Preview: Real Madrid vs FC Barcelona (Copa del Rey Semi Final first leg)

The first Clásico of 2013 takes place tomorrow night (Wednesday, 9 pm) as Real Madrid and Barça meet in the Copa del Rey Semi Final first leg at the Santiago Bernabéu. Jordi Roura has named 19 players for the trip to the Spanish capital, leaving only Martin Montoya, Isaac Cuenca and Cristian Tello in Barcelona along with the unavailable Eric Abidal, Marc Muniesa and Johnathan dos Santos.Real Madrid have been having a torrid time this season. Reports of dressing room discontent with coach José Mourinho have been plentiful and poor results in the league have left them fifteen points adrift of Barça at the top of the table. There is no doubt that Mourinho’s style of management has brought a certain amount of success to the teams he has coached, but at the same time it is clear that his manner also creates problems.
