Real Madrid have traveled to Barcelona in the first of two legs of the Copa del Rey “El Clasico” semi-finals. Are our hearts and minds prepared to play these over-confident cules three times in just three and a half weeks? Today is just the beginning, but an important beginning.

We have all of our players at our disposal, save Vallejo (almost!), and our form has at least improved since the last El Clasico. Maybe some of you have seen these numbers floating around, and it is open to each individual how you would like to interpret, but have a look at this bit of interesting information.

Since the first El Clasico this season:

Real Madrid

20 Games

15 Wins

1 Draw

4 Losses

47 Goals Scored

20 Goals Allowed

46 Points

Barcelona

20 Games

14 Wins

3 Draws

3 Losses

49 Goals Scored

18 Goals Allowed

45 Points

This could mean absolutely nothing based on which teams we have played and so on, but look I’m just trying to be hopeful, okay?! Nothing wrong with that!

El Clasico’s are always highly emotional games so let’s be sure to remain respectful and calm, and have a good time. HALA MADRID!
