Real Madrid Copa Del Rey Fate To Be Decided By One Person

Copa del Rey: Barcelona Drawn Against Real Madrid
FC Barcelona and Real Madrid will meet in a two-legged semi-final in the Copa del Rey.

The two Spanish giants are separated by ten points in the La Liga table but will meet on two occasions as the winner will be guaranteed to get a place in the final, which is to be held at Real Betis' Benito Villamarin stadium.

It means that long time rival club will meet three times in a month, with a league clash set to be played on March 2nd, and that February will be an enormous month for Santiago Solari with a game against crosstown rivals Atletico Madrid, two legs of a Champions League knockout tie with Ajax and a Copa semi-final against their arch rivals Barcelona. 

Solari is under increasing pressure at Madrid after struggling to get positive results with his team. 

The Argentine was only hired as a temporary measure but then handed a three-year contract extension in November after he got positive results with the Spanish giants.
He is nonetheless expected to be replaced in the summer if the club's president, Florentino Perez can convince a top leading coach to take on the job at the Bernabeu.
