    • FC Barcelona
    • Real Madrid
    • 90+3' FULL TIME: Real Madrid have comprehensively dismantled Barcelona, and are deservedly through to the Copa del Rey final. Barcelona outthought, and need to get themselves together quickly, because the two sides will do battle again in Madrid in La Liga on Saturday.
    • 90+2' Jose Mourinho appears to have slipped into the dressing room already. The players just counting down the last seconds of the match before the celebrations can begin.
    • 90+1' Atletico Madrid or Sevilla await Real in the final. Clearly the men in white will go into that one as favourites.
    • 90' Three added minutes to play.
    • 89' GOAL! BARCELONA HAVE ONE BACK! JORDI ALBA ROUNDS OFF A SUPER MOVE! It came from a delightful dinked pass from Iniesta, and was tucked away on the volley by Alba into the far corner. Meagre consolation, but lovely goal.
    • 88' Messi fouled by Ramos, who had his arm around the Argentine's neck there.
    • 87' The only time Barcelona have been beaten more heavily at the Nou Camp by Real was in a 5-1 defeat in 1963. This is a huge blow Real have struck.
    • 86' This game just petering out. Real need to be careful not to pick up more bookings now.
    • 85' Pepe and Busquets attack each other in a petty squabble deep in the Barcelona half. Trust those two to be at the centre of a scuffle. Players from both sides join in before they are separated.
    • 84' REAL CHANGE: Essien replaces Xabi Alonso.
    • 83' RONALDO CLOSE! Another counter attack, a powerful low shot at the far post, which this time Pinto smothers.
    • 82' Barcelona have plenty to do to sort themselves out ahead of a Clasico at the Bernabeu on Saturday. It will take something to perk them up.
    • 81' Cristiano Ronaldo nets his 2nd goal tonight and can yet become the 1st Real Madrid player since Zamorano in Jan 1995 to score a hat-trick (Infostrada)
    • 80' Jordi Roura cutting a forlorn figure on the Barcelona bench. Who says Barcelona don't need a coach?
    • 79' REAL MADRID CHANGE: Ozil off, Pepe on.
    • 78' TELLO CLOSE! No - offside. Iniesta with the through ball, Tello slipping in on the left and shooting for the far corner. Says something about the mood Real are in that Lopez made the save anyhow.
    • 77' Barcelona just worked backwards, one pass by one pass. Barcelona didn't lose possession, but the ball is back with Pinto.
    • 76' Long-ranger from Alves takes a deflection and goes out for a corner.
    • 75' Dani Alves cuts out another long ball and gets Barcelona back on the move. Do the hosts still believe they can turn this around?
    • 74' The cameras cut to a flare being lit high up in the Nou Camp. Are the home fans trying to make their own fun?
    • 73' BARCELONA CHANGE: Thiago replaces Xavi.
    • 72' Messi goes down trying to wriggle into the box. No room there for him. Real break forward again.
    • 71' BARCELONA CHANGE: Tello replaces Pedro.
    • 70' REAL CHANGE: Callejon on, Higuan off.
    • 69' Messi cannot be Barcelona's savious in every game - but he's been ordinary tonight, and he was ordinary in the Champions League game at AC Milan as well. Suddenly Barcelona's all-conquering season has taken a major hit.
    • 68' GOAL! VARANE MAKES IT THREE! HE'S SCORED IN BOTH LEGS! Easy stuff - super corner frmo Ozil, he leaps well above everyone to bury it in the corner. That, surely, is game over.
    • 67' Terrific challenge from Pique on Ozil on the stretch as the German bears down on another through ball. But Ozil still has the ball, albeit in a worse position close to the touchline.
    • 66' Just two shots on target in 65 minutes for Barcelona - they're not penetrating the Real Madrid defence with any regularity. And time is running out.
    • 65' Higuain gets in on the act with the next teasing through ball - Ozil for once cannot match it with the final pass to Ronaldo.
    • 64' Coentrao went shoulder-to-shoulder with Pedro, but didn't do anything untoward in the challenge.
