Barcelona face Neville's Valencia in Cup semis
29 January 2016, 18:44
Madrid - Holders Barcelona will meet Gary Neville's Valencia in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey, whilst Sevilla face Celta Vigo in the other semi-final.
Barca and Sevilla will be at home in the first legs with the ties to take place on February 3 and 10.
Neville is undefeated in five Cup matches since taking charge last month, but is yet to win in seven games in La Liga.
By contrast, Barca are undefeated in 25 games and remain on course to match their treble of La Liga, Champions League and Copa del Rey from last season.
"It is a difficult tie and we need to play well to get to the final," said Barca captain Andres Iniesta.
"Any of the three of the potential opponents would have made things difficult for us. It will be a tough tie against Valencia," added Barca boss Luis Enrique.
However, Valencia midfielder Javi Fuego is hoping home advantage in the second leg will be enough to see Valencia into their first final for eight years.
"They are the team most in form at the moment. We won't discover anything new about Barcelona now," he said.
"This is a competition in which we have a lot invested. The return leg at home in Mestalla could be a definitive factor for us."
