MADRID — Barcelona will visit Athletic Bilbao in the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey, and Real Madrid will host Real Sociedad.

Barcelona has won a record 30 cup titles, followed by Bilbao with 24.

Also, defending champion Valencia will visit Granada, while Mirandes, the only second-division club left, will host Villarreal.

Mirandes, a small team from a northern town of about 35,000 people, upset Sevilla 3-1 to advance to the quarterfinals. Mirandes reached the semifinals in the 2011-12 edition while playing in the third division.

The matches will be played from Feb. 4-6.

The Copa del Rey is being played in single-elimination games this season, except in the semifinals.
