Copa del Rey

Teams: Real Madrid vs FC Barcelona

Date: 27 February

Venue: Santiago Bernabeu

Real welcome their bitter rivals in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final after the first leg finished 1-1 at Camp Nou.

Los Blancos have a clean bill of health and all players available but coach Santiago Solari opted to leave Isco, who recently struggled with a back problem but returned to team training this week, out of his squad.

Meanwhile, FC Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde dropped African Kevin-Prince Boateng from his squad, while Rafinha still misses out injured.

Messi didn’t start the first leg but returns to the starting XI tonight, with the Argentine being the all-time record scorer in E Clasico with 26 goals.

Real are slightly ahead in the overall El Clasico record, but have not won any of the last four Clasicos.
