On April 5, Camp Nou (Barcelona) will host the 1/2 final match of the Copa del Rey, in which Barcelona will compete with Real Madrid. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The team makes a rather controversial impression. On the one hand, there are enough troubles. First, there is a complicated financial situation, because of which it is impossible even to register a new contract with Gavi – to transfer him from the youth team to the main one (and the plans for newcomers in the summer are far from being mentioned). And “Negreira case” did not benefit the reputation of “more than a club". The European competitions ended very quickly – the team had finished not only with the Champions League, but also with the Europa League by February. At the same time, everything is great at the inner football arena. “Los Merengues” were beaten in the Super Cup, and, then, it ran away in a dozen points in the Primera, especially after a strong-willed 2-1 success in “El Clásico”. There remains only the Copa del Rey, where there is also a handicap after the voyage to Madrid.
The club is already discussing the possibility to replace the mentor – the management is asking the price either for Raul or for Pochettino. However, Carlo Ancelotti can still save the season, and at least leave his position “with a shield”. Only the international arena remains for the higher mentioned purpose, where, following the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup, he can take the main prize, or rather, defend it by means of winning the Champions League again. There, however, even in the battle with Liverpool at the 1/8 stage, the team at first conceded a couple of goals at the start, and only then gave Klopp and his English wards a kind of “master class”. At the same time, the inner arena season may de facto end on Wednesday if there is no victory in the struggle against “the Catalans”. Even optimists from the capital of Spain do not believe in the possibility of catching up with “the Culers” within the framework of the Primera.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
This is the fifth match between the “El Clásico” rivals. Real started well with a confident autumn victory, but, then, lost the matches in the Super Cup, the Copa del Rey and the Primera consistently.
The bookmakers believe that “the Blaugrana” will win again. Still, that will be the last important match at the inner arena for Real. Thus, we are waiting for the fight and goals, betting on “total: over 2.5” (odd: 1.97).
