Copa del Rey draw: FC Barcelona and Real Madrid learn El Clasico semi-final fate

Bitter rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona have been drawn together in the semifinals of the Copa del Rey, setting up the mouthwatering prospect of three El Clasico meetings in the space of four weeks.

Barcelona is trying to win a record fifth straight Copa del Rey title.

Newcastle agree deal for Atlanta United playmaker Miguel Almiron
Almiron scored 13 goals and provided 13 assists last season as Atlanta won the MLS Cup for the first time in their short history. The attacking midfielder looks set to offer us an extra edge going forward, and we can't wait to see him in Newcastle colours.

He was present in the 5-1 win against Real Madrid, the vital away draws at the Wanda Metropolitano against Atlético and at the Mestalla against Valencia (both 1-1), as well as in the well-worked victory over Sevilla at the Camp Nou (4-2).

"If we play Madrid in the semifinals, it's welcome and if we meet in the final, in case we both go through, it will be seen, but I do not care". "We are talking about two teams with a lot of resources, with extraordinary players, and we always expect very tight games".

The LaLiga giants now occupy third position in the league standings, 10 points behind table-toppers Barcelona.
