Barcelona meet Valencia again in semi- final

Barcelona were given a testing tie against Valencia in Friday's draw for the semi-finals of the King's Cup while Leganes were handed a marginally more comfortable tie against Sevilla after dumping Real Madrid out of the competition.

Barcelona hammered a hapless Valencia side then coached by Gary Neville 7-0 in a 2016 semi-final first leg, easing into the final 8-1 on aggregate, but the six-times Liga champions have been revitalised by coach Marcelino this season and should pose more difficulties for the Catalans than last time around.

Barcelona host Valencia in the first leg of the tie on either Jan. 31 or Feb. 1 with the second leg coming on Feb. 8 or 9, while Leganes will play the first leg against Sevilla at home.
