Real Madrid have failed to reach the Copa del Rey final in the last eight years. Carlo Ancelotti’s men have another daunting task to stop cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid tonight to reach the last four.
In the Round of 16 of this competition, Real Madrid came back from 2 goals down to win 3-2 against Villarreal. They beat Athletic Bilbao by 0-2 in their last outing in La Liga.
Elsewhere, Atletico Madrid are already out of the Champions League. They are 13 points behind the league leaders Barcelona in La Liga. Copa del Rey seems to be their only hope to win silverware this season.