    • 63' PEDRO GOES DOWN AGAIN! NO PENALTY! Again, he was looking for it, and he might have got his shot away had he concentrated on what was in front of him. Error from the Real Madrid back four to cede possession in a dangerous area.
    • 62' Pinto has to leap out to deny Ronaldo the chance of latching on to a long ball from Di Maria. Another barn-storming pass. Manchester United will be fearful of this display.
    • 61' Lopez alert to a chipped through ball, and just as Messi gets towards it, the Real keeper heads it out of his path and safe.
    • 60' Pedro's attempted cross too ambitious for Villa. Barcelona still dominating the possession.
    • 59' Here's the change: David Villa on, Fabregas off. And the crowd applaud that change.
    • 58' Barcelona have been stung again. The counter-attacks are just killing them, and now the equation is this: Score three times, or go out. Real in total control.
    • 57' GOAL! RONALDO SCORES! Another fantastic counter, Di Maria latching on to a super first-time pass from Khedira. He turns Puyol inside-out, and although his shot is blocked, but the rebound comes to Ronaldo, who does the rest.
    • 57' INIESTA CLOSE! He fired a goalbound effort from around the penalty spot and Ramos did well to block it.
    • 56' Corner for Barcelona now as the play continues to see-saw from one side to the other.
    • 55' Jordi Roura in deep communication with his fellow coaches on the bench as Ronaldo wins the visitors a corner.
    • 54' Barcelona substitutes warming up - David Villa would perhaps be the most obvious switch they could make, with a more orthodox striker leading the line.
    • 53' Iniesta tries to dink a pass into Fabregas' path as he runs a diagonal into the box. Not quite.
    • 52' First time that Real looked a little scrappy and vulnerable there. And Barcelona can do that to any side when they get it right.
    • 51' BARCA CLOSE! Several chances there as they finally find a way through. Iniesta has a shy on the left, then Busquets with a shot from the edge of the area that Lopez almost parries into Fabregas' path.
    • 50' COENTRAO CLOSE! But that was all about Xabi Alonso's through ball - it left everyone except the Real left-back motionless, and the shot was drilled low at Pinto, who can stop that one.
    • 49' "Cristiano will score again no chance for Barca," reckons Bijay on Twitter. And that's the risk for Barcelona. If Real Madrid score again, the home side will need THREE goals to advance.
    • 48' Ronaldo, running down the left, looks to have forced a corner - but Dani Alves has done well, and his block rebounds off Ronaldo and out for a goal kick instead.
    • 47' Both Barcelona centre-backs on bookings - for a side trying to cope with counter-attacks that's not a good position to be in. But for the moment it's Barcelona on the ball and probing.
    • 46' Real Madrid kick off the second half!
    • - The Barcelona players are out well before Real Madrid's eleven. Few whistles from the Nou Camp crowd about that, but subdued when the men in white appear.
    • - And remember, if you're not already, you can follow @EurosportCom_En for the latest news and updates from the sporting world. Here's the link
    • - Scott Donnelly has a prediction on Twitter: "Barca will win 3-2 but Madrid doing well hitting Barca on break" - is he right? We're about to find out.
    • - What did you make of the first half, and what happens next? Tweet me @Mark_Eurosport. Follow!
    • 45+2' HALF TIME: Alba still down as the whistle sounds. Barcelona dominate the possession, but dominated by Real where it counts, including on the scoresheet. There's still plenty of time for it all to change again. Great half of football.
    • 45+1' Alba has gone to ground and Ramos has taken exception to it. It's hard to see what has hurt him, but he's clutching his knee.
    • 45' Ronaldo not tackled and able to keep play alive. Real Madrid swarming on the edge othe area in the final minute of the half. One more to play.
    • 44' Barcelona penalised in the penalty area, and Pique has to be careful because he blocked his opposite number and he is already on a yellow card.
    • 43' Corner for Barcelona as they push for an equaliser on the stroke of half time.
    • 42' Ronaldo and Pedro the latest to tangle, with the Real man penalised for a high boot as he went for the ball.
    • 41' RAMOS CLOSE! The set piece came in and the Real captain was desperately close to getting the touch required at the far post to deflect it past Pinto.
