque giants. The Galacticos last won the Copa Del Rey in 2014, after a spectacular goal from Gareth Bale in the final, against Barcelona.
