Real Madrid and Barca have been kept apart in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey and will both face Basque sides. Real Madrid play Real Sociedad while Barca have to play Athletic Bilbao. ‘Los Blancos’ will be the happier though as they have a home tie.
Granada and Valencia face off at Los Carmenes while giantkillers Mirandes have to beat Villarreal to make the semi-finals of the competition. The team from Miranda de Ebro have already knocked out Coruxo, Celta Vigo and the big scalp of Sevilla to reach this stage.
Even though Villarreal were drawn first, Mirandes host the match as the team from the lower division always hosts. The four winners will progress to the two-legged semi-finals.
