Barcelona VS Real Madrid Schedule - Real Madrid are in the final of the Copa del Rey. Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo early in each half left Barcelona an impossible task and the pain was far from over.
When it comes to head to head matches against Barça, Mourinho's Madrid have become the better side: the past six meetings have seen Madrid effectively clinch the league, win the Spanish Super Cup and now claim a place in the Copa del Rey final, as well as drawing 2-2 here in October. Ronaldo too has become more dominant than Leo Messi.

Trailing by 16 points, the league is Barcelona's but that did not feel like it mattered much here: this was humiliating for the home side, worrying too. The sheer speed of Mourinho's team was breathtaking. At times it appears to take little to score against Barcelona. It was also the 12th consecutive game in which Barcelona had conceded and their task was now huge. Barcelona had to score but knew that another Madrid goal and they would need three. A long ball from Sami Khedira, Di María ran at Carles Puyol and José Pinto saved his shot only for the ball to drop to Ronaldo, who brought it down on his chest and finished Barcelona off. When Alba scored it simply did not matter.
