Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals against the number one team in Spain as of right now. Although this might be debatable as Madrid knocked Barcelona out of the Copa del Rey tournament. The Final is going to be played in Barcelona's home without Barcelona in attendance.

These were set to be eight decisive days – Barcelona away, Barcelona at home and Manchester United away – but the threat was always a promise too and here it was fulfilled, the first hurdle overcome with ease, over almost as soon as it had begun. Real Madrid are in the final of theCopa del Rey. Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo early in each half left Barcelona an impossible task and the pain was far from over.

With the score 2-0 to Madrid on the night, 3-1 on aggregate, the Catalans were left to play the final half an hour more out of obligation than anything else. And then with 68 minutes gone, Raphaël Varane headed the third to bring José Mourinho's finger to his lips and make this another brilliant night. Jordi Alba's goal was irrelevant, clinched in the 88th minute before a half-empty stadium.
