Real Madrid would visit Barcelona in this first of three games between Spain’s two biggest clubs. The two teams have had very different history in this competition and they would both be looking to get to the final here.
Barcelona have won the last 4 Copa del Rey trophy, just when we thought they might lose it in the last round they staged a comeback to beat Sevilla 6-1 at home having lost 2-0 in the first leg.
Real Madrid, on the other, hand have won just two Copa del Rey since 2010. With no hopes of winning the La Liga title, Santiago Solari’s men can do with this trophy at the end of the season.
Barcelona played out a 2-2 draw in their last game as Valencia came away from Camp Nou with a point. Real Madrid can learn from Los Che who took advantage of Barcelona and hit them on the break two of which resulted in goals.
Real Madrid visited Camp Nou earlier in the season and were hammered 5-1, the final game under Julen Lopetegui. Los Blancos were unbeaten on their previous 4 visits to Barcelona though. The most recent cup clasico was the 2014 Final at the Mestalla, won 2-1 by Real Madrid thanks to an 85th minute Gareth Bale goal.
