The Real Madrid did strong in Santiago Bernabéu and achieved no only recover the first square with a point of advantage, but also the 'goal average' that equivale to if they went two. It is thus that, a week afterwards, the culés can not allow a new trip.

This Saturday, the Catalan team receives in the Camp Nou to a Real Sociedad that comes to achieve put in the final of the Glass of Rey and that, does some weeks, in this same competition, already had achieved to delete to the team of Zinedine Zidane marking four goals in the Bernabéu.
