In the Copa Del Rey Semifinals of 2013 we will have Real Madrid vs Barcelona first leg at Santiago Bernabue in the midweek and there is no bigger game than this one in world of club football as two of the spanish power houses go head to head in what will be a great game. We can expect to see the full strength sides from both sides as they try to outclass each other. Both the teams had a great win in the league over the midweek as Real Madrid defeated Getafe 4-1 with Ronaldo scoring a hattric while Barcelona hammered Osasuna with a 5-1 scoreline and guess what Messi got one better of Ronaldo and scored 4 in the game.
Going into this big we can see that Real Madrid have close the gap on Barcelona in terms of El Classico performences and Catalunya side dont enjoy playing against Real madrid as the last 5 games suggest, Real Madrid have won 2 of the last 5 matches while barcelona won just 1 and drawn 2 and with Messi and Ronaldo both fit and playing on top of their game we can see another goal fest here. Ronaldo have scored in every Elclassico in the last 8 matches which is a record and he will be favourite to be on the scoresheet against with Messi.
Real Madrid are almost out of the La Liga race as the gap between Real Madrid and barcelona is around 14 points and Barcelona are not expected to drop anymore points and Real Madrid will have to win all of their games and hope barcelona lost around 5, anyway league talk is over and we have this copa del rey tie which is a two legged affair and Real madrid would love to take some lead to Camp nou. Real Madrid have a very important few games coming up, first they have this Copa Del Rey and than some importnat league clashes while game of the year manchester United vs Real madrid in the Champions is also around the corner and one can think that this is a make or break fortnight form Real madrid. Madrid have picked their form at the right time, and they are unbeaten in the last 5 matches having scored 12 goals in the last 5 matches and also defeat Valencia 5-0 in the process. Barcelona on the other hand tasted their first defeat of the year in League in the hands of Real Sociedad and but got back on track with two great wins against Malaga and against Osasuna.
