COPA DEL REY: Barcelona meets Real Madrid in Semi-final clash.
Inform Barcelona have being placed side by side against Real Madrid in the semifinals of the Copa Del Rey.
Spanish football are set to experience the clash of the Titans as both teams are ready to slug it out in a bid to get to the finals at Real Betis’ Benito Villamarin stadium.
Both teams would meet three times in a month, with a league clash set for March 2nd, and that February will be an enormous month for Santiago Solari with a game against crosstown rivals.
Solari is under increasing pressure at Madrid after struggling to get results or present a cohesive, attacking team.
The Argentine was only hired as a temporary measure but then handed a three-year contract extension in November.
He is nonetheless expected to be replaced in the summer if Florentino Perez, the club’s president, can convince a leading head coach to take on the job at the Bernabeu.
