Bitter rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona are set to write the next chapter in their storied Clasico history as they meet in the opening leg of the Copa del Rey quarterfinals at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (4 p.m., GOLTV/

While Barcelona is looking for revenge in this tournament after being beaten by Madrid in last year's final, it is Madrid that is looking to try to even the overall score. Jose Mourinho's side has been beaten by Barcelona in the Spanish SuperCopa and on its own turf in the league play earlier this season and would love nothing more than to put Lionel Messi & Co. in an early hole heading into the return leg.

If you will be watching today's Clasico, please feel free to share any thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below. Enjoy the action.


  1. +1 Mourinho totally screwed up on this one, deserves full blame. Starting Carvalho, who has not played for months, and Altintop, who has hardly ever played. And then not starting Ozil or Kaka–or both together. And starting both Benzema and Higuan together did not work at all. I think Mourinho has lost his mind, is a total disgrace. Would love to see him get fired and replaced with Zidane.

    All that said, Barcelona has never looked better. Their defense is from another planet.

  2. Actually, Pepe had been trying all game to break legs, much worse than the tread. If fouls are given out based on a players preexisting physical condition, refs will need medical degrees.
