Barcelona and Real Madrid once again lock horns tonight as the two sides battle to win the Copa del Rey.

Tonight's final at the Estadio Mestalla is the third meeting between the two teams this season - and Gerardo Martino's Barca have come out on top in both games, winning 2-1 at the Camp Nou before a 3-2 win at the Santiago Bernabeu in March.

Whilst they haven't met as often as recent seasons, this is now the fourth season in a row that Spain's two most illustrious sides have faced off in the Copa del Rey - and with such a fierce rivalry, both sides will be looking to grab a trophy.

Barcelona are currently undergoing a respective slump having failed to score in the last two games, losing to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League before a shock defeat to Granada at the weekend, seriously putting their title hopes in doubt.

Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid have had a much less eventful week, seeing off Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League before a 4-0 thumping of Almeria at the weekend.

Barcelona may have won the last two meetings, but on current form, Madrid may just be slight favourites to lift the trophy tonight.
