Real Madrid will face defending champion Barcelona in the semi-final of the Copa del Rey. 

The draw made Friday means there will be back-to-back Clasicos, with the second leg due to take place on February 27 or 28, before Real host Barca in La Liga on March 2.

It will mark the first time the two sides have met since Barca thrashed Real 5-1 in what proved to be Julen Lopetegui's final match in charge of the Blancos.

The two giants of Spanish football have held a monopoly over the Copa in recent years, winning eight of the last 10 editions between them.

Meanwhile in the other semi-final, Real Betis will take on Valencia.
