Barcelona vs Real Madrid will square off for the final time in the 2022/23 season in the second match of their Copa del Rey semifinal.
Xavi’s team won the first leg 1-0 away last month and only needs a draw at Camp Nou on Wednesday to progress to the final against Osasuna. Real Madrid has struggled domestically this season despite qualifying for the Champions League quarter-finals and will be desperate to keep their chances of Spanish silverware intact. El Clasico matches are rarely without drama, and this one appears set to deliver on all fronts.
