Barcelona vs Real Madrid Preview
The semifinals of the Copa de la Reina will serve as the backdrop for a Clásico match between Barcelona and Real Madrid. The match will be played at the Santo Domingo Stadium.
For Barcelona, this game comes at the right time. The blaugrana are coming off a loss in the Champions League final against Olympique de Lyon 3-1. Despite their defeat, the Blaugrana team is one of the best in the world and dominates the Spanish league with solvency beyond any doubt.
The Catalans are also in search of their third title of the season after winning the Iberdrola League and the Spanish Super Cup.

Add to this, injuries to players such as Cata, Jana y Bruna, will make the team’s life miserable. The last three players are all out until next season for their return.
