A Copa Clásico awaits!

El Clásico clashes over the next month will come along like the proverbial London bus. You wait for what seems like forever for one to come along and then three come along at once.

If Madridistas were eagerly awaiting the chance to dish out some revenge on Barcelona when the sides meet at the Santiago Bernabéu on Saturday, March 2, there will be another chance to avenge the 5-1 reverse at the Camp You earlier this season after the sides were drawn together in the semi-final of the Copa del Rey.

That means three Clásico clashes all in the space of the next month.

Santiago Solari’s men will visit defending Copa del Rey champions Barcelona next Wednesday for the first leg of their semi-final clash before the Catalan club make the return journey to the Bernabéu on Wednesday, February 27.

Then, just three days later, Madrid will host Barça in LaLiga.

It makes for a mouthwatering month for Los Blancos, with the Clásico clashes coming alongside the Derbi clash with Atlético Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano next weekend and the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash with Ajax in Amsterdam.
