Real Madrid 1 : Barcelona 1 It is a good result, but it could have been a lot better for Barcelona in the 1st leg of Copa del Rey.
1st Goal: Fabregas 49′
2nd goal: Varane 80′ (Real Madrid)
Barca were much better than Real Madrid last night, especially in the second half of the match. But, they could not score more goals; they missed a lot of chances. Pedro who was performing well in the last few matches missed a great chance. Xavi and Alba missed easy chances. In fact, Fabregas could have scored more goals. Messi was extremely quiet last night.
Real Madrid seemed rattled, though they could have scored few goals, especially Cristiano Ronaldo.
Turning point1st goal of Barcelona put Barcelona in the driving seat, but they failed to utilize it.
Next El Clasico will be played on 27th February 2013. Hope, Barca will fix their mistkaes in the second leg of the Copa del Rey. Chances are very high that Real Madrid will suffer a lot in the 2nd leg in th Camp Nou.
