Barcelona vs Real Madrid live stream: match preview
Barcelona bring a 1-0 advantage to this Copa Del Rey semi-final second leg against Real Madrid tonight.
The old rivals met in Madrid a month ago for the first leg of this knockout tie, with a first-half own-goal from Real defender Éder Militão putting Barcelona in the driving seat. Despite restricting Xavi's side to just 36% possession – the lowest they'd had in 800 games – the closest the hosts came to scoring was through Karim Benzema, who thought he'd put his side ahead with a well-taken volley in the 12th minute, only for VAR to rule it out for offside. Rodrygo came close with a late long-range effort, but Barcelona held on to take their one-goal lead back to the Camp Nou.
Since then the pair have had a dry run for this second leg, with Barcelona also emerging victorious from a league tie two weeks later – but they left it late to snatch all three points. Another own-goal gave Real Madrid the lead this time, with Ronald Araujo deflecting a Vinícius Júnior cross into his own net after just nine minutes, but the hosts struck back through Sergi Roberto, before Franck Kessie pounced in stoppage time to secure a last-gasp win. Real Madrid trail Barcelona by 12 points in La Liga with just 11 games left to play, so there will be extra incentive here to stop them doing a domestic double.
Team news is in for this Clasico, and Xavi has made five changes to the Barcelona side that won 4-0 against Elche on Saturday, with Alba, Balde, Busquets, Kessie and Raphina all coming in. In the opposite dugout, Carlo Ancelotti has made three changes to his team, with Carvajal, Modric and Valverde coming in for Tchouameni, Vazquez and Asensio.
