​Barcelona get Valencia as Leganes face Sevilla in Copa del Rey semis

Barcelona will take on Valencia in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey, with Real Madrid’s conquerors Leganes facing Sevilla.

Ernesto Valverde’s men boast an 11-point lead at the top of La Liga and stayed on course for a domestic double with a 2-0 victory against neighbours Espanyol on Thursday, with first-half goals from Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi at Camp Nou overturning a 1-0 deficit from the opening leg.

The story of the quarter-finals came a day earlier, with Madrid unable to make a 1-0 advantage from the initial game stick against Leganes.

Javier Eraso and Gabriel Pires scored either side of a Karim Benzema goal to hand Asier Garitano’s men a famous away-goals triumph.

That defeat has piled pressure on Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane, with his under-performing side enduring a forgettable campaign.