    • 40' Puyol cautioned for a foul, while Iniesta was lucky not to be in the book as well after a clumsy one on Arbeloa.
    • 39' SO CLOSE! Messi slides the ball under the jumping wall, but a foot or two wide of goal. The side netting rippled as it curled back in, and half the ground throught the scores were level.
    • 38' Taking some time to get the free kick ready, but the wall is up and it looks like we're finally good to go.
    • 37' Scintillating run from Iniesta, fouled by Arbeloa. The referee plays advantage, but recalls it when Messi cannot get a shot away. Yellow for Arbeloa, free-kick at an appetising range for Messi.
    • 36' Messi misses a great chance to play Fabregas through for a one-on-one against the goalkeeper! Sort of thing you'd expect him to nail, but it's not quite happened for him so far.
    • 35' As you can see from the comments before the game, Jordi Roura not a fan of this referee. And he's not likely to have changed his mind so far.
    • 34' PEDRO GOES DOWN! NO PENALTY! Well, that looked closer to me on first inspection - Alonso certainly right with him as he went down - but it looks like, on the replay, Pedro started to tumble before contact with Alonso.
    • 33' Dani Alves whips in a cross from the right - that's more like it from the home side, but on this occasion Diego Lopez is alert and gets out to make the catch.
    • 32' Cristiano Ronaldo beats Messi to become the first player to score in 6 successive Clásicos away from home. (Infostrada)
    • 31' RONALDO! Given the ball by Ozil, he fires a shot which is blocked, but once again he had room. Real working on the break only, but working superbly. They look a threat every time.
    • 30' Possession 68-32% in Barcelona's favour. But that's proof if proof were needed that possession isn't everything.
    • 29' A sigh of frustration from the Nou Camp crowd as Fabregas fails to steer the ball on. Barcelona started brightly, but since Real scored the game has slipped out of their grasp.
    • 28' Higuain buries the ball in the corner of the goal, but not before being called offside. He had strayed too early before Ozil played the pass.
    • 27' Busquets dallies on a cross but he does manage to pick out Messi on the edge of the area. He's swamped and has to lay the ball back, and the move ends with Iniesta shooting wide from the left.
    • 26' Alves puts a tackle in on Ronaldo, and only just in the nick of time. Barcelona have to be careful here - if Real Madrid score again, then with the away goals rule Barcelona would need three goals to win.
    • 25' Alba finds Fabregas with a through ball and much to Real's surprise he's onside. The cross cannot pick out Messi, and Ramos clears.
    • 24' Higuain goes looking for Ronaldo, but that was the wrong pass on this occasion. Ferguson, watching on, will have been impressed by Real so far.
    • 23' Arbeloa catches Fabregas. Never any shortage of fouls in this encounter, and there have been plenty of ferocious ones so far.
    • 22' Di Maria sprays a pass out to Ronaldo on the left. He drifts inside and gets a shot away on the right foot. Skims into Pinto's arms on the bounce.
    • 21' Ronaldo afforded the space to shoot from distance, and once again he's whacked this too high again. Barcelona, who are conceding goals even though they're dominating La Liga, cannot allow him that kind of space, because sooner or later, he'll bury one.
    • 20' Di Maria in some pain after a challenge on the right - it's the visitors who are in control at the moment, and Barcelona giving the fouls away.
    • 19' Not this time for Ronaldo. He wallops it over the bar by some distance. Still, advantage Ronaldo in this Clasico duel so far.
    • 18' Dani Alves brings down Ronaldo on the charge once more. Free kick from distance for the Portuguese. I wouldn't back him from here, best part of 40 yards out, but you never know...
    • 17' Super passing move from Barcelona, culmintating in Messi trying to slip Pedro through on goal. Just a touch overhit this time.
    • 16' Replays show it more clearly, Fabregas went down softly under pressure from Di Maria. He was certainly looking for the penalty, and the referee was right not to give it.
    • 15' FABREGAS GOES DOWN IN THE BOX! But he wasn't fouled. Goodness me - the noise at the Nou Camp has gone up a notch further.
    • 14' Barcelona looked more dangerous at the start of the match, but they were caught out on the break when Ronaldo was left one-on-one. Can they respond?
