Madrid Soccer Among The Four Best In Spain

Posted: Feb. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Historic soccer teams Real Madrid and Athletico Madrid have both qualified for the Copa del Rey Semi Final. Both team are playing in different legs so the possibility still persist that they could in fact face each other in the Final. It would be a complete Madridista final.

Last season's King's Cup final was contested by the two teams who have won it the most times—Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao.

The chances are high that this season's could take a step down and be played out by the third- and fourth-most successful teams in the competition's history.

It could be a fiesta of madrisimo. Real versus Atletico.

Los Blancos' 2-0 lead over Valencia should carry them through to the semifinal, where they will meet either Malaga or Barcelona. With less impetus on the league,Mourinho's men may become a cup team.

Los Rojiblancos have the easier route. Already 2-0 up from the first leg against RealBetis, progress will see them encounter either Unai Emery's Sevilla or Manolo Jimenez's Real Zaragoza.
