Of all the conversations that will occur after the first leg of the Copa del Rey El Clasico, none will be as important as the issue of advancement.
The second leg will take place at the Camp Nou in late February and the tie will be settled once and for all. For the club that advances, a place in the final will be booked.
After the first meeting between the two giants, it was proved that the rival clubs are nearly inseparable in terms of talent. There is no accurate way to predict what will happen in Barcelona.
But at this point La Blaugrana do hold the edge, albeit a very small edge. With the goal they scored in Madrid, the Catalans lead the tie due to away goals, but it is not crazy to expect that Real Madrid will score at the Camp.
So much will be up in the air entering the second leg but it promises to be a very exciting match. There is much that could happen between now and then, but El Clasico will be what it always has been.
The clubs have roughly one month to prepare to fight for a spot in the Copa del Rey final, and fans have just as long to debate about it themselves.
From this point on, every Cule and Madridista will be discussing what will happen next.
What were the most interesting topics from El Clasico? Who will advance to the final? Don’t forget to leave your thoughts and comments below.
