Athletic Club will play against Real Madrid in the Spanish Cup’s semifinals. This is the opinion of Jupp Heynckes: ‘The draw has given us a big rival, Real Madrid. At this time of the competition, only the best teams are qualified. I said that even Figueres worths a big respect for its impeccable trajectory in this competition. Real Madrid is the current leader of the League Championship. They have a big potential. For these two very intenses matches, we will need concentration, lucky and the support of our fans, to achieve eliminating Real Madrid. I trust in our chances and I consider that there are more chances to eliminate them in two matches than to win them in a final in the Santiago Bernabeu. I consider that we are able to achieve it. We are going to try to give a happiness to our fans’. Athletic will play against Real Madrid in the Spanish Cup’s semifinal. On January 23 at 20:15 hours (PPV), Athletic will play the first leg in San Mamés and on day 30, the second leg in Madrid.
