Atletico Madrid will look to book its place in the semifinals of the Copa del Rey having avoided Real Madrid and Barcelona. Atletico drew Eibar for its quarterfinal on Friday and, like Round of 16 opponent Las Palmas, have already beaten the Basque side this season; Atleti notched a 2-0 win at Eibar on Jan. 7.

Atletico have played Eibar nine times in history and have only been beaten once, when both sides were operating in La Segunda Division in 2000-01 (a 2-1 win for Eibar at Ipurua).

The game before that in the same season was a draw, but since then los colchoneros have won seven on the trot. Since the two teams achieved top flight status, Atletico have never scored less than two goals when the teams played and have never allowed Eibar to score more than one.

The first leg will take place at the Vicente Calderon on Jan. 19, with the return leg set for Jan. 25.

The rest of the Copa del Rey draw:

Real Sociedad vs. Barcelona

Alcorcon vs. Alaves

Atletico Madrid vs. Eibar

Real Madrid vs. Celta Vigo
