Copa del Rey semifinal draw: teams, rules, format, conditions and how it works

The final of the Cartuja is already one step away. B.Barcelona, ​​Osasuna, Athletic and Real Madrid have managed to sneak into the semifinals of the Copa del Rey. It will be the first and only round to be played in a double game. The clashes will be known through a pure draw to be held next Monday. Osasuna seeks to make history and is not afraid of the giants, the three teams with the most cup titles will be in the drums. Between all of them there are 73 gimped.

Barcelona achieved the ticket for the semifinals by winning by the minimum against Real Sociedad; Osasuna had to resort to extra time to topple Sevilla just like Real Madrid to beat Atlético. Athletic beat Valencia 1-3. This leaves the possibility of a Clásico in the semifinals or another ‘classic’ cup match such as Barça-Athletic, the two teams with the most gimps in this competition.

These semifinals will also bring an added problem: The first leg of the semifinals of the Copa del Rey for Real Madrid cannot be played on the scheduled date. On February 8 they have to play the Club World Cup, which will force them to delay their clash until mid-late February (if there is no Clásico) or look for a date between March and April if the draw holds a Real Madrid-Barcelona match.

Standards and format

It will be next Monday, January 30, at 1:00 p.m. when the ceremony is held in which the semifinal crosses are known. The Luis Aragonés Hall of the Ciudad del Fútbol will be the stage where the balls are drawn. The first legs will be played in the field of the first and third ball drawn. As in the previous draw for the quarterfinals, there are no conditions when it comes to holding the matches. Everyone can face everyone.

The semifinals will be played roundtrip. The first confrontation will be on February 8 and they will meet for the second time on March 1. As in the last two rounds, video refereeing will also be present to fix any errors by the referees.
