El Clasico is back

One of the biggest games in club football returns, with the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final set to be another blockbuster fixture
El Clasico is back, with Barcelona playing host to Real Madrid in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final at Camp Nou.



The Catalans have had to work tremendously hard to get themselves into this position, notably staging a stunning second-leg comeback against Sevilla last week , while Madrid’s progress to this juncture has been rather more serene.

Having lost the first match of each of their last two ties, Barca will have to be on the mettle from the beginning on Wednesday or face their biggest challenge yet as they strive for their 31st triumph in the tournament.