    • 13' GOAL! RONALDO SCORES FROM THE SPOT! Low to the left, Pinto guesses the wrong way. Real lead the tie 2-1.
    • 12' PENALTY TO REAL MADRID! Pique turned by Ronaldo after a stepover or two, and hacks him to the ground. He's furious, but he caught him without any doubt. Booking for Pique.
    • 11' Dani Alves in space on the right, floats a ball to the far side where Messi lurks. Di Maria flattens him on the edge of the area. Reckless.
    • 10' Superb long throw from Pinto to Iniesta on halfway. Khedira makes a meal of challenging the Spaniard, winning Barcelona a useful set piece.
    • 9' In attendance at the Nou Camp tonight is Sir Alex Ferguson. His Manchester United host Real in the second leg of their Champions League clash next week.
    • 8' Fabregas tries a low drive, drilled straight at Lopez from distance. Real surge upfield, to jeers from the home fans.
    • 7' Xabi Alonso gives the ball away - Iniesta on hand to get another Barcelona move underway.
    • 6' Nice move from Real, made by Xabi Alonso's teasing through ball. Ronaldo lays it back to Higuain, but when the striker returns the pass Ronaldo has strayed offside.
    • 5' Puyol knocks Higuain off a high ball and gives away a foul just inside the Barcelona half. Real pause for a moment to get the bodies forward.
    • 4' Puyol very close to getting on the end of Xavi's delicious curling cross. Real forced deep on to the back foot for the moment.
    • 3' Pedro and Coentrao matched up again, this time the Portuguese heading a cross out for a throw by the corner flag. Moments later, he wins a very useful set piece on the right.
    • 2' MESSI CLOSE! Pedro quite brilliant to set it up, turning Coentrao one way and then the other before centring for Messi. He turns and flashes a right-footed effort low across goal from a tight angle. Barcelona showing their attacking intent early.
    • 1' CLOSE! Iniesta with a run down the left, a dart inside and a shot from 25 yards. That wasn't bad, but it did sail a few yards wide of the post.
    • 1' Away we go! Barcelona with kick-off. Both sides in their home kits.
    • 20:00 The players are out on the pitch - and after a moment's reflection they take their place for kick-off.
    • 19:59 Barca 7/10, draw 13/5, Real Madrid 4/1
    • 19:58 Saturday's 2-1 La Liga win at home to Sevilla on Saturday was the 11th match in a row in all competitions in which Barca failed to keep a clean sheet.
    • 19:57 Tuesday's second leg will be the 224th meeting between the great rivals in all competitions. Barca have won 87 to Real's 88 and there have been 48 draws.
    • 19:56 Before the first leg, Cristiano Ronaldo had scored at least once in his last six "Clasicos" and headed the goal that gave Real a 1-0 victory over their arch rivals in the 2011 Copa final.
    • 19:55 Where are my manners? I'm Mark Patterson, and I'll be taking you through this game. You can find me on Twitter @Mark_Eurosport - FOLLOW!
    • 19:50 If this isn't enough Clasico for you, remember that the two sides could play extra-time tonight if the score is 1-1 after 90 minutes. And even if they don't, they will play again in La Liga on Saturday!
    • 19:45 Both sides have in fact made seven changes from the line-ups they fielded in La Liga at the weekend. Real Madrid scraped a victory at Deportivo on Saturday, but only Higuain, Di Maria, Lopez and Arbeloa started that one.
    • 19:40 Strong line-ups from both sides, as expected. Barca have fielded their best side, albeit with Pinto in goal instead of Valdes, who tends to sit out the Copa del Rey.
    • 19:35 Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid coach): "I prefer to stick to the lessons we have received in the past from Barcelona. Lessons of sportsmanship, of how to act in football. I do not speak about referees, nor crowd around them, nor look for yellow cards for opponents, nor conceal things. And, of course, lessons in how to play football, which they do very well. We must try, humbly, to follow that line. This is an isolated game, with nothing to do with past ones. Anyway, that was a long time ago."
