Barcelona to face Sevilla in Copa del Rey quarterfinals
Barcelona has won the Spanish cup for the past four years. It routed Sevilla 5-0 in last year’s final, and also beat Sevilla 2-0 in the 2016 final.
The draw on Friday was held minutes after the Spanish football federation announced Barcelona would stay in after avoiding a scare involving its alleged use of an ineligible player.
The judge overseeing competition disputes for the federation ruled Levante’s complaint against Barcelona’s lineup from their round-of-16 tie was filed after the 48-hour deadline.
Sevilla will host the first leg next week, with the return leg in Camp Nou coming one week later.
