Real Madrid host Barcelona at the Bernabeu in the second leg of their crunch Copa del Rey semi-final clash.
On February 6, the sides drew 1-1 at Camp Nou, with Lucas Vazquez’s early opener cancelled out by Malcom around the hour mark.
Real Madrid have won three of their four subsequent matches while Barca have picked up victories in only two, yet it is the Catalans who are favourites to progress from this clash.
Can Los Blancos prove their critics wrong ahead of Saturday’s league meeting between the sides?

Real Madrid have few significant selection problems, though Isco, who is training again, has been left out of their squad and Marcos Llorente is injured.
Keylor Navas should start in goal, but the usual Copa del Rey turnover will not take place for such a big match.
Possible Real Madrid starting XI: Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Reguilon; Modric, Casemiro; Kroos, Bale, Benzema; Vinicius
|Goalkeepers||Ter Stegen, Cillessen, Pena|
|Defenders||Pique, Semedo, Lenglet, Alba, Roberto, Umtiti|
|Midfielders||Rakitic, Busquets, Coutinho, Arthur, Vidal, Alena|
|Forwards||L. Suarez, Dembele, Malcom, Messi|
Barcelona are still without Rafinha and Thomas Vermaelen, who have knee and calf problems respectively.
While there are doubts over Jasper Cillessen and Arthur, these are relatively minor and both have been named in the matchday squad. The keeper generally plays the Copa del Rey fixtures, but his injury may prevent him from doing so in this instance.
Possible Barcelona starting XI: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Pique, Umtiti, Alba; Roberto, Busquets, Rakitic; Messi, Suarez, Dembele
