Real Madrid visit Barcelona’s Camp Nou hoping to earn some redemption after the embarrassing loss they suffered there the last time these two teams met. Los Blancos were coached by Julen Lopetegui back then and couldn’t do better than a 5-1 loss.
Still, this is only the first leg of the Copa del Rey Semifinals, so both sides could take on a cautious approach.
Real Madrid have a healthy roster for the first time in a while, with key players like Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos or Marco Asensio ready to play after spending many weeks on the sidelines. On the other hand, Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi are questionable for this game even though they were included in Ernesto Valverde’s squad list for the match.
Solari’s men have been performing better lately, with Karim Benzema leading the team and Luka Modric starting to play like a Ballon D’Or winner, so Madrid might have a chance to earn a good result here.
