Barcelona vs Real Madrid is the huge game in Spain’s Copa Del Rey on Wednesday night. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are set to face off in one of the biggest games in world soccer. The game kicks off at 3 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live streaming via the link provided below.
Messi will be a key player for Barcelona in tonight’s match up; if he can continue his electric form then Real will have a huge job stopping him and the Barca team. Messi has now scored in 11 straight league games, and seems almost unstoppable. Real boss Jose Mourinho will be looking for his defense and midfield to crowd him and not give him any space. If they can lock him down and take him out of the game they will be a big step in taking this tie.
However, not many teams have kept Messi quiet and even if Real do manage to for most of today’s game it is likely that he will create some space at various points throughout this tie.
Real will be looking to their own playmaker, Cristiano Ronaldo, to push Barcelona into the back foot. Ronaldo is also one of the most prolific goal scorers in the world right now and over the past seasons. If he can put the Barca defense on the back foot and create some room then he is likely to create chances for himself and his teammates.
With Messi and Ronaldo facing off it is hard to think of the other players, but there is a host of the world’s best players featured in both teams, and this is sure to be a massive match up for fans from both sides, as well as neutrals tuning in across the world.
In Spain’s La Liga Madrid have struggled and they currently lie 15 points behind Barcelona in the league table. However, Barcelona lost their first match in domestic football this season just recently and Real will be hoping to create a further blip in their season by taking them down today.
Real are in fantastic form and claimed two massive wins recently - a superb 5-0 victory at Valencia before handing out a 4-0 defeat to Getafe. If they can continue that form today they will be hard to stop.
