This Wednesday in the Spanish Copa Del Rey is schedule to play another El Clasico,a match between Real Madrid and Barcelona which is anticipated already for some time now.The first match will be played in Madrid,at Santiago Bernabeu.This will be the fourth El Clasico this season.
On the beginning of the season Real Madrid has won the Spanish Super Cup in two matches.First match was played in Barcelona which the Catalans have won 3-2 and in the second for Mourinho team was enough a 2-1 victory to lift the first trophy in the season.
As for the Spanish Liga BBVA,Real Madrid pulled a draw in Barcelona playing 2-2.
The first star of Galacticos,Cristiano Ronaldo is in the great form and of course,Real Madrid in that case wins easy.Pretty impressive was an away win against Valencia 0-5 and the last league ones,against Celta when Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat trick and Real Madrid has won that match with 4-0.With this hat trick Ronaldo joined a club 100 – player who have scored 100 goals for Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
As for the domestic competition Barcelona is on the first place having 15 points more than Real Madrid,so basically,Mourinho and his team have a realistically slim chances to win La Liga trophy again this season,what only mean they will switch the focus to the Champions league and Copa Del Rey competition.Exactly because of this,Mourinho in the last game rested few players but the first team definitely is going to welcome the Catalans,hoping to made a secure advantage ahead of the second game.
On the other hand team suffered a big blow with the injury of captain and goalkeeper Casillas,because of what from Sevilla was brought Diego Lopez.Still,Adan will be between goal posts for this match.Ramos,Coentrao and Di Maria are unavailable for this match.
Real Madrid probable lineup : Adan;Arbeloa, Albiol, Varane, Marcelo;Khedira, Alonso;Ozil, Modric, Ronaldo;Benzema
Barcelona suffered two blunders, first against Malaga in Copa Del Rey played 2-2 at Camp Nou,and then the second the Catalans wasted a 2-0 lead against Real Sociedad and manage to lose a match.But after it,they return to their usual way of winning.Messi keep scoring the goals,and that’s the most important thing ahead of match with their bitter rivals.In the last match against Osasuna which the Catalans have won 5-1 Lionel Messi scored 4 goals,and so responded greatly on Cristiano hat trick,and in the same time broke another record.Messi has scored in the 11 games in a row.
Against Osasuna,Iniesta,Pique and Jordi Alba were rested,and they will return for this match.Pinto will replace Victor Valdes as usual in the Cup competitions.
Barcelona probable lineup : Pinto – Diego Alves, Puyol, Pique, Jordi Alba – Busquets, Xavi, Fabregas – Iniesta, Messi, Pedro
Match Prediction: While we belive Barcelona will take this,maybe the most realistic is to take here the option both teams to score or over 2,5 goals.
