Nadal had to defeat his compatriot David Ferrer to make it to the semi-final of the tournament. He won the match 6-4, 5-7, 6-2 to set up a clash with Djokovic on Saturday.

Nadal has won the competition for eight consecutive years starting 2005. In the last two years, the former World No 1 has failed to win the Monte-Carlo Masters and he will be hoping to win it this year.

A victory for either of them on Saturday will see them face the winner of the other semi-final clash between Tomas Berdych and Gael Monfils in this year's final of the Monte-Carlo Masters.
