Barcelona Face Valencia in Copa del Rey Semi-final

Barcelona Face Valencia in Copa del Rey Semi-final

After beating Espanyol 2-0, after losing the first leg of the quarter-final 1-0, Barcelona were eagerly awaiting to see who they`d face in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey.

Well wait no more, the draw has been held and Barcelona have been given a tricky two-legged semi-final against Valencia, who currently sit in third place in La Liga.

Valencia earned their place in the semi-finals by beating Alaves in a penalty shoot-out on Wednesday evening.

Barcelona have the better record in the competition having won the trophy in each of the last three seasons and have also reached the last four of the competition in each of the last eight years.

Valencia, on the other hand, have not reached the final since 2008 when they won the tournament.

The two sides met at this stage of the competition back in 2016 with Barcelona recording an emphatic 7-0 win in the first-leg, but we`re sure Valencia will put up a much tougher fight this time.

The other semi-final will be contested by Leganes, conquerors of Real Madrid in the last round and Sevilla.
