  • 3 month ago

Barcelona have been handed a derby showdown with Espanyol in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.

On Thursday night, the defending champions ran out 5-0 winners over Celta Vigo to book their place in the last eight, and their reward for their triumph at Camp Nou is a clash with neighbours Espanyol, with the first leg being staged at the RCDE Stadium.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane will see the competition as a chance for silverware this season, and his side have been given a two-legged tie with Leganes, with the first leg taking place away from home.

Atletico Madrid will go head to to head with Sevilla, starting at the Wanda Metropolitano, while Valencia play Alaves.

The ties will take place during the weeks beginning January 17 and January 24.
