Real Madrid 1 : Barcelona 1
Not a bad result for Barcelona as they have one away goal advantage.
This El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona is a HUGE match for both of them. No doubt Mourinho, the special one, will be trying his best to get a good result in the first leg of Copa del Rey semi final tonight against Barcelona—the best team in the world. On the other hand, Jordi Roura has to prove that he can do the temporary job of Tito Vilanova perfectly.

Unfortunately, Barca lost the Spanish Super Cup title when they meet Real Madrid last time. Barca had a lead, but failed to utilize it in the Santiago Barnabeu. Victor Valdes made a TERRIBLE mistake. So, this El Clasico will be a very important contest for Barcelona: the leader of Spanish La Liga. Another important reason is that Barcelona lost this Copa del Rey title to Real Madrid last year. The title was decided by a late goal of Cristiano Ronaldo in the extended time.
On the other hand, Real Madrid will be desperately trying their best to get a title this year as La Liga title is almost impossible for them unless Barcelona do something IMPOSSIBLE. In fact, Champions League could be more difficult for them as the opponent is Manchester United. So, Copa del Rey will be a major focus for Real Madrid.
Lionel Messi must be expecting to play a good game tonight. We all know that this Argentine International has been in INCREDIBLE form these days. Messi can’t stop breaking records. 4 goals in the last match against Osasuna was another master piece from this iconic football artist.
Cristiano Ronaldo is also in good form. His hattrick proves everything. CR7 must be trying to score goals tonight to give his team a lead in the 1st leg of Copa del Rey. This superstar has been doing well the El Clasicos finally.
Surely, all eyes will be glued to the Santiago Barnabeu right from the kick off tonight. Both Barcelona and Real Madrid will be crazy to get a lead in the 1st leg of the semi final. Chances are high that you will see many yellow cards, and at least one red card is not an unexpected object today. It could be a nasty night. What is your prediction? I am daring to predict! Visca el Barca
