Holders Barcelona, Valencia and this year’s final hosts Real Betis are also in the draw, set to take place on Friday afternoon.

“We are four great teams in the semifinals.

“Both ties will be beautiful and difficult. We are very excited whoever we get, we will see tomorrow.

“If you want to win everything, you must be ready for anything. You need all players in the squad committed for that, and they are,” Solari said after the game.
