Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde was one of the first to speak about the Copa del Rey draw on Friday. He appeared on Barca TV, to have his say about his side being paired with Valencia.
Valverde said "It's a tricky semi-final which we've got to play to reach the final. We'll take it on with hope, but Valencia have shown they are a tricky side. Valencia, for how they've done this season, makes it a bit trickier than if we faced either of the other two sides."
Barcelona receive Valencia at Camp Nou on Thursday February 1, with the away game the following week.
