In their second of an El Clasico trilogy over a four-week span, Real Madrid and Barcelona will need to deal with their own internal dramas as well as each other as they battle to break a 1-1 first leg deadlock, in a Copa del Rey second-leg showdown that is expected to effectively serve as the Spanish Cup final, according to Marca. But Real Madrid must cope with the discontent of their Welsh fullback Gareth Bale, while Barcelona battle a sluggish run of form which they hope they ended with a 4-2 victory over the weekend on the road against Sevilla in La Liga. The two teams will meet again on Saturday in the fourth and likely final El Clasico of the season, following Wednesday's Cup match, which will live stream from the Spanish capital.

In Real Madrid's 2-1 La Liga win over Levante on Sunday, Bale scored the winner on a penalty for Real, but followed the goal with a petulant display in which he shooed away teammates who tried to celebrate with him, as the BBC reported. But Coach Santiago Solari acted as if there was nothing amiss with his star, who has started on the bench in six of his last eight games.
"I'm very pleased. He can celebrate the goals however he likes," Solari shrugged after the win.
As for Barcelona, they can only hope that the 4-2 win over Sevilla has cured what ailed them over their previous five games, in which they scored only four goals, drawing four of those matches, per Soccerway.
With Valencia CF and Real Betis contesting the other Copa del Rey semifinal, most experts have a difficult time imagining that the winner of Wednesday's El Clasico will not capture the Spanish Cup rather easily. Valencia and Betis play their second leg match on Thursday, taking a 2-2 first-leg draw into the game, per Soccerway.
