Barcelona forward Lionel Messi's historic record in El Clasico vs. Real Madrid

Gareth Bale refused to celebrate with Lucas Vasquez

"They didn't take their chances and we have to prevent them having so many openings in the next game".

Karim Benzema is their top scorer so far this season with 11 goals, Gareth Bale is second with seven, whilst Ronaldo has 19 for Juventus in Serie A. The Catalan club also benefited from an own goal by Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

Real Madrid couldn't put Barcelona away when it had the chance, and ended up being dealt a hard blow by its biggest rival.

"We are upset. It was a hard blow", Madrid coach Santiago Solari said.

Barcelona and Real Madrid played to a 1-1 draw in the first leg. Lucas Vázquez gave Real Madrid an early advantage when he scored in the sixth minute, but Malcom-who started in place of Lionel Messi-evened the match with a 57th-minute strike. They didn't take their chances in the first half but we took ours later.

Madrid hasn't made it to the Copa final since it won its last title in 2014 against Barcelona. Football is about goals, being ruthless, and taking your chances, and they did that. But this Real Madrid has something to say about it.

Ernesto Valverde's side will now face Valencia or Real Betis, currently tied 2-2 on aggregate following their first leg, in the final on May 25 in Sevilla.

Another setback against Barcelona will practically end Madrid's title hopes in the league, leaving the Champions League as the only competition in which it can succeed in its first season without Cristiano Ronaldo in almost a decade.

"To play here is the ultimate challenge, but the performance of the team has been unbelievable - we can't have asked for more from ourselves in terms of the cup recently".

It's clear that Vinicius is heavily involved in his side's play. It was once again a counter attack as the Uruguyuan Luis Suarez was brought down by Casemiro in the penalty box.

In contrast, Suarez had barely touched the ball in the first half but came alive in the crucial moments and would have had a hat-trick had Varane not beaten him to Ousmane Dembele's cross to bundle in an own-goal. It was not a well-rounded game from us, I have to admit.

It remains to be seen whether action will be taken on this, but if true, it is a truly classless act by the Madrid fans and would need to be addressed soon.
