Real Madrid lambasted Getafe winning 4-0 at home. All the four goals were scored in the decisive half of the game as a perfect warm up for El Clasico on Wednesday.
Getafe failed to create clear cut opportunities and as a result of which they could not score. Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo had a great time in the second period. The number 7 player scored a sensational hat-trick and looks in top class form ahead of the game against fierce rivals Barcelona in the Copa del Rey.
Ronaldo was assisted by Di Maria and Ozil respectively for his opening two goals of the game. The third came from 12 yards out when he converted a penalty. The Portuguese superstar was taken off by Jose Mourinho in the 73rd minute to make way for Karim Benzema. Wednesday’s Spanish Cup fixture against Barcelona is a very crucial one with final tickets at stake. Real Madrid have already lost the La Liga.
They will face Manchester United in Europe and it is an open secret that the Champions League is arguably the most difficult trophy to win. Silverware is extremely important for a club like Real Madrid. While winning the Copa del Rey is plausible, there is much work which needs to be done before the team can put their hands on the Spanish Cup. Barcelona have been in tip-top form. Last weekend’s defeat against Real Sociedad could only propel the Catalan giants towards greater things. Would Cristiano Ronaldo be able to win the tie against Barcelona single-handedly? The answer will soon be revealed in the first ‘El Clasico’ of the year 2013.
Several factors could decide El Clasico on Wednesday night. They are all being discussed by soccer pundits ahead of this Spanish Cup battle. Barcelona have never hesitated to replace Victor Valdes by Pinto in cup matches. Like it happened in the 2011/12 Spanish quarter-finals or in the 2010 Copa del Rey final, Pinto is expected to be in post against Real Madrid. This time, his opposite number will not be Iker Casillas. The World Cup winner suffered a serious hand injury against Valencia last week and will not return to action until April or May according to club doctors. Could the omission of first-choice goalkeepers Victor Valdes and Iker Casillas – for Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively – spark a goal fiesta at the Bernabeu on Wednesday?

On this note, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the two star players that come to mind. They have proven to be a curse to defenders in Spain. In last time’s Clasico, Messi and Ronaldo made the pitch theirs, grabbing a brace each to prove that they are a class above the rest. That league game in October 2012 ended 2-2 with Cristiano Ronaldo stealing a point for his side after La Pulga had put the Catalans 2-1 up. Last weekend, the Real Madrid number 7 netted a hat-trick against Getafe but Barcelona’s number 10 went one better with a quartet against Osasuna. Which player will outshine the other in the first leg of this Spanish Cup semi-final tie?
