Satisfaction in the squad for the match against Real Madrid

Satisfaction in the Blaugrana dressing room for the result of the draw for the Copa del Rey semifinals. First, because they preferred to play against Real Madrid in a double game, second, because the second leg will be at the Camp Nou, third, because the semifinals will not be played until next month, allowing Ousmane Dembélé to recover, at least for sure with a view to the second leg, and fourth, and last, because it frees up the schedule for the coming weeks a bit, since Real Madrid will be playing the Club World Cup for the dates scheduled for the first leg, so after the match against Seville, Barcelona will have almost a week off, since they will not play games during the week and will be able to prepare well for the visit to Villarreal and the tie against Manchester United in the Premier League.

The players, who watched the draw live at the Ciutat Esportiva facilities, applauded as soon as they found out their rival. With the memory of the Spanish Super Cup still recent, the blaugrana were in favor of meeting their greatest rival, as long as the field factor favored them.

The coaches have also welcomed the crossover with Real Madrid, above all because it allows them to breathe a little in the calendar for the coming weeks. If they had touched any other rival, the team would have had a month of February without much respite, with three competitions at stake and with two games each week. The fact that Real Madrid cannot play the semifinals in February, as they have the Club World Cup, will make it easier for players to rest and recover.

It will also allow you to have Ousmane Dembélé ahead of the Cup semifinals. It must be remembered that the Frenchman was injured in the front leg of his left leg against Girona, with a prognosis of about four weeks out, so his presence for the first leg at the Bernabéu is not ruled out.
