Real Madrid head to the Camp Nou for the first match in a triple header, over the next week or so, that could define their season.
Jose Mourinho’s charges first face Barcelona in the second leg of the pair’s Copa Del Rey semi-final tie before locking horns with their rivals again in La Liga and then heading to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in the Champions League.
The Spanish Cup remains Madrid’s best, some say only, chance of silverware domestically given Barca’s lead in the league but after the teams drew one-each in the first leg at the Bernabeu, Mourinho’s troops are BetVictor’s 15/8 outsiders to reach the final while the holders are 1/2 at bet365 to progress.
Real haven’t exactly convinced on the road this term so it’s hard to see them toppling the hosts, who are proving almost impossible to stop on their own patch.
Lionel Messi, of course, will attract the bulk of the first scorer cash at 11/4 via Stan James, Cristiano Ronaldo is a 9/2 shot with Coral at the other end but one of the best bets in what is always a fiery encounter, is Ladbrokes’ 27/20 for the referee to brandish a red card.
