Copa del Rey

El Clásico! Real Madrid beats Barça 2:1. You don’t have to say anything more …;-)

Playing against Barcelona is always great. On the one hand an entire nation and many fans outside of Spain are anxiously following the match because of the “classic rivalry” between the clubs. Both teams are packed with world class soccer players and there are way more than Messi playing on the other side for Barcelona. Therefore, there is always a special tension. You have the expectations of the fans and you definitely do not want to let them down. And then there are the expectations for yourself. If you want to be a great player, this is where you have to stand your ground!
