The Copa del Rey is down to only four teams, and fans are set for some entertaining matchups in the next few weeks. Barcelona will be taking on Real Sociedad, but the real spectacle will be the two-legged affair that will see Real Madrid face off with city rivals Atletico Madrid.

In the last few meetings Atletico Madrid have been able to get the better results in direct competition, including winning the Copa del Rey last year. But you can count on Real Madrid looking to turn the tables and book their place in the final.

With these two giants set to battle it out, it is time to take a look at the tactical battles that will decide the tie. Both clubs boast incredible squads, but there are certain areas that will likely determine which Madrid-based club advances.
