Copa Del Rey: Barcelona To Face Atletico Madrid In Semis

Barcelona join Atletico Madrid, Alaves, and Real Madrid's conquerors, Celta Vigo, in the semis. That's because they've been drawn against each other in the semifinal.

The victor of the encounter will face either Alaves or Celta Vigo, with Real Madrid crashing out to Celta Vigo.

After a dominant 5-2 performance in the second leg against Real Sociedad, the defending cup champs Barcelona will face Diego Simeone and Atletico Madrid.

The first leg of the semifinal is scheduled for the 1 of February, with the second leg scheduled for February 8.

Westbrook says he is not on speaking terms with Durant
Thompson's excellent defense on Westbrook and Green's usual lock-down effort against everyone else sparked the Warriors' attack. It is safe to say that Westbrook did not take too kindly to the taunt by Pachulia as he added "I'm gonna get his ass back".

The Copa del Rey hasn't had a mega final since 2014 when Barcelona and Real Madrid met (although with the way Sevilla looks now, their playing Barca last year looks pretty good) and they won't get one this year.

Of all the teams Barcelona could have hoped for, Atletico Madrid are by far the toughest.

Barcelona, now third in the La Liga standings, is scheduled to meet Athletico Madrid in the semis.

Facebook temporarily blocked RT - and Moscow isn't happy
The organization that supposedly sent the copyright notice, Current Time TV , reportedly told RT that they did no such thing. A Facebook spokesperson said in a statement to VICE News that "all the features for this page owner have now been restored".

"It's vital we score at their place in the first leg". The Vicente Calderon has been mooted as a potential venue for the final, and with Atletico moving to another stadium next year, a Copa del Rey win at the storied stadium would be the ideal way to sign off.
