King's Cup semi-final return where FC Barcelona, winner in the first leg (1-0) receives Real Madrid at Camp Nou. Find out all the information about the Clasico.
Who from FC Barcelona or Real Madrid will join Osasuna in the Copa del Rey final? The two ogres of Spanish football face each other this Wednesday in the semi-final second leg when the Blaugrana won the first leg (1-0) in the capital. For this second confrontation, many absentees are to be deplored on the Catalan side: Frenkie De Jong, Pedri, Andreas Christensen and Ousmane Dembélé. While Barca are facing extra-sporting issues ("Negreira" scandal) at the moment, Xavi prefers to focus on El Clasico as he said in the press conference: "Extra-sporting matters don't come into the locker room. We talk about what we have to correct, how to position ourselves... We don't talk about Negreira (the former head of Spanish refereeing), Tebas (the president of the Spanish League), or UEFA... We just want to prove that we can beat them (Real Madrid) again."
On the Madrid side, it's time to grimace. After losing the last three Clasico, Real Madrid want to save their honor tonight and eliminate Barca. If Carlo Ancelotti is already preparing for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Chelsea, the merengue coach will not be able to count on Ferland Mendy, injured. In a press conference, the Italian technician returned to the difficulties in choosing eleven players to compose his team and in particular in the midfield position where the French Aurélien Tchouaméni and Eduardo Camavinga are in competition: "The most difficult thing is is to choose. Since always. The mentality of the footballer will not change, they all want to start the game. But it is very difficult to choose a starting XI, because obviously there are more than 11 players who deserve There are plenty of players here. Tchouaméni brings a lot defensively, passing, pressing... But Camavinga has important qualities, it's hard to press him. in his time, he played a few games as a left-back, a pivot, and Aurélien had a little more difficulty coming back from the World Cup. But now Aurélien is very well, he has returned to his best level."
