Friday's draw means Barcelona and Real will face each other three times in less than a month, as the pair also meet at the Bernabeu on 2 March in La Liga.
With his club having set an unprecedented record of clinching three consecutive UEFA Champions League titles, Real coach Solari shared his thoughts on Guardiola's sentiments.

The final will be on May 25 at Benito Villamarin Stadium in Seville, a 61,000-capacity venue that is home to Betis.
