Real Madrid and Barcelona will meet for the first time on Thursday night in the Copa del Rey semi-final at the Santiago Bernabeu.With a spot in the Copa del Rey final at stake on Thursday, El Clasicos have rarely been anything less than spectacles.
After defeating Atletico Madrid 3-1 in the quarterfinals at the end of January, Real Madrid advanced to the semifinals. Atletico took an early lead thanks to Alvaro Morata, but Rodrygo equalized in the 79th minute.
After the game went into extra time, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior scored goals to help Carlo Ancelotti’s team win. Interestingly, Los Blancos enter Thursday’s match having drawn 1-1 with the Rojiblancos in La Liga.

Barcelona Vs Real Madrid Prediction
El Clasico has lost some of its charm since the departures of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, with Barcelona also finding their feet again after some trouble in recent years.
Having said that, nine points separate league leaders Barcelona from second-placed Real Madrid, and it would be fair to say that Xavi’s side have not been playing at a high level recently. A win for Real Madrid here could potentially turn the tables on Barcelona.
Real Madrid, as ever, will focus more on the Champions League now. However, losing the league to a still-recovering Barcelona side would not be a good sign.
Prediction: Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

Barcelona Vs Real Madrid Odds
We say: Barcelona 1-1 Real Madrid
The fact that Barcelona did not have a midweek European fixture should hand them an advantage, but Real Madrid were impressive against Liverpool and will have been boosted by their progression in the tournament.
Ancelotti’s side really need to win on Sunday night, but it is tough to back Barcelona to lose at Camp Nou, and we are ultimately expecting a tight and nervy affair to finish with the points being shared.
