The Copa del Rey final will take place on 20 April, once again in Valencia's Mestalla stadium. The two finalists will be Spain's big two, Real Madrid and Barcelona, who meet in the Spanish cup final for the first time in 21 years. (04.02.11)
Real Madrid won the cup for the first time in 18 years after beating Barcelona with a goal from Ronaldo in extra time. (20.04.11)
Barcelona: Pinto; Dani Alves, Piqué,
Mascherano, Adriano (Maxwell 119'); Xavi, Busquets (Keita 108'), Iniesta;
Pedro, Messi, David Villa (Afellay 104'). 4-3-3.
Madrid: Casillas; Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Carvalho (Garay 120'), Marcelo; Khedira (Granero 104'), Pepe, Xabi Alonso; Di María, Cristiano Ronaldo, Özil (Adebayor 69'). 4-3-3.
0-1. 103. Ronaldo. Far post header back across Pinto from Di María's cross.
A goal in extra time from Cristiano Ronaldo was enough to give Real Madrid their first Spanish cup title in eighteen years.
This was the second of four meetings in eighteen days between the two sides, and Mourinho repeated the defensive formation he used in the 1-1 draw at the weekend, with all three of his centre forwards on the bench.
Even so they had the better of the first half, with Ronaldo having an early effort cleared off the line by Mascherano, and Özil shooting just wide. Cup keeper Pinto had to make a couple of saves from Ronaldo later on, and Pepe headed an Özil cross against the post just before the break.
The second half though belonged to Barcelona, Pedro having a goal disallowed for a marginal offside, and Casillas having to keep out efforts from Messi, Pedro and Iniesta. However with the scoreline unmoved the game went in to extra time, and Ronaldo got above Adriano to head Di María's cross past Pinto to put his side in front.
Barça tried their best to get back, but Adebayor and Ronaldo could have added to the lead, and although Di María was sent off for a second bookable offence, the game ended seconds later. First blood to Mourinho, Champions League up next!
