Barcelona have been drawn against Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Copa dey Rey.

The draw was made on Monday and sees Xavi’s side take on their old rivals, while Athletic and Osasuna clash in the seond tie.

We have already seen two Clasico clashes already this season. Barcelona won the most recent one, 3-1 in the Super Cup, but Los Blancos won by the same scoreline in La Liga.

There is a bit of an issues with dates due to Real Madrid’s involvement in the Club World Cup. The first legs are set for the week of February 8, when Real Madrid will be away at the tournament, and the week after Barca are playing in the Europa League.

It seems that we may not see the first leg take place until March, which will be good news for Ousmane Dembele at least, with the Frenchman forced onto the sidelines after picking up an injury against Girona.
