One of the world’s most exciting derby’s continues this afternoon when Real Madrid visit Atletico Madrid in the Copa Del Rey Round of 16.

Atletico have had Real’s number so far this year, winning the Spanish Supercup over their city rivals and defeating Los Blancos in La Liga last September. Since that defeat, Real Madrid went on an impressive 22-game winning streak, only broken last Sunday against Valencia.

Fernando Torres can make his first appearance since officially returning home to Madrid, and was included in Atletico’s squad list.

Elsewhere, three other Copa Del Rey games are also going on this afternoon. David Moyes and Real Sociedad take on Villarreal, Valencia face Espanyol, and Almeria face Getafe. In France, Lille host relegation-threatened Evian TG.
