Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has said that he is expecting a great contest against Real Madrid in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. The two arch rivals have been drawn against each other in the prestigious tournament after the Galacticos made their way to the semis by beating Girona while the Blaugrana overturned a two-goal deficit against Sevilla to decimate their opponents by 6-1 on their way to defending their title.
Speaking to the media ahead of their vital clash against Valencia in La Liga, the Barcelona gaffer said, “It will be a great tie between two great teams who are both fighting to win La Liga and the Champions League. All of this makes for an excellent spectacle for both the teams and the fans alike.”
He added, “It is bound to be a fascinating tie and it will be interesting to see who makes it through to the final. They were going through a poor run of form in the league but they have turned it around and we know that it will be a tough match.”
It was a complete washout for Los Blancos when the two sides met each other in La Liga earlier this season as the Blaugrana took their opponents to the sword and defeated them by 5-1 in their own backyard.
