Barcelona are Real Madrid's next two opponents as Los Blancos look to take on their most challenging week of the season so far, first meeting their bitter rivals in the Copa del Rey semi-finals before hosting them in LaLiga Santander.

Santiago Solari has turned things around in the capital and Dani Carvajal and Marco Asensio are looking forward to the game, while calling for their teammates to be ready for a crucial night on Wednesday.

"We know that this is a very important time for us," Asensio said to betting company Codere.

"Now is when we have to give everything in the competitions we're in.

"The team has to be united and to row as one to make sure the results come as they have in previous years.

"A testing week awaits Los Blancos with Barcelona visiting the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu twice and the forward has called on the team to be alert from the first minute.

"We have to be strong from the start," Asensio explained.

"With the support of our fans at home we will give our all to try to win the game from the first minute.

"The cup is the only trophy I haven't won with Madrid so I am especially excited.

"Dani Carvajal also looked ahead to the double header with Barcelona, first focusing on the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg."We feel good,' he said. 

"We have a good result [1-1 from the first leg] and we want to go to the final so we will give everything.

"It's a game that is watched all over the world. It's a special match and we hope the result is favourable for us."
