Barcelona and arch-rivals Real Madrid have drawn together in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey. Both clubs are set to battle three times in two months.

The first leg of the tie will be played next week Wednesday at the Camp Nou before playing the return leg at the Santiago Bernabéu in the last week of February. The match will be played just days before the La Liga Clásico in Madrid on Saturday 2 March.

In the semi-final, Real Betis will slug it out with Valencia for a place in the final.

Barcelona overturned a first leg 2-0 deficit against Sevilla with a remarkable 6-1 trashing at the Camp Nou to progress to the last four.

The Galacticos saw off Girona in the previous round with home and away victories but will face sterner test against their biggest rival.

Barcelona have won the last three editions of the competition but Madrid will be looking to end run.