    • 19:30 Jordi Roura (Barca assistant coach): “The referee (Alberto Undiano) is who he is and we do are not going assess the officials and whether they are good or bad. But there is evidence that our numbers with him are worse than they are with others, much lower. One fact is that the only league game we have lost is with this referee, and we have in memory the permissiveness that was the Copa del Rey final. It is a statistical issue."
    • 19:25 REAL MADRID: López, Varane, Ramos, Coentrão, Khedira, Ronaldo, Özil, Xabi Alonso, Arbeloa, Higuaín, Di María - Subs - Adán, Pepe, Kaká, Benzema, Essien, Modric, Callejón
    • 19:20 BARCELONA: Pinto, Alves, Piqué, Puyol, Jordi Alba, Sergio, Xavi, Fabregas, Pedro, Iniesta, Messi – Subs - Abidal, Sanchez, Dos Santos, Bartra, Montoya - Real Madrid's line-up has yet to be confirmed, but we'll bring it to you as soon as we have it.
    • 19:15 Meanwhile Barcelona's vice-president Jose Maria Bartomeu has admitted the club want Neymar when he becomes available. 'Barcelona will be there to try to sign him'
    • 19:10 Some interesting stories about both clubs circulating this evening. First of all for Real there is continued speculation that Ronaldo could return to Manchester United after claims that he, by virtue of his image rights, effectively pays Real Madrid more than they pay him. Read all about that one here
    • 19:05 In the first leg at the Bernabeu there was no splitting the sides in a 1-1 draw. Fabregas struck first for Barcelona, but Real defender Varane equalised. Report
    • 19:00 Hello and welcome to live text commentary from the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final. It's Barcelona v Real Madrid at the Nou Camp, and kick-off is just one hour away.
  • Summary

    • 89' GOAL! BARCELONA HAVE ONE BACK! JORDI ALBA ROUNDS OFF A SUPER MOVE! It came from a delightful dinked pass from Iniesta, and was tucked away on the volley by Alba into the far corner. Meagre consolation, but lovely goal.

    • 63' PEDRO GOES DOWN AGAIN! NO PENALTY! Again, he was looking for it, and he might have got his shot away had he concentrated on what was in front of him. Error from the Real Madrid back four to cede possession in a dangerous area.

    TO COMMENT NUMBER 167, Your an idiot full stop. La Liga­ is Barcelona's main trophy then the champions­ league then the copa del ray.I would rather be top of­ the League and looking like winning it than winning the­ copa del ray and finish 3rd in league. Real Madrid­ could end up been out of champions league and finishing­ 3rd in la liga and winning the copa del ray, hmmmmm­ League title or copa del ray.

  10. We were beaten and i have to admit it. We need Tito­ back...as soon as he recovers from his treatment.

    From Delyan, on Tue 26 Feb 22:31
  11. The beginning of Barcelona's reign started last­ year. The once great Mesi and co. are old. If­ they're not old in age they, look "old"­ on the pitch. RM played with such vigor today that­ there was absolutely nothing Barcelona could do. From­ the opening whistle RM looked beyond superior than­ Barcelona. It's over for Barcelona. The consolation­ prize will be La Liga's title and nothing more.­ Please, no CL crown for them. AC Milan is way better­ than Barcelona this season. Bye-bye, Ba-the-lona!­ Bye, bye. Forever United!

    From Ain't Lion, on Tue 26 Feb 22:27

  16. It was RM game and they play well. Barca can still win­ on Weekend although RM can already concede the season­ to Barca. Both clubs should rest starter for CL return­ games. RM will need rest before going to ManU at OT. ­ With such an organization, RM will be hard to beat.

  20. Is it just me or is it normal that Barcelona play Real­ Madrid so many times each season? personally I think­ that these matches are fixed to generate money from the­ El Classico fans haha stupid humans paying to watch­ matches that are fixed they are basically getting­ robbed and it's making footballers rich. How else­ do you think Barcelona are able to pay Messi's 600k­ a week wage? it's because they have so many El­ Classico's that generate so much money from the­ fans in that gigantic stadium. The same will happen­ next season Barcelona vs Real Madrid in all­ competitions. what a scandal.
