Copa Del Rey

Even though Real Madrid has recently won the Club World Cup from 22-23 season, real fans are currently fearing their chances of going trophyless this season. As the Royal Whites fell short against their arch rivals from catalunya in the first leg of Copa Del Rey semi finals, and they are also 7 points behind Barcelona in the league, there is a possibility that they will not win any trophies this season.

An Eder Militao blunder put Barcelona ahead of the Los Blancos in the Copa Del Rey Semifinal match. Despite playing well, Real Madrid lost to Barcelona in their own backyard, which makes a comeback even harder to achieve in the camp nou.

Karim Benzema had his goal ruled out, Araujo pocketing Vinicius almost for the entire match, and Frank Kessie turned into an Eder Militao own goal in the 26th minute of the game, Real Madrid saw their worst nightmare coming true in the ninety minutes in Bernabeu yesterday.

Barca Take Lead In Copa Del Rey Semifinals:

Dani Carvajal missed a simple chance by making it harder just before half time which could have made the scoreline different costed Real Madrid dearly in their Copa Del Rey semi finals.

The next leg will be hosted by Barcelona in the camp nou on 5th April. This will be Real Madrid’s final chance to break the good run of form by Barcelona so that they can re-enter the fight for the top spot of the league table, or to qualify for the finals of the tournament to go one-step closer to at least one trophy this season. This narrow win even though will console Barca fans after their defeat in their last match before the clasico, they cannot afford to get comfortable until the final whistle of the second leg.
